SPAM & Cheese Sandwich

D590F185-8C4D-4D1B-A9D5-C5D62FB665C2

Yes I did! I made a SPAM & Cheese Sandwich! I have never had SPAM before and my husband saw it at the grocery store and gave it to me to make something with it for my blog. I bought SPAM many decades ago and I was afraid to try it so I gave it away to a food drive! I have never heard anything bad about SPAM, I just didn’t know if I would like it.

According to http://www.mailguard.com, the word SPAM is derived from a contraction of “Spiced Ham”. During WWII and beyond, the word SPAM stood for “Special Processed American Meat”. The first can of SPAM was produced in 1937 when it became the USA’s biggest seller. When Americans went to WWII they were given 15 million cans of SPAM each week!

  1. Oh, this makes me so happy. I love grilled or pan-seared Spam. I am the only one in my family that will eat it so I rarely buy it unless I just get a craving for it. Congrats on being brave Diane!
    I will have to share this to prove I am not the only one who eats Spam. Wait, you didn’t say if you liked it? lol

  2. My grandmother used to make things like this with spam when I was a kid so I was never as unsure about spam as I know a lot of others are! And it’s really popular in Hawaii and they have lots of creative recipes using it, even in sushi, oddly enough!

    • It took me decades to try it. I don’t like it right out of the can but fried and on a sandwich was very good! I even ate the fried leftover pieces cold for lunch the next day and they were delicious!
