When was the last time you ate Spam?

I seem to have fallen down the rabbit hole with these Korean street food cooking videos.

This is pretty clever. Using a sheet of seaweed to hold everything together instead of bread.

I never saw anything like this when I was in Korea.

I confess, I have never in my life consumed Spam (glorious Spam).

2-3 months ago. May eat one or two cans of it a year, get the low salt variety about half the time.

One of the hot rod shops in Speedway, Indiana across from the Indy 500 track had a “Spamarama” party every year with a chef from a local restaurant a few doors down catering sliced and baked spam as varieties such as Hawaiian, Barbecue, Italian Style, etc with chips, Cole slaw and desert for free every year. Also had a great car show and live music all for free (except the beer). That spam was quite tasty

Nor have I that I'm aware of. Not that I'm all that picky about which highly-processed meat products I consume (in moderation, of course), just that I've never cared much for real, genuine, on-the-bone-in-one-piece ham so faux/reconstituted "ham" holds little appeal for me.

Breakfast this morning with eggs, living on Keto diet and Spam fits perfectly in the Keto plan.

It has been quite a while for me. I didn’t like the low salt variety last time I bought some. Do like Hawaiian dishes with it.

Spam musubi... either during a trip to Hawaii, or thru Central Coastal Cali about 7 years ago.
Would probably not do it again...

Seems to me that Spam is what you eat after a civilization-destroying disaster. Other than that, try to stick with real food.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Not far from here there are two different Hawaiian barbecues which have their own style of Spam Musubi as well as an interesting Spam Saimin (a noodle soup). Might have to consider a trip out for lunch tomorrow!

I honestly forget what it is like. I know I bought and ate a can of it a few years ago (10 maybe?) and wonder if I fried it or buttered it onto bread like a liver sausage. But I never did get around to cooking up spam spam spam spam spam and eggs. I suspect that if some local diner did their own version of that recipe they could sell an order of it every week or two. Make them rich.

Last October, with covid cases going down in the area, we ventured out to a popular Japanese market near us. Had a nice warm Spam musubi. I order it maybe once a year if I see it on the menu.

I also like to eat mashed up canned tuna fish with mayonnaise once a year. <shrug>

Throw in some sweet relish, a chopped-up boiled egg or three, and a little dried dill weed and I'm right there with you. I find the dark tuna better for this dish as it has a more pronounced flavor and the kind packed in oil mixes better with the mayo.

I think we were watching Young Rock on TV, and they were making spam musubi. Never had it, but it’s a common (and presumably popular) menu item in Hawaii.

Edit:



How can you resist? Nummers!

We take along on camping trips once in a while (and vienna sausage.) It's an easily transported and prepared high-calorie source that's not sugar or carbs. It is not a staple at home beyond perhaps using up a can that we didn't get to on vacation. Something about lots of fresh air and hiking makes it taste much better.

I had some a week or so ago. Hmm...maybe I'll have some this morning. Yum. I slice it and heat it in the air fryer oven. Easy peasy. We use the low sodium variety.

Don't recall ever having it. Not even the four years I lived in Hawaii.

Underwood deviled ham was a staple of my childhood, however.

4-5 weeks ago... I got three cans of a "Portuguese Sausage" flavor SPAM for Christmas. Still have one left.

Seriously, folks... some of you have a REALLY wrong idea about what is in Spam. Know what's in it? Pork shoulder, ham, salt, and some seasoning. No "lips and arseholes" (those go in sausage that I'll bet most of you don't think twice before eating).

Take SPAM, slice it about 1/4" thick, and pan fry until brown... now put it next to toast and eggs, and you've got a fine breakfast.

Hmm. I don't recall EVER eating Spam. I do remember eating potted meat though. And sardines! As a kid I couldn't get enough of them. I even put them on sandwiches during my Dagwood phase. smiley-shocked003

I remember as a little kid in elementary school, they used to give us what I called "square hot dogs". It was only after telling my parents about it that we figured out it was just Spam cut that way from the block. I have tried it once since out of curiosity. Not as terrible as I expected, but not as decent as I remember as a kid, either. Needs mustard.

The last time I had it, it was extremely salty. You can buy low sodium SPAM, but it gets really expensive.

Sorry but all I could think of is a huge block of spam and some old dude carving off slices to dole out to the kiddies. Kinda Pink Floyd-esque "you can't have your pudding if you didn't eat your meat."
