Now what do I do with it???
Breakfast: Fried Spam & eggs or diced, cooked with onions & scrambled eggs & put into a flour tortilla for a breakfast burrito.
Lunch or dinner: stir-fried rice w/Spam.
Spam stew - saute cubed Spam with diced onion & garlic. Add tomato sauce, water to make a soup and potatoes. When potatoes are nearly cooked, add string beans or mixed veggies
Dinner: Saute Spam with sliced celery, bell peppers, onions, and whatever other stir-fry style veggies you'd like, add chopped olives, serve with pasta topped with cashews or pine-nuts. Add Parmesan cheese if you'd like
For a Hawaiian style treat, saute diced Spam with sliced onions, bell peppers, sliced carrots. Cover the pan when not stirring, to keep liquid.Add pineapple & a little brown sugar. Thicken the broth with about a cup of water with a tablespoon of low-sodium soy sauce, about a tablespoon of vinegar and some corn starch. Serve on rice. Garnish with cashews, pistachios or peanuts.
Spam can be sliced cold and made into sandwiches, too.
I LOVE Spam and I have made almost as many "Hate Spam" converts as I have "Hate Cats" converts
