You can of course use it in any way you normally use regular spam but perhaps one of my favorite ways to have it is to cube it up and cook it in with navy beans or in split pea soup.
I am not a fan of the hot spam or the hickory spam that tastes a bit odd to me. If I were to describe the flavor for you it would be. Bacon spam doesn't taste exactly like bacon. It is more like they mixed 20% bacon in with regular spam. It is hard to find this variety in stores. I have only seen it a the Mega-Walmarts and here on Amazon. Enjoy!
By the way I slice this up and fry it in the skillet. It really does smell and taste like bacon.
I think I bought some at Sam's Club once but when I went back for more they did not have it.
Wal-Mart didn't have it either.
What I do is open the can and extract the meat from inside carefully. I make at least 8 equal slices. Thinner is better but I find that I like uniformity in my slice. I spray the skillet lightly with some non stick spray. Turn the burner on high and wait a minute or two for it to get hot. Place the slices in the pan for 4 or 5 minutes and turn the heat back to medium high. Flip them over and brown both side. If either side isn't uniformly brown flip again until it is just right.
Cooking them this way will reduce the fat content a little. It adds a lightly crisp texture and a cooked meat flavor. I like to eat them just like that out of the pan. I also like to put two slices between bread with a little mustard.
-Spam Musubi: seawead, rice, terikyaki sauce, and spam. Roll it up like square sushi. Dip it in sirachi/teriyaki sauce. I think it tastes better with thinner 1/4 inch spam slices seared on both sides but that is a matter of preference.
-In place of bacon: The name really stands true but you have to cook it much longer to get that bacon flavor. Cut it really really think (like 1/8 inch) and cover it on a medium fire. Once the fat burns out it will cook a lot faster. Wait until it gets crispy.
-Fried rice: If you slice it into thin half inch squares you can use it for fried rice. Use day old cooked rice so it doesn't clump together. Reheat the rice in the pan and put some soy sauce in there. In a separate pan cook some vegetables, the spam, and scrambled eggs last. Throw the eggs and other ingredients in with the rice when the eggs are still runny. Add some salt and pepper for taste and you have yourself a meal.
Hope this gives you some ideas :)
I bought a case (of 6, not 12) on Amazon for $12 and change on subscription, and have purchased it numerous times since. But now this product is more than $20!!!! That is $3.38 per pound for SPAM?! That's more than Spam costs at the most expensive grocery store in my area, and being in the middle of nowhere, food prices are even HIGHER here than anywhere else. WHAT ARE THEY THINKING???? This is supposed to be a protein source for people on TIGHT budgets, not wealthy people! This is even more expensive than the GOOD packaged ham at our expensive grocery store. And this price reflects the 15% discount you get when you subscribe to an item. The cost of this is INSANE. Guess I'll just have to find a way to pack a ham in my refrigerator once a month. More protein and less fat, not a bad thing.
An obvious consideration with Pam is its nutritional value, or possible lack there of. So I looked up some of the relevant nutritional information, some of which I will repeat here. You should consider doing the same.
Each can of Spam holds 12 ounces, or six servings (in Hormel's estimation). Each serving of Turkey Spam has 80 calories. The bacon and cheese versions have 180 and 170 calories, respectively.
A serving of Turkey Spam has 4.5 grams of total fat and 1.5 grams of saturated fat. The numbers for Bacon Spam are 16 and 6 grams. And for Cheese Spam, the numbers are 15 and 6 grams. The recommended daily reference values are 65 and 20 grams.
A serving of Turkey Spam has 35 mg of cholesterol while the others have 40 mg of cholesterol. The recommended daily value is 300 mg.
A serving of Turkey Spam And Bacon Spam have 520 mg of sodium. Cheese Spam has 720 Mg. The recommended daily value is 2400 mg.
Essentially this means that Turkey Spam is healthier than the others, but any of these versions of Spam can fit into a nutritious program SO LONG AS you limit the servings and don't use a lot of fatty oil if you fry your servings. If you insist on eating a whole can every day, you will tend to be fat with clogged arteries and high blood pressure.
I don't fry my Spam although it's tempting to do that a slice at a time for breakfast.Read more ›
