Alright a few days after we returned home from evacuating from Hurricane Ike, my neighbor, very kindly gave me and my boys a bag of groceries that he scrounged up at the grocery store (there was nothing at the stores when they first opened up again) and it included a can of spam.

Now I don't remember ever eating this stuff. I think my Grandmother may of forced me to try it when I was a child but I have never willingly ate the stuff.
Anyways, now I have a can of the stuff, what do I do with it?

Does anyone have any recipes for it that maybe doesn't taste like canned spam? Anything tried and true. I googled it and found many but has anyone ever actually made anything with it? Or should I just donate this one lonely can to someone who needs it more than I.

Make it into breakfast sandwich. Slice it kind of thin ad fry it up in a skillet. No need to add any oil or salt, it has enough of both. Make sure it's nicely crispy on the outside. Put in on a toasted English muffin, top with fried egg and a slice of cheese, put the top of the muffin.

My kids are half Japanese(my side, hubby's from St. Paul) so they eat things like teriyaki Spam and scrambled eggs over rice.

YUM! Spam is good stuff. Pork shoulder and ham. When I first lived on my own, I baked Spam dotted with a few cloves and coated with a dark brown sugar, water and mustard glaze until hot. You can make cross cut shallow slices on its surface, just like a ham. It's already fully cooked. A great friend pleaser when served with taters and biscuits

Breaded with panko, fried and eaten in a sandwich of white bread with the Japanese Tonkatsu sauce if you can get it....

Tonkatsu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Spam has its own website of dishes too...

You can always donate it.

At a Hawaiian grill-type place, I've ordered spam masubi before. It's basically Spam and rice wrapped in seeweed. My husband can't stand it but I thought it was kinda good.

Another thing I like to do with Spam is this..Fry up Spam slices, nice and crispy. Put that on top of a slice of toast, hot baked beans over that and then top it with fried egg. Yummy!!

Try this: spread each side with mustard, roll in crunched corn flakes and bake it - it's actually very tasty!
