I've never been a big Spam fan, but that sounds pretty good.

Spam is some good stuff, the only problem at my house is I have to share it with the cats. It's one of the things we fed our 21 year old cat to keep her weight up, she loved the stuff.

I've always enjoyed Spam and fried eggs. Reminds me of winter camp in Scouts. A spam and swiss sandwich is also quite tasty. Also had sweet and sour Spam once, but I'm still kind of on the fence about that. It had the pork flavor, but the texture was weird.

Teriyaki SPAM had a spongy texture, I didn't like that. I'll use regular SPAM next time.

I've also never figured out why people don't like SPAM, it's pork and ham with salt, good stuff.

I think a lot of it is, or was, referred dislike. It was a pretty substantial food staple for American troops during WW II and a lot of them got really sick of it, and brought that back home.

In a way, Spam's wartime utility was also something of a curse.

Where I lived everyone ate SPAM growing up in the 80s, lots of fried SPAM and cheese on toasted white bread growing up. Our parents were children of the WWII soldiers.

Also noticed most people refuse to eat canned hams too.

Well which is it?

Everybody ate Spam when you were growing up, or why people don't like Spam...

So, they eat it, but they're miserable eating it.

That builds character, don't you know.

I don't remember anyone complaining about eating it back then and occasionally I hear a childhood friend talk about how they are craving a fried SPAM sammich. 

Of course going to the deli counter back then was pretty limited on choices of meat too, I remember shaved ham, roast beef and various loafs and bolognas. Cheese was 3 or 4 choices. Maybe all the choices we have now for sammich meat has people thinking about other meats instead of the canned variety.

I remember distinctly more than a few WW II veterans of my acquaintance who would not, under any circumstances, eat Spam because they were forced to eat so much of it when they were in the service during WW II.

I don't ever remember my grandfather eating anything canned except vegetables. He was in N. Africa and Italy. His beer was either tap or bottled, no canned beer.

Dude,  memories.  That was a staple in the 90s when I was a kid.

There's a local gas station/truck stop/mini mart/laundromat/deli/carryout that makes those exact sandwiches in the fall during hunting season.  They also do a mean fried bologna.

I don't know about cooking it, I prefer it straight out of the can at room temp, just like my Spaghetti-Os.
