Spam N Cheese
FTA: "Does anyone really know what Spam is exactly? Well I do. Spam was created for the military during WWII in 1937. Yes, it's military meat - canned cooked meat made by the Hormel Foods Corporation in Austin Minnesota. I know this, because I've seen their plant - and the air around it smells like Spam.
Spam's basic ingredients are pork, with ham meat added, salt, water, modified potato starch as a binder, sugar, and sodium nitrite as a preservative. Natural gelatin is formed during cooking to give it that Spam shape."
Above is an actual recipe from the '70s.
We have Spam in our garage pantry - Mr. Cube bought it- and yes, I have seen him eat it fried and incorporated into an omelet.
All I can say is, I'll eat it if I'm in survival mode.
