Satan sandwich!

rudysmom Aug 1, 2011 08:33 AM

i had never heard this expression until this morning, when Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) used the term to describe the newly hatched deal to raise the debt ceiling. (actually, he said "sugar-coated Satan sandwich," which is even better).
of course, we got to thinking, what would be on a Satan sandwich? deviled ham topped with deviled eggs seems too obvious. plus, we couldn't think of a good bread. your thoughts?

    Clearly, seitan.

    When I saw your post title, I thought you were making a comment about a misspelling on a menu at a vegan restaurant!

      That's what I thought. My daughter and I like seitan in some dishes, but the one time my husband tried it, he asked, "What IS this?" When I replied "seitan," his response was, "With a name like that, no wonder I don't like it!"

      Maybe it's very filling. A satin' sandwich.

        Large raised Devil's food doughnuts, ala the Paula Deen instant-heart-attack burger. A schmear of deviled ham could be your own special touch, or you could add a mustard spread to mayo, which would elevate the mayo to the level of "deviled."

          Typed "Satan Sandwich" in Google images and got this
          A vegetarian Jamaican jerk sandwich. I wonder how it would taste covered in sugar?

            Vegetarian jerk? I'd not heard that one before, I'll have to investigate. Do they use bean curd?

              Hard to tell from the picture and the description doesn't go into that kind of detail. But I think its a good guess.

                Since they called it a "satan" sandwhich I think it would be a pretty fair guess to say they used seitan.

            Probably free-trade tofu and wheat germ on organic, multi-grain bread with locally sourced, artificial, micro greens accompanied by a glass of solar-distilled rainwater all to be consumed while siting in yoga-pose dressed in self made hemp clothing and recycled Birkenstocks.

                  bbqed ham beef pork chorizo, and lamb, with avocados, tomatoes, onions,
                  and bbq sauce, green salsa and smoky red hot sauce.
                  The sugar is to coat the whole thing in, along with 2 eggs, one fried inside, and deep fry.

                    The Broodwich (the most evil sandwich ever created) was "forged in darkness from wheat harvested in Hell's half acre. Baked by Beelzebub. Slathered with mayonnaise beaten from the evil eggs of dark chickens forced into sauce by the hands of a one-eyed mad man. Cheese boiled from the rancid teat of a fanged cow. Layered with 666 separate meats from an animal which has maggots for blood."

                    Dijon mustard. No bacon, there being no swine evil enough to sacrifice upon a bed of evil and lettuce...

                                I have to agree with you there. Happen to agree with Cleaver, too.

                                Or it could be lutefisk and casu marzu on Wonder bread with a schmear of natto—cut in quarters, of course, with a cleaver.

                                      Maybe the most politically incorrect food topped with Dave's Insanity brand Hot Sauce (as a hot food lover, one drop of this sauce is way over the top....seriously).

                                      Deviled Ham (if you read Upton Sinclair's The Jungle, you may never eat that again), mixed with Dave's Insanity Hot Sauce.

                                        It would be habenaro puree spread on Wonder bread, topped with chopped deviled eggs, and marshmallow fluff.

                                            I was nodding my head, anticipating "Miracle Whip" instead of fluff.

                                            Actually, somehow the idea of deviled eggs, deviled ham and MW seems... "right" (not "good").

                                                  I'd go with decadence and heat. Bread would be devil's food cake rolls. Since there's a chocolate thing going on, and it has to be a sandwich, let's go with something that mimics a mole dish. So, I'd have peanut foam on top. Under that, some pickled raisins. Then, the chile pepper layer. Not too sure about the meat. I'm thinking braised and shredded goat leg. And, for some reason, I feel the need to stuff some deep fried pig tails in there.

                                                          And yes, I would eat that bacon.

                                                            I love the stuff. Many years ago one of my first jobs was managing a non-chain burger joint, and we had to deepfry 40 lbs. of bacon a day. It was SO good on a BLT made w/ fried green tomatoes and finely shredded lettuce and a ton of mayo.

                                                        "The trick was in the muffuletta - a mixture of olives, cauliflower, celery, onion, garlic, carrots and several kinds of peppers and in the hot pepper spread, a ruby-colored concoction of crushed peppers, crushed garlic and salt marinated in olive oil for a week to 10 days.

                                                        Between the pepper spread smeared on a fresh Italian roll and the muffuletta piled on top, Glorioso layered provolone made from raw milk with slices of calabrese and cappicola sausages."

                                                          Or venison from the vampire deer, an actual creature. The Chinese water deer has fangs instead of antlers.

                                                                A pickled pigs lip on a stick in a corn muffin coat.
