Spam - the kind you eat

Does anyone besides me think Spam is a food? I fry the Spam, put it on colby cheese, then grill the whole thing. I have a wonderful stringy grilled cheese and Spam sammich. How do you cook your Spam?

I don't use it very often, but it makes really good hash, believe it or not. Very simple with diced onion, carrot, bell pepper and potato, and fried crisp. Lowrd knows there's enough fat in the spam to do the job. My late husband loved it to use for breakfast with eggs on top.

I had some Spam several years ago. One of my buddies said how good it was fried and with mayo on a sandwich, so I gave it a shot. It was OK. I finished the can anyway.
Now fried ring bologna... mmmm

Once in a while....A spam sammich, right out of the can, or fried, or grilled, or with crackers is a treat!

I like to put it through a meat grinder or food processor with a few sweet pickles, then stir in just enough Miracle Whip to moisten it. One of the best sandwich spreads around! I'm not a huge Spam fan, but James and I love it that way.

Lived in Hawaii on and off for a decade. Spam was a staple, everyone (but us) loved it. Spam sushi (not kidding), spam/pineapple kabobs. Spam on noodles. Spam with scrambled eggs everywhere (not kidding, even at McD's). Spam everywhere. And I do mean everywhere. I threw a party here and made it a Hawaii themed party, and friends were absolutely amazed that spam was featured! No one who has ever lived in Hawaii would think of having a party without Spam. When we moved to the mainland, we visited Austin, MN. We were having a drink at a local thirst parlor, and the gal who was our bartender joked about it. She thought that the local teachers were lying or exaggerating or something when they told the kids that the local product, SPAM, was a huge hit in Hawaii. Jer and I joked, and had a good time about it. No, it really was (don't know if it still is) very, very popular in Hawaii when we lived there (in the 80s). I don't think we ever went anywhere there wasn't a spam dish.
