20 Ways To Eat SPAM Meat
Share this blog post with friends

Hungry?  What’s for dinner is a question you’ll hear often around my home.  Everyone always wants to know.  I love making home cooked meals for my family but sometimes I just don’t have enough time!  Or I can make some parts from scratch but need a little help on the sides.  So I like to turn to packaged rices, pastas, and bagged salads for a little time saving help when needed.  One food item I find that many people use is SPAM.  While my favorite way to serve up SPAM is cut into small pieces on my homemade pizza, there are lots of other ways!  Most I had never even considered!

    I haven’t had Spam in years! I didn’t realize that there was so many ways to eat it, thank you so much for sharing! I remember I always loved it fried, it really is good!

  • Darcy Koch

    So many recipes I never thought are possible using Spam. Unfortunately, I never cared for it. We had to eat it as kids, but it was a struggle.

  • Sarah L

    I remember eating it while growing up. I’ve never had it as an adult. I think I’m in the ‘not for me’ group.

  • ellen beck

    I LOVE Spam, hubby dislikes it. I ate it as a kid, I will buy a can now and again or now there are single serving pouches (they are a huge serving BTW) and have that! I like Spam and eggs, sandwiches, a grilled Spam sandwich rocks! I even got hubby to go to the Spam museum in Austin MN. Itwas a hoot. You know most people think Spam is low quality meats- it is not! It comes from the shoulder and is not a hodge podge at all. The museum was interesting, you really learn the history, and it played a huge part in feeding troops.

    Yes, I love this stuff 🙂

    When I was grown up, we ate SPAM like crazy!My Mother used to slice it and then pan fry it and a few minutes before done coat in steak sauce. We loved it.
    Years later, as a new bride, I moved to Minneapolis. Imagine my shock when my husband took me to the SPAM museum!

  • I love SPAM and all your ideas sound delicious!

    Spam is certainly unique, and can be cooked with various other things!

    My favorite way is the grilled cheese sandwich you did mention. I fry my spam seperately and then add it to the grilled
    cheese sandwich. Makes the best sandwich ever!

    I never knew there were so many ways to serve Spam. Honestly, I remember having to eat this as a kid and never really cared for it. Maybe it deserves a second time around by using it another way. Thank you for all the suggestions of using Spam!

  • I remember eating this as a child these recipes look good

    I had to read your article, because I am hoping to get a job in Hawaii that I interviewed for. They love spam there, but maybe it’s an acquired taste there too. I tried Spam Musubi (spelling?) once, and it was okay. If I get the job, I will have to try Spam again and likely some of these ideas.

  • Michelle S

    I actually had Spam in sushi rolls once. It was really delicious.
