norge, on that link right under the pic of the spam is link titled "eat it". They have recipes there. my favorite way to eat spam is spam musubi. I got this from AlohaWorld.comOno Recipes.

Spam Musubi
Contributor: Margie
Recipe Number: 1051145728
Ingredients:
4 cups uncooked Japanese rice
4 cups water
5 sheets sushi-nori (seaweed)
1 can SPAM or SPAM Lite Furukaki
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup rice wine (mirin)
Cooking Instructions:
Cook rice in rice cooker. If no rice cooker is available, put rice and water into a large heavy saucepan. Heat water and rice until boiling then immediately turn down and simmer for approximately 20-25 mins. or until soft and water is evaporated. Boil soy sauce, sugar and rice wine. After it boils, turn off flame. Cut SPAM into 1/4 in. wide slices. Fry in pan. Soak fried SPAM in soy sauce mixture. Line a musubi maker with sushi nori so that both sides stick straight up. Spread cooked rice across bottom of musubi maker, on top of nori - 1/4 inch high. Sprinkle furukaki on top of rice. Place two pieces of SPAM in musubi maker on top of rice. SPAM should cover most of the length of the musubi maker. Spread more cooked rice on top of spam - 1/4 in. high. Sprinkle furukaki on top of rice. Fold over one side of the nori. Use musubi maker insert to press down on top of nori, rice and SPAM. Fold over other side of nori and press down. Remove musubi log from maker. Cut each log into four pieces.

Additional Comments:
Used to make these with my mom for our school lunches and dad's lunch, too and for after school snacks if get any leftovers.

wasabi, sounds complicated and I do not have those rolling things.. Spam sushi is what it sounds like. BTW I found the recipe icon, took me to Hormel web site.

In college I stir fried spam w/ tomatoes & green onions and ate over a bed of rice. If I had more $$ I would have used shrimp instead of spam.

There's a fastfood outlet in a major mall here called SPAM JAM. It offers spam in its many glorified manifestations: as a sandwich, omelette, with rice, etc. The outlet looks like a small Macdonalds. I keep passing by it but have never tried it. Maybe I should... Anyway, there's an idea for people out there looking for a business concept. :D

Alton would get his butt handed to him. He knows a lot about specific foods and their basic uses, but knowing about food and being able to put together 5 world class dishes in the span of an hour are two completely different things.

I hate to say it, but I'd have to agree that Alton would probably lose. Don't get me wrong, big AB fan, but I can't see him pulling off nice looking dishes. I think they would taste good, but I don't know if he could make them look fancy. That said, I would still LOVE to see AB compete! :D

hmm, you 2 make good points about ab. i guess we should all email him to encourage him to be in an iron chef battle. you never know how someone performs until they're actually on stage. ab has all the basic knowledge of tricks and techniques that would really help with odd ingredients, but might get mired down with a common ingredient, imo.

I don't think Alton could handle the time contraint. Does he have any professional culinary experience? Does anyone know? He just seems like a guy with a scientific background who is interested in food. Most people have a hard time making 2-3 relatively simple dishes in an hour. Unless Alton was really a chef or cook somewhere, I seriously doubt he could even come close to pulling it off. It's like asking a high school baseball coach to play in the Major Leagues. Sure he knows about the game, he can teach you the game, and he can probably play the game, sure. But can he play the game at the highest level?
