We used to have corned mutton. It always tasted like salty cardboard to me.

I found the ingredients in spam still nothing on the camp pie

:eek: Spam is made of a few simple ingredients: ham, pork, sugar, salt, water, a little potato starch, and some sodium nitrite (which helps to keep the pink colour - without it Spam would be grey).

I remember camp pie was a square ish tin with rounded corners so you could use a key to open it and it slipped onto a plate in a square block,you ate it cold as it was unsuitable for heating. Very fatty, I think it was made of offal and it WAS offal:2fun: A horrid grey/pink color. I think it was given to the Aussie diggers as part of their rations.We used to slice it and put it onto a piece of bread and cover it with tomato sauce.Coming from a large family of 12 kids, that was a treat, our junk food :eek: :eek: along with the regular
Friday night (we looked forward to it) creamed potatoes with slices of bung fritz. With home made chutney.Yum.

Yes i remember opening the tins with keys :biggrin:
 
Sounds like Haslet. A sort of meat loaf made up of pigs offal and cereal. My dad used to buy slices of it at market. I found it vile myself.
 
I had toaster like that only mine was round, we used to make toasted jam sandwiches on the open fire.

And a lot of people think the electric ones are amazing.

I'd prefer the one on the link, nothing like smoked toast and butties. Toasted cheese and onion on a toasting fork. Yummeeeee.:)
I used to make my own toasting forks out of welding rods.:)
 
I had an email from Africa once saying that they had traced me as the only surviving relative of Professor Duckweed who had left me a huge amount of money. That must have been an amazing piece of research.

Prof Duckweed..brilliant.
I once got an email from a Pablo Bender(serious)...wont tell you what he was trying to sell.

Hi all
Hamper Camp Pie

It’s a favourite Aussie snack. Slice it for a sandwich, layer it on a crusty roll. Add a dash of mustard or pickles, and you’ve got a great meal made. Take it anywhere in a 340g can.
