My mom used to make salmon patties. Not my favorite. Salmon is still not my favored fish. I can eat it but prefer others.

In thinking back, hunting and fishing was our poverty meal, just didn't know it at the time.

Pinto beans with ketchup and maple syrup.  It is a meal on its own.  It can be made better with a side dish of corn bread, tortillas or rice.  It is fit for king if you add some hamburger or cut up hotdogs.

   On my last overseas assignment in Guinea in west Africa it was common to see what looked like a pot of pinto beans cooking over an open fire and the lady would be slicing open a local hoagie looking roll and filling it with the beans and selling them as sandwiches. I never tried them but they sure looked tasty.

I cannot say that I have gone hungry too often, and I could provide a picture to prove it.  My Grandfather used to eat ham and beans, fried bologna sandwiches, or cans of sardines growing up poor in the 20s and 30s.  He would put the beans over cornbread and eat so much everytime.  We would all just wait for him to complain that he ate too much and fall asleep in the recliner.  Good memories.

I've never had a bean sandwich, but pinto beans are best on their third or fourth day so I can see how the leftovers could be good on a sandwich.

Never had a bean sandwich, but I guess it's not much different from a bean burrito. Guess I've eaten plenty of open faced bean sandwiches though. Bread smeared with mayo and beans ladled on.

Just reread the thread and I am drooling on SOME of the posts but not all.
I had a good number of the meals posted here when growing up but never considered for a minute that we were poverty stricken.
I recall when I was working in western   VA in 1959 or 60 I had a young fellow working for me that said they often had poke (pork) and grits for supper.
He said That meant poke your feet under the table and grit your teeth.

I remember working in Forestry School measuring research plots for a Professor to make some money to live on.  I was working with another student, and we would take a break for lunch.  I would take beef round steak and cook it and slice it very thin to make sandwiches.  My work partner always said that he wished that he could afford to eat steak.  The thing was, that round steak cooked and sliced thin was cheaper than the processed lunch meat that he made his sandwiches out of :).  This was 1975, and that round steak was a whole lot cheaper than it is today.

We had cheesesteak sandwiches last night from venison, sliced off from one of the smaller leg muscles.  If it was garden season my only cost woulda been bread and cheese.  The peppers were excellent this fall.  Will do a lot of onions come spring. They go with everything.

I buy the boxes of spam individuals.  24 in a box.  We had this as a meal when my son and I were hiking at Philmont scout ranch.  I carry a few in my car in case I would have car trouble or get hungry out working in the country.  My dad was a truck driver and he told me(right or wrong) not to give cash to people who are asking for handouts.  He told me of a story of a man running up to his truck in a truck stop parking lot asking for a dollar for a cup of coffee.  My dad offered to buy him a cup and some breakfast but the man refused.  My dad was a military policeman and little did the guy know, but a gun was pointed at his belly since he ran a hundred yards strait for my dads truck and jumped up on the step.  My dad told me if the man insisted on cash, then he must of wanted it for something other than food.  So now I offer people along the street with signs of home-less-ness,  a few spam singles.  A bit off topic but made me think of my Dad.  Lost him and mom 10 years ago and still miss them.

In college I would buy cheap store brand chicken pot pies, 5 for a dollar.  pop that in the oven, and make some white rice.  dump the pot pie on top of the rice.  Not bad and pretty cheap.

   Never tried them over rice but I loved the little cheap pot pies you mention. Turkey was my favorite then chicken and if nothing else left I'd eat the beef ones.

If I was real hungry, I would make 2, but still ate a meal for less than a dollar
