Every once in awhile I will make a SPAM sandwich. I do have one casserole recipe that is made with SPAM. But that is about my limit of eating SPAM. Those of you who don't like SPAM can substitute ham.

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 slices over the broccoli. Pour remaining sauce over the top. Bake at 425º for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly.

lol wasabi - I like your idea!!!

The reason I say no spam forum is because it's just another - sort of - meat. Probably more pork than anything or maybe totally pork "products".

If we can't get a Tips and Techniques forum do you really think we'd stand a chance at a spam forum???? LOL Next thing you know those craxy people in England would want a Haggis forum (hey kyles!!!!)
