    OMG, I LOVE Spam. I was actually at the Spam Museum on Minnesota. It was great! Hm.. spam and eggs, fried spam and rice, spam musubi.. do I sound like Bubba from Forest Gump?? LOL

  6. Jonon 05 Jul 2010 at 10:47 pm

    If I win this, I’d probably make my favorite SPAM dish… SPAM and egg sandwich. Brings back memories of highschool all over again haha. Nostalgic food is the best.

  9. Erin from Long Islandon 05 Jul 2010 at 11:22 pm

    SPAM was not something present in my householdgrowing up and I was always slightly scared, yet intrigued by it. I would love to try all the recipes from the big SPAM competitions held every year

  10. Simon Food Favouriteson 05 Jul 2010 at 11:47 pm

    i’ve had spam just fried and eaten as is but if i won this pack i’d try a spam and spaghetti dish like a spambolognese :-) i never knew there was so many types of spam.

  11. anncooon 06 Jul 2010 at 12:58 am

    I usually liked to add spam in the salad or make sandwiches. Thanks for the giveway :)

    Its summer time, the smell of bbq is there in the air.. I had made spam skewers with spam cubes, sausage, pineapple and red onions. I had only managed to get hold of the original spam here, haven’t had the chance to try other flavours. It would be great to be able to win it. =)

  13. Carolon 06 Jul 2010 at 2:17 am

    I friend Spam in our skillet and served it with eggs.

  14. debpon 06 Jul 2010 at 3:37 am

    I like fried spam sandwhiches.

  15. Lauren @ Delicateflavorson 06 Jul 2010 at 4:36 am

    I used to be the Spam Queen when I was in college. lol

    I would make Spam with Portobello Mushroom and Grape Tomatoes Linguine. Spam Quesadilla with Guacamole and Salsa. Grilled Spam and Pineapple slider. Spam and Mango Vietnamese Summer Roll. Spam Mix Spring Salad with Tomatoes, Hard Boiled Eggs, Mandarin Oranges and Toasted Almond. :)

    I use Spam in fried rice all of the time. I also make a few breakfast casseroles with it. It’s a great thing to keep in the pantry for a quick meal.

  19. Angelinaon 06 Jul 2010 at 7:53 am

    my mom used to make spam for breakfast all the time when I was young. I like it fried in a pan until its crispy, with a bowl of rice. Yum!

  20. Andrewon 06 Jul 2010 at 7:58 am

    Sometimes I dice it up and heat it in a skillet, or I dice it up for an omelette. Sometimes sliced on top of fried rice or in a SPAM musubi. And sometimes a thick, juicy slice in a SPAM burger!

    LOVE SPAM!!! I fry it up and put it on top of a bagel with cream cheese topped with a sunny side up egg :)

  22. Fight the Fat Foodieon 06 Jul 2010 at 9:11 am

    To see the magic that can be done with spam, you have to visit Hawaii. It is an art form over there! We use lite Spam to when were camping.

    Spam with waffles…..

  24. Kristenon 06 Jul 2010 at 9:52 am

    I haven’t ever really had spam, but the boyfriend loves it, especially pan-fried with some rice and a fried egg.

  25. Cooking with Kaiton 06 Jul 2010 at 10:16 am

    What a wonderful giveaway. The last time I made spam, I made it into a sushi roll.

  26. Jessicaon 06 Jul 2010 at 10:33 am

    Definitely Spam fried rice – though I have been known to fry it up and eat it by itself. I’m somewhat obsessed.

  27. Kellyon 06 Jul 2010 at 10:34 am

    Forget corned beef! I grew up eating hash made from Spam, potatoes, onions and peppers fried ’til crispy. Perfect with eggs for breakfast or brunch. It’s still one of my staples.

  28. Rhondaon 06 Jul 2010 at 11:43 am

    I have made spam into fried rice mostly but my mom used to make it like a little ham when I was little and stud it with cloves, brown sugar and pineapple and bake it…mmmmmmmm

  29. Deborah Andersonon 06 Jul 2010 at 12:22 pm

    I use it a lot for sandwiches, but I also use it for breakfast with eggs. Delicious!

  30. Alessaon 06 Jul 2010 at 3:32 pm

    Spam musubi! Yum.

  31. federicoon 06 Jul 2010 at 3:58 pm

    love me some spam… prepared it many many ways but when i’m hungry and there isn’t much around at the house just like to fry up a few slices real quick and eat them along side some over medium eggs and white rice… not the healthiest of dished but sure hits the spot!

  32. Cindy Waffleson 06 Jul 2010 at 4:39 pm

    SPAM + kimchi over rice!

  33. Debyon 06 Jul 2010 at 8:18 pm

    OMG – Love this post!!!! I can’t begin to tell you how much I love SPAM! It’s not only one of the things we grew up with, but it’s one of those ‘comfort’ foods that I truly love. One of my favorite ways to have it is fried w/cheddar cheese on top on a sandwich w/mustard. We’ve eaten it a ton of different ways including in a egg omelet and as hash with potatoes – most importantly…I JUST LOVE IT as does my sweet hubby. Would love the ‘starter’ kit, but either way, I’ll continue to eat my SPAM. Thanks.

  34. Sherrill Laughlinon 06 Jul 2010 at 8:39 pm

    Sliced Spam, dip both sides in sugar, then fry it up. Deliciousness.
    Ofcourse, served with Jasmine rice. We LOVE Spam!

  35. tigerfishon 06 Jul 2010 at 11:40 pm

    SPAM was actually childhood food for me. My family would slice the SPAM and pan fry them in whole slices. Then pan-fried SPAM + fried egg + tomato ketchup all in a sandwich.

  38. The Chocolate Priestesson 07 Jul 2010 at 8:07 am

    While we love chocolate, my family members all differ on what type, added ingredients and the form that chocolate tastes. One thing that unites us is SPAM, seriously!

    We all love it. While others might eat it as a lower cost treat, we just happen to love it period.

    I’ve made it in some many ways — casseroles, pasta mix-in, sandwiches, in salads though I haven’t thought of a way to use it for a dessert yet.

    We fry it and eat it in sandwiches! That’s all we’ve really tried, but it’s sooo good.

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  43. Lauren @ Delicateflavorson 15 Jul 2010 at 10:34 am

    Yippee! I WON! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I am so happy to have won and can’t wait to make all the Spam dishes. :)
