Crusty spambake

I know.  SPAM.  Eww!  But come on!  I HAD to try it!

CRUSTY SPAMBAKE - a recipe from grandma's collection

First of all.  I LOVE that grandma refers to the SPAM as "meat"!

In NO way does SPAM look like meat.  I tried to hurry to get it out of the can before the kids came in and saw it!

I hurried with the whole recipe because I thought it would send the kids right out the door if they saw what I was doing.

We cooked a couple little steaks a long with this in case it was absolutely horrible.  The kids thought it was horrible from the moment I said, "SPAM", so they had steak.

I must say, it actually wasn't THAT bad!  It was fun to experiment with another of grandma's recipes.  In case anyone out there is crazy enough wanting to try this - I was talking to someone when I wrote the recipe down and did it wrong.  I mixed the sugar and cloves with the mustard and spread that on.  I wonder what it would have been like if I'd put the sugar and cloves in with the corn flakes?  I think we might have missed out on some of that sweetness.

  1. Oh my gosh! I grew up on spam since it was a cheap meal for a family of 7. Totally refuse to eat it now and haven't had any in over 40 years! What really caught my eye about your post though was the recipe card. I have the same ones! Thanks for sharing your recipe but I'm not going to try it! Haha!

  2. I don't think I ever had Spam in my youth -- probably because of my smart Mama!! However, I have had a most delicious breakfast using Treet, cornbread and syrup!

  3. I remember my Dad doing a spam and pineapple thing many years ago!

  4. I've never heard of spam and pineapple together! Wow! {:-D

  5. Noooooooo! Not SPAM!! This does not bear happy memories for me. I hated Spam nights...and salmon patty nights. Stephen LOVES Spam though. My older sister introduced him to it. You crack me up are right...totally NOT meat IMO!

  6. I ate a lot of spam in my day! Next time, don't tell them what it is until AFTER they tried it!

  7. This is so funny! SPAM was always a gag gift for us. I love that you have a recipe using it from your grandma!

  8. I'm cracking up here!

    My Mom made this recipe...often!

    This brought back a lot of memories.

    Possibly not so great!

    But still.

    cute, cute, cute letter C.

    Thanks for linking.
