and fried it up in a pan. With eggs. It actually comes in these little one serving packets too. I didn't use the whole thing. I got regular Spam because I wanted to live the true Spam experience.
It's really OK, somewhat salty, so a little goes a long way. I can see using it in a pasta dish with peas.

I see my culinary horizons expanding as I type this...

I remember it as a kid and Mom would serve it on occasion. For me there is the nostalgic appeal but in reality I rarely eat it. McDonald serves it and Portuguese sausage with their breakfast menu.

Your local's culinary journey begins; pretty soon you’ll forget all about sushi…

My mom used to fry it with brown sugar - yummm. I forgot that until I started reading about Spam on this board. She probably fried it in butter too........

Frying spam in butter? OMG! That's a lot like frying lard in butter. Probably flavorful, though.

Sounds like a Paula Deen recipe.

I guess Spam is very popular for remote places. I used to live in Siberia, there was not much to choose from in local market, and one of most popular items was Spam. Sorry, I can't force myself eat now.

Spam is very popular in Hawaii from WW2 when it was almost the only thing to eat and the Hawaiians loved it so it turned into a staple of food.

shortly before moving to hawaii two weeks ago and living on the northern california coast, my buddy, who worked for SE Rykoff, a major restaurant supplier, had an unexpected windfall. he had evidently ordered a case of spam for some place in Half Moon Bay, and had inadvertantly written 100 rather than 1 on the order form. The extra 99 cases of Spam, some 2000 cans plus, ended up at our house, just above the beach, in Moss Beach. After much careful thought, occaisonal argument, and the liberal application of various substances, we concluded that the best use for the 2000 plus cans of Spam would be to erect a "room divider" in the living room, a "Not so Great Wall of Spam" as it were. The divider was built, with all the cans facing in the same direction. Our house was prone to be the focal point of parties every now and then, normally any day of the week ending in the letter "Y' was more than due justification for celebration, and God knows how many people strayed in and out of that house during the time that the "Not so Great Wall of Spam" stood. However, during its memorable reign, I don't recall one can of Spam to ever have gone missing. Wonder why that was? Some sort of misplaced reverance no doubt, perhaps fear of retribution from the much feared Spamunists, deep rooted pre-cognizant uncertainty concerning Spamicide? Not sure,, after all, it was two weeks ago.......

Aloha and,, uuuurrrrpppp,, scuze me,,, spamamaluna

You should have sent the Spam people a photo of the "room divider". I bet they would have sent you some more.

I don't really know why my mom gave us spam, maybe Wyoming counted as a remote area in the 1960's? Maybe because there were 6 kids and spam was cheap? Because my parents were WWII vets? Maybe because my dad built a bomb shelter in the basement and spam and honey were staples stocked in there. Of course that was never put into use (except to play in) and over time we ate all the supplies.

I would eat spam again if it was fried with brown sugar...maybe butter too, why not?
