Well, my family is. Several times a week. With the outrageously rising prices of gas, food, and just about everything else, whaddya gonna do? Here's my favorite for work lunches:

Cold Spam Sandwich

Ingredients:
2 slices Wonder Bread white (day old ok)
2 slices Spam
1-2 slices American cheese
1 T margarine
Tomato slices*
Lettuce*

Directions:
Give one side of each of the slices of bread a light smear of margarine. Put in Spam and cheese, and top with whatever else you deem proper. *Nice touch in season, add a pickle slice too if or when you can.

Anybody else have any favorite SPAM recipes? Thanks!

Couldn't agree more...fry it up, and put on your favorite bread/roll...add some cheese, and wait for the coronary..

My mother ate quite a bit of it in the 50's - her dad ran off and left them (my grandmother and 4 kids) - not a lot of money to live on, so things like this became a staple - not fun, maybe, but certainly filling and provided some nutritional value. This helped fill in the gaps between the days that they ate ketchup sandwiches - compared to that, the SPAM was quite tasty.

I am happy to say that while I've spent my time living off Ramen noodles, bologna, mac & cheese, and PB...I have yet to resort to Spam. I can only pray our situation never gets so dire.

I've only had it a handful of times, but I don't think it's that bad. If you fry it with eggs, it's awesome!

I think it's more the idea of potted meat - I just can't do it! (Yeah, yeah - I know...nobody needs to point out the fact that I'll eat bologna and hot dogs/sausage compared to potted meat. I can't explain it - it just is.)

I will say the Spam jelly is gross, but just scrape it off, slice and fry, and you are good to go... it is great in mac n cheese too...

A friend of mine had a boyfriend that made spam stir fry that she swears was excellent.

If anyone cares to come and visit..you could visit the spam museum.

We have a festival here called "SPAMARAMA" every year honoring SPAM.

It has all kinds of booths with dishes made with SPAM, a SPAM Ball where they crown a SPAM Queen, a SPAM toss contest and more.

WE used to eat in on Boy Scout campouts. We would make for breakfast with scrambled eggs in a dutch oven for a one-pot meal. We preferred the SPAM because it needed no refrigeration - cooler space was always at a premium.

Haven't had spam since then.
