I've never tried Spam. I just can't get past its similarity to deviled ham. When I was a kid, my dad LOVED Underwood deviled ham but my mother hated it. She'd buy him cans of it for lunch or snacking though. Just the smell of it grossed me out, as did her canned tamales. I can tolerate canned chicken to go into our hurricane box and have made a few decent meals with it, but just can't deal with canned beef or pork products. I'm not even that thrilled about out-of-the-panty canned crab anymore since we discovered the refrigerated kind.

As far as Spam being elegant, I know some people who would think a dinner like that would be elegant, just from the extra effort and presentation, and that it was done with the 2 of them in mind.

cabbage, potato, potatoes, recipe

Spam, cabbage & potatoes Don't overlook this even if you don't like spam! I can't stand it, but LOVE this recipe. My mom got it from a friend and we tried it and it has been something we eat 5-6 times a year since and love it every time. We tried this with ham and it just wasn't the same, for some reason the funkiness of the spam makes it. One can of spam, cubed fairly small One head of cabbage, chopped one small onion, diced 3lbs of potatoes, cubed 1 tsp Garlic powder Lowry's seasoned salt, to taste Freshly ground black pepper, to taste 2 tbsp olive oil 2 tbsp butter Start with the potatoes, you can either use raw or leftover cooked potatoes. Get them browning with the butter and olive oil over medium high heat in a large skillet or chef's pan and starting to get tender if they are raw. Add the onion and the spam, cook until potatoes and spam are nice and brown. Add the chopped cabbage, all of it, add the pepper and garlic powder and start with a couple teaspoons of the Lowry's seasoned salt, lower heat to medium, cover. After about 10 minutes stir and cover again for another 5-10 mins until the cabbage is well wilted and getting close to how you want it. Uncover and cook until any liquid is gone, taste and add more Lowry's until it tastes good to you (it takes a lot more of the Lowry's then you might think). Bread and butter goes well with this. Try it I think you will be surprised!:wink: 3 stars 1 reviews
