You just said that because you've been missing James so much. You're not thinking clearly.

So now of course, with all this talk about Spam, & the chilly (by comparison) temps we had here this morning (41), I just had to crack open a can of turkey Spam & fry it up with some eggs for this morning's breakfast!!!

You know, I've found that there doesn't seem to be a lot of quality control as far as the saltiness goes - regardless of the type of Spam (regular, turkey, honey-roasted, etc.).

We went off turkey Spam for awhile because we had a can that was uber-salty. Then tried it again several months later & it was terrific. I've had the same experience with regular Spam. If it happens again, I'll contact Hormel. At the very least I'll probably end up with some coupons for free Spam - lol!!!

Turkey spam? Would that be lower in calories? I hardly ever eat spam because it is a little high in fat. But I love to treat myself once in awhile. I like toasting bread, mayo, and a slice of cold spam. Perfect!!!

Turkey Spam

Yes - it definitely is. I recently used up my last can on egg, cheddar, & turkey Spam breakfast sandwiches this morning (otherwise I'd give you the particulars here), & can definitely tell you that it's delicious. In fact, I'm sure one of the reason's the Spam folks came out with turkey Spam was to appeal to folks on low fat &/or low sodium diets.

Not as salty as regular Spam, but just as tasty - at least in my (& husband's) opinion. Give it a try - what have you got to lose?

Could anyone tell me what exactly is spam made from? I have never had it, or any kind of canned meat for that matter. Is it really meat? Please excuse my ignorance!
