Look at all the fun you can have with Spam, the Hormel meat of many uses. You can serve it cold. You can serve it hot. You can slice it, dice it, bake it, fry it. You can enjoy it for breakfast, luncheon, supper or dinner. You can make it into sandwiches and canapes. And you can do all these tricks with the greatest of ease! Spam is made of pure pork shoulder meat with ham added… comes only in handy 12-ounce cans that need no refrigeration. Let your next word to the grocer be Spam!
What can I cook without much fuss?
