        The Spam Hash would be fine, cut in smaller pieces. The Spam is salty and would fit right in..................

          A friend in the Virgin Islands, Bruce Kimmelman, was the Spam supplier (Schaefer beer, too)  in the area and one of his party hors d'oeurvre was Spam cubes sauteed in Cruzan rum and served on toothpicks.
           
          Good! And good for you.
           
          Schaefer, (was) the, one beer to have when you (were) having more than one.

              No, as it should be the same price as potted meat. Instead, it's the same price as quality bacon and sausage.

                  The last time we had Spam was perhaps 12 or so years ago - it was sliced very thin and fried until it was crisp - much like bacon.  As I said it's been a long time and I can still remember it being very salty.

                        I discoverd Spam in 1979 at a bridal shower. Someone's Mother cut it up in cubes, put it in a crockpot with BBQ sauce, and we ate it. i thought it was pretty good as an unsophisticated palate can. Our best friend, Roy, loved Spam fried, with melted American cheese on toast. We, about two times a year, have a "Roy"sandwich, as he died at the age of 40 (13 years ago in a fire)

                              The last time we had Spam was perhaps 12 or so years ago - it was sliced very thin and fried until it was crisp - much like bacon.  As I said it's been a long time and I can still remember it being very salty.

                              They make a low sodium one now along with a bunch of other varieties. 
                              Varieties
                              There are several different flavors of Spam products, including:
                              Spam Classic – original flavor
                              Spam Hot & Spicy – with Tabasco flavor
                              Spam Jalapeño
                              Spam Less Sodium – "25% less sodium"[
                              Spam Lite – "33% less calories and 50% less fat" – made from pork shoulder meat, ham, and mechanically separated chicken
                              Spam Oven Roasted Turkey
                              Spam Hickory Smoke flavor
                              Spam Spread – "if you're a spreader, not a slicer ... just like Spam Classic, but in a spreadable form"
                              Spam with Bacon
                              Spam with Cheese
                              Spam Garlic
                              In addition to the variety of flavors, Spam is sold in tins smaller than the twelve-ounce standard size.
                              Spam Singles are also available, which are single sandwich-sized slices of Spam Classic or Lite, sealed in retort pouches.

                                I'm with the rats.  Won't touch it.

                                Rumor has it that they're coming out with Kosher Spam!
                                I'll keep you posted.
                                They also make Turkey Spam now!

                                  Back in the days of canned bacon, we'd take a cple of those along as well as cans of Spam on long overnight boat trips.  The 2 made it to almost every meal in one way or another

                                    SPAM makes a great decorative paperweight.

                                      Imagine my delight when on a training mission to Pearl Harbor when I chanced to have breakfast at the McDonalds there on the pier and they had Spam and eggs. Of course none of my contemporaries partook, but what the hey...used to eat it for midrats on good old Archerboat.

                                          World War II. Lots of Spam there, and left over after it ended.

                                            That's exactly correct Michael. In fact there was a recent episode of DDD that mentioned just that very fact. Whereas the rest of the world has moved on to other delicacies, Hawaii remains steadfastly in love with spam. The spam sushi in my book is definately over the top.

                                              I have a couple of friends who love Spam musubi.
                                               
                                              I've grilled and smoked it, and it does come out quite salty.  Same with vienna sausages.

                                                Spam is huge on Guam, too. And that's also a carryover from War Two.

                                                  I love Kenji. He is so much fun!

                                                  I would try a few of those with Pork Roll instead of Spam.

                                                  Maybe the Luther Burger with a Doughnut Plant doughnut variety that matches the wonderful goodness of Pork Roll.

                                                  I think I would try the Double-Down with Pepper Jack... but I don't know about adding bacon. Maybe something else.

                                                    Pork roll is good. Tastes a lot like Spam and Treet.

                                                      How about a Double down with goetta or scrapple instead of Spam?

                                                        I've never had Goetta (it sounds like it would be a good DD from the Melton's report) or Spam Treet or Scrapple.

                                                            When I was serving in Vietnam getting a can of Spam was like getting a bar of Gold!  If you didnt lock it up or hide it somewhere it would get stolen!  
                                                            Sooooooooo  many good ways of eating it!  Fried, mixed with scrambled eggs, rolled up inside a flour tortilla etc etc or right out of the can plain!
                                                            Anyone who claims to eat canned potted meat, liverwurst or the like should not at all be critical of Spam!  
                                                            Spam is also especially good topped off with a huge chunk of melted cheese.
