The Monk

I was told by a Korean Doctor that a Christmas basket in S. Korea always included cans of Spam. A left over from the Korean War. I also saw a late 1940's show form England with the wife complaining about how all she could find was Spam for dinner. I guess we kept a few Brits going during 1945 and 1946!
However, I do like it...my wife hates it and even though it is cooked, I could not eat it "raw".

 
I get what you're saying ~ not straight out of the can without further preparation: fried or baked, right?     
 
Saw and picked up a can of  turkey Spam the other day ~ for nostalgia's sake. Sliced and butter-fried it till it had a nice crust and topped it with an over easy egg on potato bread.  
 
Let's just say some things are better left to a good childhood memory.

Isn't Spam nothing more than a hunk of the cold cut "spiced-ham"? I was once even told the name "Spam" comes from "Spiced-Ham"   And while I don't eat Spam  ,ocassionally we get thinly sliced spiced ham ...it's good fried for breakfast!

My initial dislike of spam was due to my mother serving it cubed up straight from the can on salad. Needless to say, cold spam straight from the can on lettuce gave me emotional turrets through my young adulthood.  It wasn't until some arm twisting by a Hawaiian girlfriend got me to try it sliced and fried over rice with eggs did I realize it could actually be pretty tasty.  Since then I always fry or grill it now as a 1/4 to 1/3" spam slice.  I've also won people over dicing it up, frying it, and adding it to macaroni salads.  (Not telling them what it is until they try it.  Or outright lying and saying it's fried bologna.  I know, shameless.)

I agree CC, but once or twice a year I like a Spam sandwich.

On a Restaurant menu this would say: Tender slices of Pork skillet fried to a golden brown, served with short stack of Blueberry buttermilk pancakes, two eggs any style..............Now, what's wrong with that...........

Only if you really, really stretch your definition of ham. Official ingredient list is "chopped shoulder pork with ham" (indicating two different areas on the pig as opposed to traditional cured ham), salt, water, potato starch, sugar, and sodium nitrite. Spiced ham actually contains cured ham, and nothing else.

I like to think of spam as "a pork product" in the manner than American cheese, Velveta, Cheese Whiz are not legally sold as cheese but "a cheese product".

Hi Leethebard spiced ham, that just brought back memories from when I was a child and we would get chipped spiced ham at Isaly's in Pittsburgh.  They would put it in  bbq sauce.  Now my deli in Florida carries Boars Head brand.

I guess all the Spam varieties have pushed Treet off the shelf.  There wasn't a can of Treet in sight!
