Should that be cut with or against the grain?

I julienned some Spam one day, fried it up until it was crispy and used it in a frittata. It tasted delicious, and would be good in a lot of things prepared that way (scalloped potatoes, rice dishes, pizza, salad or baked potato topping, pasta).
I have been buying Spam Lite for several years, so I don't feel so guilty about eating it. It has less fat and sodium, but you won't miss it.

Hmmm...I may have a fried Spam and cheese sandwich with a big slice of tomato on it for supper tonight.

That's nuts. I never get through more than 2-3 slices at a time, too much salty porky-ness. I hit the same wall with Longanisa, I can't power through more than about 2-3 links in a sitting.

I can make a can disappear in 10 minutes flat!
(probably not something to be proud of tho...)

I wonder if PETA is going to write a letter addressing the entire state of Hawaii

My best Spam story is when I was in middle school, (7th grade) and several of us guys decided to cut school for the day. We ended up hanging in the woods, miserable because we were bored, eating spam that we heated over a wood fire on tree branch sticks....

When I was growing up, my mother would slice Spam about 1/2 inch thick, dip in egg and milk then cracker crumbs, fry till brown. That was the meat for dinner (sometimes). My older sister (rip) and I would eat it sliced, room temperature on white bread with mustard. Oh, we would get in trouble for making a sandwiches out of what was to be the meat for a meal for the whole family.
I will now have to buy some payday and try it with mircle whip and Sweet Relish.
