And of course there's the cannibal sandwich of my youth. Raw ground beef mixed with onions, salt and pepper and slathered on white bread. I could really go for one of those right now. Yum!

I made some awesome stock from some locally-raised free-range chickens this past weekend. I saved the schmaltz for toast, but I'm going to make some "Mr. Hoffman's Special" rye & onion sandwiches.

As for those "cannibal sandwiches", although I've never tried one, I probably would like it, and I'm going to make one soon. I buy local beef, and I'm not at all worried about the "health risk".

I believe any well-done hamburger from any place in this country is worse for you than a raw piece of meat from a local, free-range, organically-raised steer. And, back when Mr. Hoffman was a kid (a LOOOOOONNNNNGGGGG time ago ), he didn't have to worry about his beef being filled with all the crap this is in there today.

I hope you like the schmaltz. It's especially good when it has gribbenes mixed in. (Gribbenes are cracklings -- the crisp bits of poultry skin and browned onion left from rendering schmaltz.)Now, about that LOOOOOONNNNNGGGGG time ago ...

You'll get yours.

I was in Brussels several years ago and I had lunch with some colleagues that were from there. They all ordered carpaccio. I did not know what the hell it was. When it wa delivered, I was shocked. It looked like dog food. I will admit that I did try it and was unable to consume it. Just a small amount. The meat was highly seasoned and as I recall, it did not taste bad. It was a mental thing with me. I also recall that it was made from high quality beef.

I have no qualms about eating raw fish from salt water although raw fish from the lakes are out. I generally consume raw fish from the ocean on my sushi.

I had a friend that worked with the group that the Kennedy's started where you take a year off and help poorer nations develop. He got a good gig off the one of the remote Phillipines Islands. He existed almost every day on raw fish which he caught when he was snorkling. He enjoyed it very much. Sometimes he would marinate them in lemons, limes, grapefruite or other acid fruits but most of the time, it was just the raw fruit of the sea.

My apologies Mr. Hoffman. I guess the fact that you grind your own makes a difference. I still don't think this sounds very appealing but as aforementioned it may be a regional and/or generation thing.

And yes, I have had sushi and raw oysters.

My husband thinks my spaghetti sandwiches in front of the computer are weird. (Spaghetti off the plate & on the garlic bread, with extra garlic salt, when you're very busy and/or in a hurry.) He should've considered the source!

This discussion about raw chopped beef sandwiches gave me a hankering for one of my favorite dishes, steak tartare, so I ordered it in a restaurant a few days ago. Delicious! I have never gotten sick from consuming this (knock on wood!), and I basically presume that a restaurant that is going to have it on its regular menu (such as the wonderful French bistro I went to last week) is going to be extra cautious to make sure that the beef they have is of appropriately good quality and safe, because the potential for illness (and subsequent liability!) is that much greater than with cooked food.

In a good restaurant they'll grind the beef themselves, so I wouldn't worry about anything.

My brother used to make what I dubbed the "super-duper nothing sandwich". He spread the bread with ketsup, mayo, mustard, pickle relish, and then discovered we had no bologna. So, he put the pieces of bread together and ate them anyway. After that, he often made it on purpose that way.

The weirdest sandwich I personally ate was when mom had me try peanut butter, mayo and banana. (But not fried, a la Elvis) I remember liking it, but have never made it for myself.

We used to make a "summer sandwich" that had no meat. Just tomatoes onions cucumbers lettuce or whatever was in the garden. Add a little mayo or mustard on it and it was all good!

I love open-faced tuna salad on toasted blueberry bagels, and when I was young, I fancied mayo, butter, and ketchup on a homemade biscuit.

My father used to eat peanut butter and sardine sandwiches. Also, after Thanksgiving, he would make - believe it or not - stuffing sandwiches!

Mustard and a slice of cheese on white was a favorite of mine along with peanut butter and dill pickle.
My Dad used to fry up some eggs over easy and break the eggs up in a bowl just enough to coat it all in the yoke and put that on white or rye.
My Mom loved what she called Little Green Oinion Sandwiches, early onions on white with black pepper and butter
My wife loves Peanut butter on corn on the cob

After reading your posts I don't think my sandwich is weird after all. Creamy peanut butter and strawberry preserves, grilled in butter. Runny and messy to eat but so good. Lord, I love those things. They're great for breakfast. I'm gonna put some thin slices of banana in there next time...

My dad's favorite sandwich was peanut butter and sweet pickles. Not that bad, but not my favorite. My favorites that people think are odd include banana and mayo on white or wheat, grape jelly on dill rye, and bacon or ham, lettuce and pineapple on white with mayo. I don't like tomatoes, but pineapple seems to fill the same kind of juicy, tangy space in my palate of food choices.

As with all of the other choices mentioned above, don't knock it until you've tried it!

Have a great weekend!

Oh but did he ever try a large slice of sweet onion with ketchup?..
Hmmmm..
I would make a burger and then just eat the onion with the ketchup first, and then finish the burger....
