Appalachian Potted Meat Salad

Gina Davis


OK I know most are saying "????? Potted Meat??!! Really???!!!!???? Well yep' good old Potted Meat! I hate it lol but I love Potted Meat Salad! Being from the Appalachian Mountains and from a VERY LARGE FAMILY (8 kids) this was a staple in our household. Food had to be on the cheap side and it had to STRETTTCCCHHH! Also this is a fave of my husbands he is a Underground Coal Mine Boss and he loves his Potted Meat Salad! It holds up well underground and it does not soak into the bread. Give this try, I really think you will be surprised with how good it is! I like it best on Saltines or Ritzs.
