Satan sandwich!

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?

  1. 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!"

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

      1. 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."

        1. 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.

              1. re: Sloth

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

          2. 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.

                Thank you for making me laugh (I think I even snorted a bit) :) BTW license the term free trade for food as fast as you can $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

                  Recycled Birkenstocks? Oh man, no!

                    Maybe the idea is that their scent will mask the undeodorized wearer's own "natural armpit aura."
