Spam Casserole

I take about 4 cups of cooked white rice, grate a can of spam, mix with a diced onion, 2 beaten eggs and about 2 cups of sharp chedder cheese with preffered seasonings. Put in buttered casserole dish and bake in 350 degree oven for about half hour. Take out of oven and let it rest. Its real tasty and even people who say they don't like spam love it.

The donkey engine could move itself through the forest by using its steam power and winch to skid the donkey to a new location.

Bang,

Here is a recipe for you for Spam. My mom used to cook this when I was a kid.

Spam Divan Bake

1 lb. broccoli florets
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon dry mustard
1½ cups milk
1 – 12 oz. can Spam, sliced
4 cheese slices or 4 oz. shredded cheddar cheese

Cook broccoli in a small amount of boiling salted water. Melt butter. Blend together flour, onion powder, and dry mustard. Stir in milk. Cook over medium heat, stir until mixture thickens and boils. Add cheese and stir until cheese melts. Arrange broccoli in a single layer in buttered 12”x8” baking dish. Pour half of the sauce over broccoli. Overlap Spam sliced over the broccoli. Pour remaining sauce over the top. Bake at 425º for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly

Forgive the resurrection, but I KNOW Bang and others will be interested:

At this VERY MOMENT at the Texas State Fair in Dallas, a highly experienced panel of judges are deciding the winners of this year's National Best SPAM Recipe Competition! And we're not alone -- apparently every state fair has a similar quest! (The things you learn from public radio...!)

Here's a link to a 2004 Kids Chef winner from California, entitled "Sponge Bob SPAM Pops".....
