The Great SPAM Debate....

Some fun SPAM facts:

Ken Daigneau,
brother of a Hormel Foods vice president
wins a contest and
$100.00 for naming SPAM.

More than 100 million pounds of SPAM
luncheon meat was shipped aboard

In Southeast Asia,
a SPAM gift pack
would be considered an appropriate
wedding gift.

In the Philippines,
there is a restaurant
based entirely around SPAM.

In Hawaii,
SPAM products are everywhere.
Served in grocery store delis to fancy restaurants.
Even Mc Donalds features several SPAM breakfast items.

In Guam,
the average annual SPAM consumed
comes out to about 16 cans per person.

In the UK,
SPAM is dipped in batter and
deep-fried until crispy.
Hmm, sounds interesting~

My hubby grew up eating SPAM.
I on the other hand, did not.
We ate our fair share of ring bolonga....
but I don't remember ever eating SPAM.
That means only one thing to me....
my mother didn't like SPAM.

My hubby's family made something that they called: Denver's.
Fried SPAM slices, a fried egg, a slice of American cheese,
served on toast. A SPAM breakfast sandwich.

This recipe has been around for years...
at least for 35 years and
it is one of those recipes that you have no idea,
who or where you even got the recipe.

This sandwich spread is delicious served hot as a dip.
Spoon filling into an oven-proof dish,
bake until Velveeta is melted and
dip is heated through.

Serve Spam Dip with
Frito Scoop Corn Chips
