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.

Ugh.

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.

Hubby loves spam. He eats it all the time. I'm with you. I'll only eat it in survival mode.

Have a fabulous day. ♥

I love Spam fried sandwiches. Thinly sliced, crisply fried, white bread (not good), and lots of lettuce and mayo. Spam is actually quite a high quality product and should not be scorned. It's lower cost competitor, Treet, not so much.

I'll eat in survival mode once I run out of Dinty Moore Beef Stew.

I like spam (untried) sandwiches. Ideally it's on dark bread: squaw or pumpernickel, add some hot mustard. I've prepared sandwiches like that for hunting trips and the like when I need a hearty sandwich in my pocket. Oddly enough, I never ate it in the military, but my father said that was the primary meat of the Navy when he served in forward areas on ships in combat.

It has a lot of salt in it, but other than that, I think that it's good enough.

Sorry a typo - unfried.

And, of course, it's exceptionally popular in Hawaii.
Another favorite of theirs is Obama.
And Senator Maizie Horono.

There's nothing technically wrong with it, i just don't like the idea of eating unknown "parts." Yes, Sweetie used to eat it fried or on a sandwich, but he decided he's not too keen on "parts" either and gave it up.

Sandee: It's all about taste.

Kid: I used to love Dinty Moore Beef Stew until I ate it recently and I found it too salty to finish.

LL: Lol. OK, I give you credit for making Spam SOUND the greatest in a sandwich award.

Ed Bonderenka: I think Hawaii has bad taste... just saying.

Messymimi: This makes me we wonder about how people wring their hands over their pet's food but don't question what protein products are in Spam.
