I have to admit, I never really took to SPAM in all those Hawaii years. But in subsequent years, I would never dream of a Hawaii themed party without SPAM. yes, the musubi (or whatever) was not delicate, it was a hand full of food. A few of them would be lunch for my Hawaiian co-workers.

Another thing that was popular I cannot remember the name for. They were steamed Chinese white buns stuffed with a dyed red pork stuffing, sometimes stamped with Chinese letters on top. We used to get someone to go get a few dozen of them for lunch. I'll remember what they are called at 3 a.m. and come back on to tell you!

Ze we have a bit of a dinner party circuit with friends that are all good cooks who are very confident turning out set piece classics, so we decided to spice the menu's up and the conversation with fun.
Spamoschnitzel Cordon Bleu, cut two thin slices of spam sandwich a slice of Swiss cheese and prosciutto between, flour, eeg wash, breadcrumb and fry.
Spamonara sub small cubes of fried spam for the bacon.
Spam Wellington, fry your block of spam crispy let it cool, make a mushroom duxelle, lay you puff pastry flat, put slices of prosciutto in the middle, spread the duxelle on them, put the block of spam on it and wrap with the prosciutto then the puff eggwash and bake.
Subbing spam in dimsum's like Sui Mai War Tip or Char Sui Bao is good to.

I think I will write a book A 1000 and 1 ways with Spam" by Spamson and Delia.

Sorry, but in my opinion, Spam in the can is as bad as email spam, if not worse! Canned Spam was introduced in Hawaii and the Philippines during WWII by the American military. At that time, it did serve a purpose to help people survive during the war. I know people who grew up on Spam in the 1940s and 1950s who use it on a regular basis -- habits die hard. I remember that my mother bought a can or two of it when I was a kid (early 1950s) and that was it -- even the dog walked away from it! Maybe it has improved by now -- less fat and salt, but I think I'll pass on trying it again. I love the idea of a book on 1000 ways to use Spam-- too funny!!

Spam and eggs was a classic for breakfast for the first morning of backpacking trips in my single days. You just didn't want to be the poor schmuck who got stuck packing in the eggs, JIC they didn't quite make it. I think my personal favorite though is just fried spam on white bread with miracle whip. One of about 3 things I actually like with white bread.
Yum - - I'm the only one here who likes Spam and mircle whip - so it's mine, all mine!

General T'sp spamo, cube the spam dip in a batter of beaten eggwhite and cornflour, deep fry and drain.
Heat you wok and fry fine slices of onion, garlic,ginger and chili, add soft brown sugar, light soy, black vinegar, chicken stock, reduce till you get coating sauce toss in you spamo.

Spamtte, marinade cubes of spam in honey, soy, Tabasco and crushed garlic, (don't add chili as it will overpower the delicate flavor of the spam) thread onto skewers and grill. I would use the traditional soaked bamboo skewer for authenticity but metal will do.

Sauce, heat a big blob of Crunchy peanut butter in a pan, add crushed garlic, lime juice, soy and chopped coriander leaves.

Spamorizo, mash the spam being careful not to destroy it integral texture, add smoked hot paprika, crushed garlic and a bit of cumin powder. Leave in your fridge for 24 hrs, shape into patties and fry.

Spamolentta de Casa de bolas, cook polenta let it cool a little, add egg yolks, butter, lots of grated parm/reg and a glug of cream, mix then add a lot of fried cubes of spam, pour into a non stick loaf tin and chill for 24 hrs. Slice deep fry, griddle or grill on the bbq, serve with a poached egg on top.

I'm with you, I like an occasional spam and Miracle Whip sandwich.

Oh, and ShellyCooks, before Spam made it to Hawaii and the Philippines during WWII by the American military, It went onto the general market in 1937 by Hormel Foods of Iowa. During the early war, it went to Europe long before it ever went to the Pacific. Just a bit of Spam history for you...

And I hope that everyone realizes that Spam is NOT leftover bits and pieces of other pork products. It is only braised pork shoulder (Boston Butt), which isn't a bad cut of meat.

You're on, Kathleen... And we could also watch the new Hawaii Five O.....a great show with incredible photography of Hawaii.


I had no idea Spam came in so many varieties now days. I'd love to find some of them in the stores. Check it out.

They're even packaged and sold in individual slices, like a cut of gourmet meat.
