74 years and going strong! Funny, my 10-year-old son had been bugging me for about a year to buy Spam so he could try it. My wife always objected, but you know, when Dad goes to the grocery store, you never can tell what will jump in the cart. He liked it quite a bit fried up with eggs. Not a bad breakfast burrito if I do say so myself.

Spam buns:

1 can of spam (we use the lite spam).
A few ounces of Velveeta to taste (again we use lite).
Mash together with a potato masher until it is a mealy consistency.
Mix in chopped sweet onion to taste.
Spread mixture open faced onto whatever hamburger/hotdog bun you have.
Broil until cheese melts and the mixture begins to brown.

This is comfort food for us, one of my wife's family recipes. I'm ashamed to say I have never tried these on the grill, but we usually make it as a quick last minute dinner.

My grandmother used to make fried spam sandwiches on buttered white bread. Used to be pretty good. A couple years back I bought a can because my wife never had the stuff. I fried it up and ... I just can't believe I used to eat that stuff. I don't think e even tried a bite.

Just put a pecan pie in it, that makes anything better.

Living only 20 minutes away from Spam Town USA (Austin,MN), I've had my fair share of spam growing up over the past 36 years. Still....nothing beats just slicing it, frying it up, and putting it on some bread...Mmmmmmmm....memories.......

I take it you're speaking from experience? :crazy:

I don't think I could bring myself to do this, but I don't tend to experiment with pecan pies. My family would kill me; whereas, yours doesn't seem to care for them. :shocked:

Nope, still couldn't do it.
