I have a really good sweet and sour cubed Spam recipe that is served like sweet and sour meatballs.

 
Do I know you?
 
Wow, Great to hear from you Ann!

      Years ago, when I was on vacation in Scotland, I was introduced to potted meats. OMG..they were delish, spread on crackers, bread, etc. I have not been able to find this in Canada..but i suppose if i looked hard enough I would.
       
      There is an Italian product that I think is good, but as a kid i abhored it. It is called Simmentella, a corned beef product. Anyone on here ever tried?

              I eat vienna sausages every now and then when I have a craving.  I hate that I can never get that first one out without tearing another sausage, a pet peeve.  I want each one perfect, I never eat the last one.  By the time I get to it I've had enough.  Love the Mary Kitchen roast and corn beef hashes.  HATE Sweet Sue chicken and dumplings, but like canned white meat chicken for a quick chicken caesar salad.  I have two cans of Hormel roast beef and gravy(from Mom's hurricane survival "kit") I've never tried.  Would it be worth a hoot to season up a bit and make open face sandwiches???

                  The way to get all of them out of the Vienna sausage can without tearing or bruising is to drain the liquid and then tap the can, upside down so that the open top of the can faces your palm, on the heel of youor hand. That causes the entire contents to slide out. If having food in your hand is something you would prefer to avoid then just tap the edge of the open end onto a hard surface.

                    Canned chicken - ok for chicken salad sandwich made with chopped boiled egg.
                     
                    I make a quicky chicken noodle soup, using chicken broth, a can of drained chicken, egg noodles cooked in the broth, then topped with fresh, chopped parsley.  No gourmet treat, but just fine when you have a cold and don't feel up to going out.

                      Mellow, wherd ya go??? You were right about Little Debbie, daaa, senior  moment! I edited my post. The real good vienna type sausages were Prairie Belt Smoked sausage and are made by Castleberry. They still make em I think but maybe kinda hard to find. Like Viennas on steroids!!!
                       
                      Rusty, glad I'm not the only one that loves Mary's Kitchen!

                        Yes, come to think of it, I've seen Prairie Belt at Food Lion.  Never tried it before but will pick some up next time I'm in the neighborhood.   Will pick up some Mary's Kitchen, too; haven't tried that before.
                         
                        All this talk about Vienna sausage is killing me.  One brand makes a Cajun version (Bryan, I think), and it's great sliced and layered on Wonder Bread. 
                         
                        I'm practically in Little Debbie's back yard, so when you mentioned their sausages, I nearly fell out of my chair. 
                        I grew up eating their snacks and stop at the plant store any time I get the chance.  The prices are guilt-inducingly low.

                          Mellow, lucky you! We most always have the crunchie snack stuff around our house.
                           
                          I have not seen the Cajun viennas but I would sure try that. I'll keep a look out.
                           
                          The Mary's Kitchen CBH is good w/ eggs. Sometimes I will nuke them on top and sometimes I just mix em all in. Poached would of coarse be the correct way. The roast beef hash I just eat plain but w/ some pickled jalapenos sometimes. I am known to put those on almost anything though.
                           
                          Michael, I always warn the bartender not to bruse my beer while it is being poured into a chilled glass. and you reminded me about those egg shakers who can cause the eggs to get bruised. Sounds like you have made an are outa not brusing those Viennas. I am the same way w/ canned tamales. Hmm, is that canned meat?
                           
                          Belle, nice canned chicken tips!
                          Joe

                            I forgot canned tamales. I get the canned beef tamales, so I guess it qualifies as canned meat.
                             
                            By the way, if you want poached eggs with your canned Mary Kitchen corned beef hash, I can get you close. When you have the hash cooking in the skillet, and after you've turned it all over for the final time, push it into a sort of thick patty, take a table spoon and press down into the hash patty enough to make an indentation that will hold a an egg, then crack the egg into the indentation. Do that around the patty for as many eggs as you want, and then cover the pan and let the eggs poach in the hash.

                              I have two cans of Hormel roast beef and gravy(from Mom's hurricane survival "kit") I've never tried.  Would it be worth a hoot to season up a bit and make open face sandwiches???


                              I haven't tried the Hormel canned roast beef and gravy, but the Hormel Compleats microwave "roast beef & gravy with mashed potatoes" are excellent.  In fact, since I was in a hurry tonight,  for supper I had a couple of packages of them which I made into sandwiches (with a little horseradish sauce) after microwaving them, and ate them with some canned green beans cooked with butter, real bacon bits and a few onion flakes.

                                  Thanks Michael! You make that sound easy.
                                   
                                  Tamales, I like Austex or Hormel Hot. I shake them out of the can onto a plate, juice and all, being careful not to bruise them. Then I nuke em for 1 min. Next I take a fork and carefully peel off the husks and put them back in the can. I have a cover that fits over the plate and I finish heating and turning them. Maybe 3 mins more. Oh sometime I putt chopped onion or cheese on. I always enjoy my plate of those Tamales. And it makes a cheep $1 meal.
                                   
                                  6star, that sounds good. I need to check out that Compleats stuff. I do green beans the same way sometimes. Oh, but I have no onion flakes. Or? Do I? Hmm, what are they?

                                    no one has mentioned Underwood's chicken spread.  My Mom makes the best chicken salad with it.  And I love a grilled SPAM sandwich on white bread with just a dab of mayo

                                      Wow, I grew up on Underwood chicken spread and probably ate hundreds of sandwiches made from it during summer breaks.  Would love to know what your mother adds to it for chicken salad.  I agree on the grilled SPAM sandwich, and I use the SPAM singles on Wonder with mayo.  If I don't have time to grill, it's great from a microwave. 
                                       
                                      Only because I was curious, I made SPAM salad not long ago using mayo, cayenne, black pepper, Worcestershire, celery, and either sweet or dill pickle relish.  Very, very good.
                                       
                                      Has anyone mentioned that Hawaii is the #1 state for SPAM consumption?

                                        Welcome back annpeeples!
                                        Around here we like Spam. My son likes to thin slice it and fry until crispy. I grew up eating deviled ham sandwiches. Wow, maybe I'll pick up a can while shopping today. My husband always took a can of vienna sausages fishing or camping as a kid and hasn't lost the taste for them. He also likes canned corned beef mixed with Jack Millers BBQ sauce, on white bread of course!

                                          6star, that sounds good. I need to check out that Compleats stuff. I do green beans the same way sometimes. Oh, but I have no onion flakes. Or? Do I? Hmm, what are they?

                                          Onion flakes are tiny pieces of dried onion (not onion powder) found in the spice section of your supermarket.  When you add them to anything with liquid (like green bean "juice" from a can of green beans) they rejuvinate themselves back to chopped onions.  I get mine at Wally World for about 50 cents to $1 a plastic bottle.  They keep practically forever, so you can have them on hand whenever you might like to add a touch of chopped onions to a cooked dish.

                                            Just did Spam and eggs for breakfast. It was wonderful.

                                              I'll chime in w/ also missing Ann around here. Ann, great to hear you are 3H... home, healthy, happy!!!
                                               
                                              Ange, BBQ corned beef. Nice tip!
                                               
                                              Thanks 6star! I ofted would like some chopped onions w/ a fast dish but don't want to bother chopping. Hmm, might I have some of these flakes hiding in my spice cabnet? Hmm, maybe easier to buy some more than look through that mess!!!
                                               
                                              Some might not believe this but I have a can of Giant Squid in my pantry. I am afraid to open it but I take it places to show it off. No one has ever seen a Giant Squid alive, and most thought they were just a legion till one washed up on shore.
                                               
                                              Now back to my search for canned Wooly Mammoth. One was served at a NY restaurant back in the 20s. They found it frozen in a glacier. Soo maybe there is some canned stuff around?

                                                I used to love those pickled sausages in a jar, but I haven't seen them in years.

                                                  My family started camping in the early 1950's with a very small cooler without much room , so we always had either vienna sausage, Treet or Spam sandwiches. 
                                                  I keep vienna sausages in my pantry for sandwiches,sliced on white bread,mustard,mayo,lettuce.  Spam or Treet salad has been one of our family staples for years.  Grate the chunk of Spam or Treet on a box grater, add minced onion,celery, sweet pickes, squirt of mustard & mayo.  Sometimes I grate in some colby cheese & make grilled Spam/Treet sandwiches.
                                                  My husband loves sardines & saltines.  So does our kitty,when he hears the rip of the metal lid & smells the sardines, he runs for his share.  One for hubby one for the kitty.

                                                    Recently, I discovered Swanson Chicken A La King, and it's some of the best stuff I've ever had from a can.  I pour it over toasted English muffins, sprinkle a little cayenne on it, and it's extremely tasty.

                                                        Well Boom 182, I guess we answered your question. I use all of the above + some not mentioned like Sardines, Salmon, Smoked Oysters, Beef & Dumplings with Gravy, Carnitas Cubed Pork in Broth, Roast Beef with Gravy, Pork Brains in Milk Gravy, And Canned Bacon!

                                                        Where do you find Pork Brains in Milk Gravy?  You did not mention Sweet Sues whole chicken in a can?


                                                        It's made by several companies, Armour is one of them. It does have 1170% of your daily cholesterol per serving. Mmmm.
