can't be wrong!!!

Here's what's funny: when I was growing up, Spam was considered a "processed" food...a "mystery meat", if you will. But what's in it? Pork, salt, a bit of potato starch to hold it all together, and a little nitrate to preserve the color.

You'll get more chemicals, handling and processing if you buy what LOOKS like bacon at Walmart- or any other store, for that matter.

Like other former nutritional "ills" such as coffee and real butter, Spam is enjoying a renaissance...an honest food, conveniently preserved and packaged, and wholly without pretense.

Enjoy!

A stop in a grocery store will show you a couple of types of spam.
I've seen Spam Light, which I expected to be an empty can LOL, and Turkey Spam. Also IIRC there were several other types/flavors that I can't remember the names of. All where labeled Spam.

Turkey Spam? Spam LIGHT????

Now, that's just wrong.
I hope no dedicated Spamlover among us will stoop to eating such....I don't even know what to call it!

I haven't found this....still looking. My Mother used to cube a can of spam add cannjed peas, chow mein noodles and bake. I haven't tried it yet, because they don't give spam away anymore. I'm wondering if it was mushroom soup added to it. Recipe or any suggestions?


My mother liked to use chow mein noodles, too- the dry ones, right? I remember them in/on more than one casserole.


I've never heard of your Mother's "Spam" combination, but it sent me looking around for a recipe...

I didn't find a hot dish, but did come across this one for a salad...

I think the thing I like best about it is the NAME: "GARBAGE SALAD". How great is that?
Here's the recipe:

GARBAGE SALAD
1 can Spam, cut in small cubes
1 sm. jar green olives, sliced
1 can ripe olives, sliced
1 sm. onion, chopped
1/4 c. chopped celery
1 sm. carrot, grated
1/2 green pepper, chopped fine
4 hard boiled eggs, chopped coarse
Chow mein noodles
Put all ingredients together, except noodles, with enough mayonnaise to moisten well. Just before serving, add 1 small bag chow mein noodles, slightly crushed. Mix well.


Spam appetit!

Agreed. The main ingredient in traditional Spam is pork shoulder. I find the traditional Spam very salty so I like the low salt version. The wife recently bought Spam "lite" which also contains chicken I believe. Tasted very similar.
