I grew up back in Ky and my grandpa always brought Spam with us fishing... cut part of the can up for us and use the other part for catfish bait... hum... didn’t learn a darned thing from that ironic lesson but I still eat it today...
I have always said catfish has good taste.

Good News! Unopened Spam lasts forever ( or almost ).

No, no sugar. Lots of salt but no sugar and low carb, that's why it's soooooooo good!

  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons honey mustard
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Directions
  • 1.In large skillet, brown SPAM® Classic until lightly browned. In large non-metal bowl, combine SPAM® Classic, broccoli, pasta, bell pepper, and onion; mix well.
  • 2.In small bowl, with wire whisk or fork, combine remaining ingredients; add to SPAM® mixture and mix well. Cover; refrigerate several hours or overnight.

In all seriousness, that is a good looking salad! The wife is out of town so I'm bacheloring it here and THAT is definitely on the menu for this weekend. I'm already thinking of another version I can do using Terriyaki Spam and a sesame oil dressing. Nice find!

That’s odd. The nutrition value says no sugar but the ingredients says sugar on the Spam website for the Spam Classic.

My Ol' Lady was born & raised in Japan. She's happa, reads & speaks (can write a bit), and has grown up with Spam being a highly valued & prized commodity. And indeed, it is. I've seen ornate wooden boxes lined with velvet and cut outs to hold 4 containers of Spam. She eats it several times throughout the month, and if we're anywhere near a Japanese center (used to go to Japan town in SF frequently when we lived in CA), she will get it for breakfast every time. It's part of her comfort food.

I can't wait to show her this thread. She'll read a few posts, look at me with that "see? I'm tellin' ya" look, and say "yeah? Lots' of people love Spam!" and then she'll rattle off something in Japanese, and I'll say "hi" (agreeing with her).

I like the stuff if it's sliced thin & fried like bacon.

I love spam!

Unfortunately I cant eat it anymore, having heart issues sucks.

1 slice of spam is more than my daily intake of sodium now.

I loved slicing them thin, frying em on the cast iron and then cracking an egg around them when they're half done.
Then stuff them into a tortilla.
Great for camping.
