I was going to say, no, this is a list of food, and hot pockets don't qualify... but then I remembered haggis was on the list, and my argument fell apart.

I never understood the revulsion toward haggis. It's just a giant sausage. It's encased in stomach instead of intestinal casings, but what's the dif?

Haggis is made of the offal of a lamb/sheep, lungs,liver,kidney,heart, all minced up then cooked with sage/onion/oatmeal sometimes barley etc. and then stuffed in a sheeps obomasum (stomach). The first written evidence of haggis is from Lancashire in England where the recipe was written down in 1430.

Hot Pockets are 1000x more edible than haggis or head cheese. Much better than Hardtack. And I've heard of them before unlike "hominy."

I've made both head cheese and hominy from our own pigs and corn, and I've eaten Hot Pockets (once, unfortunately.) Personally, I'll take head cheese and hominy any day over that Frankenfood that lurks in the boxes in the grocer's freezer. Head cheese is simply boiled meat from a hog's head with onions, seasoning and broth added. Once cool, it turns into sort of a lunchmeat which is sliced and served on sandwiches. Meat from the cheeks and head of a pig is no worse than pork chops or pork steaks. Hominy is corn that is soaked in alkaline (lye or lime) water to remove the husk and hulls around the kernels. It is this process of nixtamalization which makes the nutrients better available. Hominy can be served whole, as in Green Chile Stew, or it can be dried and coarsely ground for hominy grits, and it can be finely ground for masa harina for tortillas. People who tried to live on plain cornmeal during the Great Depression got pellagra from niacin deficiency. Nixtamalization prevents that.

Sorry to go on such a rant, but I find it difficult to hear people complain about eating offal or lesser known cuts of meat. Because my family has chosen to be carnivores, we raise our own meat. I have personally participated at butchering time, and it isn't easy to look in the eyes of an animal who has trusted you for months to provide them with food, water, shelter, sunlight, protection, and healthy pasture, and then kill that animal. In light of their unwilling sacrifice, I feel I cannot simply cut out the choice pieces of their carcass and throw the rest away. That not only shows disrespect for the animal, but in a world where people die from hunger everyday I believe it is the utmost in arrogance. If someone has a religious or personal aversion to eating certain or all meat, that is different, and I accept their revulsion and beg their pardon if I have offended them. Otherwise all I can say is, "Try it. You might be surprised and like it."

Very interesting, ander217. I admit to being totally grossed-out by the concept of head cheese, but would reluctantly give it a try before labeling it "disgusting" as long as a.) someone recommended it as being particularly good, and b.) I confirmed what ingredients are actually in it. (there are certain things I will never eat, under any circumstances, for personal reasons) As my mom once said to me as I cringed at the sight of shrimp, "You can't say you don't like it if you haven't tried it." BTW, I loved the shrimp!

I feel kind of the same way when I hear complaints about frankenfoods that are perfectly good things to eat. But whatever floats your boat. I'd still much rather have a hot pocket than haggis.

Souse is a little different. It is head cheese to which vinegar (and sometimes) peppers have been added.

Ugh! - A neighbor used to make souse for my Mom and Dad every New Year's. Just looking at it used to make me want to throw up!!! (And I didn't even know that it was Head Cheese; I was told that it was some part of the pig, but since it was white it looked raw to me and I wouldn't eat it!)

Comments about 'Head Cheese' are going more off the name than the food itself. In UK it is known as 'Brawn' or the posher 'Terrine'. Can be made with any meats really but in Lancashire (original home of the Haggis) it is made with a mixture of beef and pork (often pig cheeks or 'Chaps') roughly cut up after cooking and pressed in a mould filled up with an aspic jelly usually made from boiling pig's feet. A good food and allsorts of different foods can be layered in a brawn, boiled eggs, olives, up to your imagination.

In the American south, you can't have catfish without hushpuppies, little balls of cornmeal dough cooked in hot grease. (Catfish is often cooked outside, and supposedly someone created hushpuppies to throw to the hounds to keep them quiet when they smelled the fish cooking.) My MIL made the best ones ever with chopped green onions added to them. Another friend makes great ones using beer as the liquid and spicing them up with minced jalapenos. Serve them with plenty of ketchup.

20/20 easy dubs I hate all these foods because I am allergic to the letter H. So that is why my best friends are named Harry and Harold. So I can use the excuse I am sick of you guys because I actually could be. Also my favorite drug is probably Heroine because it gets me lit on the inside because my body starts to slowly rot away from the H being inside me

Head cheese = brawn in (much of) the UK. I always thought brawn was an odd name but head cheese! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Head_cheese
