But if it is spiced ham than how is there turkey ham?

Regular Spam (& all it's different varieties, "Honey Roasted", etc.) is made from ground pork, which is seasoned & then formed into a small loaf - like some varieties of deli/luncheon meat. For the turkey Spam, they simply substitute ground turkey for the pork.

Originally SPAM was regular ham then they made a turkey version. Sort of like turkey bacon which is turkey that is seasoned, shaped and smoked like real bacon.

I know this thread is positively ancient, but I'm a mainlander with an affinity for Hawaiian-style Spam, so I thought I'd chime in.

I do it pretty simply. Slice thin, let marinate in Aloha Shoyu for half an hour, then cook in hot pan with a tiny bit of oil until crispy on the outside and browned.

Then I generally bust out my mold and make my Musubi! I like my Musubis with nori furkiake, the requisite nori binder, the requisite rice, and some diced/shredded kimchi on top. Nothing beats the combination of salty/fatty shoyu spam and briny/sour/spicy kimchi.

My mom used to bake it like a ham and she would cover it with a brwon sugar/yellow mustard glaze. It was good! I also like it fried crispy in slices. I haven't had SPAM in a long time. Now that it's just the two of us at home, I may start again. One can would be the perfect size for us.

I knew a guy in college that would eat two cans worth of Spam with like 3-4 scoops of white rice in one sitting. But this was the same guy that would eat 4 cans of Vienna sausage in one sitting also.

my mom used to make us spam sandwiches when i was a kid, brooklyn style.

that is the spam slices were lightly fried, then served on either rye with raw onions and spicy brown mustard, or on white bread, with mayo and iceberg lettuce.

i made a spam, onions, and mushroom omelette for dw recently, and she loved it thinking that it was taylor ham. i didn't bother to tell her the truth about the mystery meat.
