Peanut butter and Fluff on Wonder bread. Just make sure you don't rip the bread when making it.

Potted meat.

It's worse than Spam.

Damn you, mom and dad.


Good thing it's actually labelled "Food Product", otherwise I wouldn't know what to do with it.

The food bank variety doesn't usually have that on the label. You are just supposed to assume what they give you is edible.

I ate these all the time. For some reason, we called it a "rodeo".

I will still resort to this as a "dessert" if none other is available.

Fluff is in itself more of a Boston/New England thing as it is made in Lynn, MA. I've never heard of the Fluff migrating north. When I used to live in NY, my friend saw a jar of fluff in my kitchen and couldn't figure it out and thought it was white trash. This from the girl who would make sweet potato pie for Thanksgiving.

A great use for fluff is to put into hot chocolate. Amazing.

See, the problem is the Hawaiian bread. Everyone knows you put potted meat on Ritz crackers.
While it looks pretty gross, potted meat is loosely based on the French rillette. Rillette is usually made with pork. You cook the meat until it basically falls apart and then you chop/puree/pulverize and add back plenty of pork fat. After that, it was stored in crocks covered with a barrier of fat to seal it up. With the salt and the copius amount of fat, the mixture was somewhat preserved and could last for a while. I've been to French bistros where rillette was served as an appetizer with a baquette.

Completely with you on the rillettes. One of my favorite things, period, and to my understanding usually made with shoulder or belly (Vancouverites / visitors - get thee to Oyama at Granville Island). But this stuff is probably composed of lips and arseholes!

Peanut butter and honey with sliced banana rounds on wheat. The banana rounds were placed on the peanut butter and honey was drizzled over them before topping with the second piece of bread. Then the sandwich was halved and dunked in whole milk.

My mom used to make me something similar, but she would toast the bread, butter it, and sprinkle it with cinnamon and sugar. I too have made this on occasion when I had nothing else to eat but a craving for something sweet.

Still enjoy this, almost every morning.
