That was always my favorite sandwich spread and now it is James' also. I like mine with Miracle Whip and dill pickles.

I like to make ham and beans now and then, but being extremely short on money I have made it with Spam (I cube it and cook the cubes until the outsides are crisp, then add it toward the end) and it wasn't bad at all.

At the Renaissance Festival last year in Charlotte, they were giving out Spam samples and selling Spam sandwiches!

I've never tried it ground up like a potted meat type of spread. Do you heat this up at all? I can't wait to tell my boys about this!

No, I just take it out of the can and grind it up. Of course, it's refrigerated after I make it into Spam salad.

Thanks Katie. But there won't be any left over to put in my fridge - my sons are bottomless pits!

They must be teenagers. When our 4 sons were teenagers, I almost considered having a secretary's chair available by the refrigerator so they could just open the door and roll up with their forks and have at it.

We ate a lot of it in college. Slice 1/8" thick, fried in a HOT skillet so it's really crispy. Served it with Big John Beans....

tasty!!!

It makes a great sandwich with horseradish and a little mustard.

Katie - my mom used to combine canned ham and - oh, I bet they don't make it anymore - it was a jarred pineapple spread. It was deeelish. I bet I could grind the Spam and make it like you said but add some pineapple cream cheese? We just spread it on crackers - it was very 50's - so much before my time!

Yeah, I think adding the pineapple cream cheese spread would be delish.

About "so much before your time."..................

Love fried spam and egg sammiches.... I tend to cook my spam just a tad darker than what you have pictured. As a child, it was something that occupied our food pantry on a regular basis. I use an old cheese slicer to slice my spam so they are nice even slices every time!
