How do you make an edible potted meat sandwich?

As promised, here's question number three?
How do you make your potted meat sandwich. C'mon. Don't be shy. You know you secretly love the stuff. I do. It's pure comfort food from my childhood. But I detest deviled ham.

Ingredients;
1 can Libby's potted meat
2 tbs. Miracle Whip Salad Dressing
2 tbs. sweet pickle relish
1/8 cup finely chopped onion.
2 slices toasted whole wheat bread

Combine the potted meat, salad dressing, relish, and chopped onion. Spread a thick layer between the slices of toasted bread. Serve with Milk.

It's usually found on the same grocery isle on the top shelf just down from the canned tuna. It is usually (ugh!) the bits and scraps left over from meat processing, cooked and then canned into small tins of 1/4 to 1/2 cup size. Spam, deviled ham, canned chicken are some examples. Chipped beef is a potted meat, but not made from scraps (it comes in a jar) and pound for pound, one of the most expensive meats you'll ever eat! The navy used to serve creamed chipped beef on toast for breakfast - and was the most expensive meal it served... including lobster stew.

Open can.
Gag and lean over sink.
Knock opened can on floor.
Pretend not to notice.
Continue gagging until dog comes to see what's up.
Kick can toward dog if necessary.
Continue gagging over sink until dog eats "meat."
Say "BAD DOG!"
Make onion sandwich with remaining ingredients.
Be happy.

Am I the only foodie around here that's not squeemish? I mean, I know people on this site who eat haggis! And if you go to a Fa (sp) restaurant in Tacoma, you will get honeycomb tripe in your soup. After all, it's just cartilage and collagen, the things that make a great soup great when you boil the bones and their connecting tissues. It's what Jello is made from. And the other ingredients, they are, after all, muscle tissue, just not from parts we normaly thing to eat from. But then again, in Mexico, hog's head soup is a sought after meal, due to the great flavors and muscles from the hog's head. And the hog ears, well, when pressure cooked, they are a fourmet sandwich ingredient in parts of the U.S.

It's all good.

Potted meat... I am a bit of a snob, and prefer Underwood's Deviled Ham.
But that 39 cent a tin No Name stuff has gotten inside of me more than a few
times. (I also like Vienna Sausages!)

For me, the condiments and flavorings that can be used in the preparation of a
Canned Meat Sandwich are limited.... they must be available in a convenience
store's stock of single serving packages...
Mayo, mustard, hot sauce, relish, chopped onions are the classics, and they
are what I use. The hot sauce and mustard go on top.
And it should be eaten using plain soda crackers, not bread.

Yeah, I used to work convenience stores. Became kind of a guerrilla gourmet
trying to figure out interesting food combos from the cheap stuff. (This was
back when a hot dog roller machine was Fancy Deli food for a C-Store).

My philosophy has always been "if I eat a hot dog, no reason not to eat all the
other mystery meat products!!"

You know how they say (in PA) that Scrapple is "everything but the oink"?

Well, potted meat is all that stuff they won't even put in scrapple...

PS: Anything that lists as a primary ingredient "mechanically separated chicken" makes me worry.

What exactly does it mean to "mechanically separate" a chicken?!

More importantly, do I even want an answer to that question?!?!?!

Ahhhhhh hell....

My curiosity got the best of me...

Mechanically separated meat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I'm soooo glad I'm a strict Kosher hot dog guy...

Don't click the link if you like things like potted meat, canned deviled ham, or Slim Jims....

Then you have "mechanically separated meat" that goes into things like McNuggets.

I used to eat it when I was a lot younger and drove a tractor. I would keep a few cans in my lunch box. But I have not had it in years.

What did the judge in the "fat" case call them? "McFrankensteins"?
