I've decided to eat a can of spam I found in the cabinet... I haven't been shopping in a while so I have to be creative. Any suggestions on how to make my can of Spam as enjoyable as possible?

slice it, fry it, top with cheese of your choosing. spam sandwiches.

LOL!

For some reason the saying about not being able to polish a turd keeps going through my head...

I mean I like Spam and all, but...

Musubi (sp?) is pretty awesome.


Slice of spam, wrapped in sticky rice and seaweed - kind of like a giant roll. Great for a lunch on the go.

well my chef buddy eats his blackened, or as I say burned. The smoke was coming off so bad after he was thru frying/burning it I had to put the pan outside, I just fry it a little.

My mom took spam, cheese, pickles, ketchup and ground it all together, put it on a hamburger bun, and then broiled it in the oven until the browned. It was actually really good.

Here's something from my area, where some might argue it's the state food. Some folks around here won't go a day without it. Don't ask me why. As for the recipe, I've never tried it myself, but I suppose you could substitute a can of mushroom soup for the sauce.

Mushroom Sauce
From the Kitchen of: Nathan Aweau, Musician

3 mushrooms
2 Tbs. butter or margarine
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
2 Tbs. flour
1 c. chicken or beef broth
3/4 c. crème
2 cloves garlic

Cut mushrooms into small pieces. In a pan, melt the butter or margarine and add the mushrooms. Add the salt & pepper and stir. Let it simmer for about a minute then sprinkle the flour in and stir. Pour in the chicken or beef broth and crème. Add the garlic, stir and let it simmer. After about two minutes, put 1/3 of the sauce into another pan. 1/3 of the sauce will be used in the Tuna Casserole "Ala Nathan" recipe and the remaining 2/3 will be used in the Spam Spectacular recipe (below).


1 small potato
1 1/2 Tbs. butter
1 can spam
Peel and slice potato into slices no more than 1/4" thick. Line the bottom of an oven safe bowl with the potatoes. Add the butter on top. Slice spam as desired and add in the bowl. Add the remaining 2/3 of the mushroom sauce, stir a little and place into a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. Take out and stir, return to oven for about 25 minutes more or until brown. Take out of the oven and serve.

Cut it up into cubes and put it in your macaroni and cheese. That's what I'm having for dinner.

Then top it with Miracle Whip!!!

Ahhh, bachelor living!

you know...if I had seaweed and pineapple and mac and cheese and pickles, some BBQ and ketchup... I wouldn't be eating spam... sounds like sliced, fried and topped with processed swiss cheese is the winner. Off to dinner!

Never ate that crap. But i did eat leftover porkchops from last sunday. 5 hours ago.

Scraped off the fat/bacterial soup. Popped it in the microwave along with some some 3min noodles. Cooked up some ham-cheese pasta sauce. . Added LOTS of cayenne pepper. Tasted good

diced spam scrambled w/ eggs

Heathier if you:

a. use only 1-2 yolks, and the whites of several other eggs (make a 7 egg batch w/o insane cholesterol)
b. Use Spam (tm) Lite


Extra points for A-1 sauce

I cant believe no one mentioned Spam and eggs! cube it...fry it...throw in some eggs..scramble it up...serve and enjoy!

Grind up spam and cheddar cheese
Add a little pickle relish

Mix thoroughly

Smear a nice layer of the "mix" onto open faced hamburge buns (I prefer the Potatoe buns for this receipe)

Place on cookie sheet open faced

Put in oven until buns are crispy and cheese melts.

1.) Open can

2.) Dump in trash

3.) Cook something else

By request....

The offending substance:



Swiss cheese and black olives added... too much miracle whip



It wasn't very tasty... I think I'll fix a toaster strudel. Man, I need a wife or a cook or something.

And to top it all off, finger dents. SPAM deserves nothing less than that personal touch.

I hate SPAM. just what does SPAM stand for anyway? I guarantee I'm going to be eating the shit saturday morning at drill for breakfast chow, along with 2 month shelf life government issue bread...

SICK!

I used to just lightly fry a slice and eat it straight. Bread will only dilute the Spammy goodness.

No discussion of Spam can go without a Spam-ku:

Great picture on the front page of the paper. Nice to see that your local news believes in showing the regular folks out there what criminals look like.

All I can say is....



Sorry, but that picture looked absolutely disgusting. Years ago I would have probably eaten something like that but I've cleaned up my act and feel much better for it. SPAM is disgusting, loaded with salt, fat, and unmentionables.
Link Posted: 10/6/2005 6:53:59 PM EDT
Pan fried is OK, but I prefer mine grilled.. almost to the point of burnt.

(crispy on the outside, IOW)

Fried gets too greasy. If I pan fry, I've gotta let it sit on a paper towel for a minute or three...

Put it on bread, a slice of cheese... yum!

ShoulderPork and hAM. Saw it on the food channel.

I always thought 'SPAM' was short for 'spiced ham.'

Here's another good 'perp walk' shot. He's mad because he's about to start a 30 month sentence for being stupid.

Spam fried with onions, on dry white toast.

really good in cheddar and potato soup.

You screwed up with the black olives, me thinks.
Link Posted: 10/7/2005 3:00:44 AM EDT
Fried, just short of burnt.
Soak up the grease in paper towells for a few..
With eggs.. by itself.. doesn't matter.

Spam is 100% pork shoulder meat. IIRC from a History channel show I caught last year.


Some of my fondest memories from childhood involve sneaking out in the middle of the night with a can of spam and an old skillet and heading back to the pond for a late night feast.

Scene: A cafe. One table is occupied by a group of Vikings wearing horned helmets. Whenever the word "spam" is repeated, they begin singing and/or chanting. A man and his wife enter. The man is played by Eric Idle, the wife is played by Graham Chapman (in drag), and the waitress is played by Terry Jones, also in drag.
Man: You sit here, dear.
Wife: All right.
Man: Morning!
Waitress: Morning!
Man: Well, what've you got?
Waitress: Well, there's egg and bacon; egg sausage and bacon; egg and spam; egg bacon and spam; egg bacon sausage and spam; spam bacon sausage and spam; spam egg spam spam bacon and spam; spam sausage spam spam bacon spam tomato and spam;
Vikings: Spam spam spam spam...
Waitress: ...spam spam spam egg and spam; spam spam spam spam spam spam baked beans spam spam spam...
Vikings: Spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam!
Waitress: ...or Lobster Thermidor a Crevette with a mornay sauce served in a Provencale manner with shallots and aubergines garnished with truffle pate, brandy and with a fried egg on top and spam.
Wife: Have you got anything without spam?
Waitress: Well, there's spam egg sausage and spam, that's not got much spam in it.
Wife: I don't want ANY spam!
Man: Why can't she have egg bacon spam and sausage?
Wife: THAT'S got spam in it!
Man: Hasn't got as much spam in it as spam egg sausage and spam, has it?
Vikings: Spam spam spam spam... (Crescendo through next few lines...)
Wife: Could you do the egg bacon spam and sausage without the spam then?
Waitress: Urgghh!
Wife: What do you mean 'Urgghh'? I don't like spam!
Vikings: Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!
Waitress: Shut up!
Vikings: Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!
Waitress: Shut up! (Vikings stop) Bloody Vikings! You can't have egg bacon spam and sausage without the spam.
Wife: I don't like spam!
Man: Sshh, dear, don't cause a fuss. I'll have your spam. I love it. I'm having spam spam spam spam spam spam spam beaked beans spam spam spam and spam!
Vikings: Spam spam spam spam. Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!
Waitress: Shut up!! Baked beans are off.
Man: Well could I have her spam instead of the baked beans then?
Waitress: You mean spam spam spam spam spam spam... (but it is too late and the Vikings drown her words)
Vikings: Spam spam spam spam. Lovely spam! Wonderful spam! Spam spa-a-a-a-a-am spam spa-a-a-a-a-am spam. Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Spam spam spam spam!

SPAM rules!

I do get the low sodium variety, not because I'm some kind of diet pussy, regular is just too salty for me!

I like to fry it and eat it with eggs, or fry it and put it on white bread or saltines with Plochman's yellow mustard. That's some fine eatin right thare.






well, I can't find an image of Home Pride white bread, but that's what I put it on!

My kitchen is never without one. If i get fed up with the usual fare, or am too lazy to cook something up, I just fry some Spam. Mmmmmmmm. Extreme comfort food.
