Spam makes a good hash for "Hash & Eggs". Next time you have leftover roasted veggies, dice them up with some diced Spam and fry.

When we were kids my mum would make a pancake type batter, dip the spam in it and shallow fry it. We would have it with something like baked beans and mashed potatoes. Just remember, it is what it is, a cheap, nutritious comfort food that fed a generation when times were tough, maybe not that healthy by today's standards but it supplies a meal, you won't go hungry and it will taste OK but whatever you do.............it's still Spam! Go the whole way and have it with french fries on the side, why not??

All Spam is, a smoked picnic shoulder shredded. Then it is packed with the natural gelatin.

I like to fry it in butter and make a sandwich with inon and mustard. Probably have one of these once a year, but it is good.

We make fried rice a lot, I like the sound of adding spam, in place of bacon maybe

How about some Spam, a slice of pineapple and dipped in French's finely crushed Onions. Or a slice of Spam, a ring of pineapple between two slices of bread and dipped in eggs. Hawaiian French Toast?

Anyone else have an idea for Spam?

Spam was on sale. 3 cans for $5.00. I couldn't pass it up.

I haven't had it for at least 30 years and was surprised to see it comes in so many varieties.

I got Turkey Spam, Bacon Spam, and Spam Classic.

Don't know when I'm going to use it because I kind of see it as an emergency stash but I'm going to keep an eye on this thread and the good ideas it has.

I have been looking at the Spam website, I never knew how many lovely recipes they had!

I have found one we are certainly trying next week Cauliflower au Gratin, looks lovely!
