What are your favorite deli meats? I just tried the most wonderful thing.. a garlic and herb turkey breast, sliced medium thick..I couldn't even bear to put it on bread..it was too good for bread.. I've also loved a turkey "black forest" style ham, that I can't seem to find anywhere else... these are followed by dry salami (gallo brand only please), roast beef, sweet lebanon bologna (can't get it here though, and not in a sandwich), regular bologna (in a chunk or thickly sliced) and horror of horrors but I love it...chopped ham.

German Bologna, Mortedella (hard to find), and Salami (any type). I don't know if it is considered a deli meat, but I love Liverwurst !!!

If you are looking for mortedella (or one of a variety of other hard-to-find sausages and deli meats), try going to http://www.usingers.com. They sell an amazing array of sausage by mail. It isn't nearly as good as a visit to their shop, were the white aproned lady behind the counter gives a child a free slice of bologna and you can inhale those wonderful smells, but at least you can get the sausage that you crave.

Smoked meat from either Schwartz's in Montreal or Center Street Deli near Toronto.

How about headcheese from just about any good German butcher? And Laberkasse, warm, on rye bread with a bit of mustard, also from a German shop?

Seafarer, is laberkasse a german style meatloaf? Do you know what the main ingredients are? Thanks.

I'm partial to Serrano ham, Black forest ham, roast pork and occasionally, german bologna for a fried bologna sandwich!

Topferment: Labercasse (various spellings) is a very mild
liverwurst type of cold cut - usually eaten warm in a sandwich.
I don't know the ingredients, but I suspect it is made from scraps of pork,beef,veal, and livers. It is somewhat like bologna with a liver overtone

Good NY pastrami, hands down. There's something wrong with chopped ham, though?!

some people look down their noses at chopped ham.. frankly I often like it better than the real thing.

I do too unless the ham is 12-month-or-more-old country ham. Ain't nary nothin' better'n that!

Good, well aged prosciutto is my favorite. I like it by itself, in a sandwich with a little provolone and olive oil, maybe some roncini peppers. Its also good as an appetizer with a little melon. Fortunately there are lots of good italian deli's here in Boston, so good prosciutto is reasonably easy to get.

Prosciutto, imported is fantastic. It needs nothing with it but good Italian bread and possibly some provolone. But prosciutto is becoming as common as Oscar Meyer bologna.

Mortadella is always good with a little smidge of mustard amd sliced plum tomatoes on sliced Italian bread.

But the all time greatest is Sopresetta aged in wine.Forget bread, tomatoes and all that stuff. It just takes away from the heavenly taste of Sopresetta.

Want the recipe for the ultimate Hoagie. Mmmm meraviglioso!I have it. You'll love it.

Jennifer4-

I agree, dry salami(Gallo) is top notch when it comes to cold cuts, but I have to agree with scbuzz and topferment when they
vote for Braunschweiger/Liverwurst. A little brown mustard,lettuce + a kaiser roll. Sorry, gotta go(juilia I), because Usinger's is just brisk walk away from where I live!(Great little shop).

Michael Stern- Knoblewurst? Is this an east coast sausage?
