Luncheon meat

srr | Jan 16, 2007 04:10 PM

I just got back from visiting my husband's family in New Orleans and they had a sliced deli meat called simply "Luncheon meat." Lighter in color than salami. Speckled with fat, so it's not bologna. I'd put it medium on the salty scale. No, it is not Spam or any of it's off-brands. The slices are bigger and softer than that, even when Spam is sliced thin. (I know...I happen to like Spam) Anyone know if there is another name for this stuff? We live in San Francisco and I have never heard of this stuff or seen it. TIA
