    Spam or Scrapple

    I went over my girlfriend's house and she made me eat Spam.... and I liked it! lol..... I can not believe all the recipes they have for spam..........

    So I told her that she has to try Scrapple.. I only eat Scrapple on way... thin sliced and crispy.... my cousin just slices it off and eats it on bread like meatloaf... She says it is cooked but I am not sure about that!!! it just doesn't look good... lol

    Scrapple girl, here! Love the stuff! But I would not eat it without being heated/cooked. Used to smother it in maple syrup but go naked now that I don't do flour/sugar. Still awesome. DH hates the concept so I usually only have it when we have breakfast out. Spam, not so much. It's okay - but give me scrapple any day of the week! Then again, I also love pepper vs. salt.

    When you don't have much growing up and the family is large, you eat Spam when the cupboards are bare and the freezer has been unplugged. And of course whatever comes out of the garden. Fried Spam on home made rye buns with Velveeta was a regular in our house. Now I can't eat it unless I use little or no cheddar cheese. Spam is similar to taking whatever dark meat, light meat, and some of the marbling that is left from a ham bone and put it through a meat grinder. Then spray a cast iron griddle and fry it up. Good!

    Scrapple is everything but the Oink! I think it's bigger in the Northeast than any place else. I can't gag it down.

    All that popped into my head was the Spam Lamb from an episode of M*A*S*H My father likes fried Spam. It's the only thing I hated about camping trips. I knew that one morning we were going to have fried Spam and there was going to be a big argument as I gagged on that too.

    However strange it may be, I DO like Deviled Spam. Comes in a little short round can. There are a couple other brands that call it "potted meat" I think it's good for a quick sandwich on wheat bread, a slather of mayo and could slices of 'mater. YUM!!!!

    I love that stuff...LOL A can or two of it and some fresh sliced bread and I am a happy camper. Sadly I can't find it here where I live. Now Spam, reminds me a of congealed science experiment...lol

    My inlaws lived outside Philly and scrapple was always on their Sunday morning menu. There were those who like it thin and crispy, others who wanted it sliced thicker and then there were a few of us who passed it by for bacon. Spam is a staple in my emergency food supply and it now comes in all sorts of flavors. It can be used like corned beef hash in with your onion, peppers, and potatoes. My DGM used to dice half a can and put into scalloped potatoes and serve with green beans. The other half would be sliced thin, browned in a cast iron skillet and served on HB buns with lettuce, onion and tomatoes.

    When we lived in Anchorage Alaska there was a great night club that actually had SPAM on their menu. They were famous for it. It was sort of also a comedy club and they would actually show slides of people who were in exotic places holding up a can of SPAM. Very funny. I also like it but I never buy it because I think it has mostly fat in the content.

    From what I have seen on TV, Spam is so popular in Hawaii it is almost the state most popular "meat". My husband claims that when he use to go fishing he could trade his "spam sandwiches" with the other guys roast beef. I don't particularly like spam but I love my scabble

    When we went to Target while in Hawaii, we went to snack counter to get popcorn and lo and behold, right at the register was a "Spam snack". I was really surprised and then my DD (stationed in Okinawa at the time) said, "It is also very popular in Japan".

    My DH and I love Spam. I slice it thin, broil it and serve it as the meat part of a meal. Or make sandwiches out of it. I have baked it before, put pineapple slices on it and marachino cherries and chopped it and put in with scrambled eggs when we used to camp.

    Spam for this family-the only contact I ever had with Scrapple personally was in Baltimore, scrambled into eggs for breakfast; and ate it without questioning what was in it, since I wasn't the cook. But now Spam, when we tell our grandkids 'Spam sandwiches for lunch after church, the whole bunch shows up at our house for lunch.....

    It is a common staple food in Hawaii. It introduced there by the military as a staple in their rations. Then some military men introduced into the local culture and it became a popular food because it required no refrigeration and seems to last forever.

    All the gas stations and quick stops sell spam with rice wrapped in seaweed and steamed. Its a wonderful snack, very popular and even I can eat it. Grew up with Dad liking spam from his Army days. Mom would fry it and we ate it with potatoes, veggies and I never liked it that way; flavor way to strong.

    In our College days we ate it, but I dipped the slices in beaten egg and then in cracker crumbs and then fried it. It was pretty good if I remember right. Never had it since.ha-SPAM, that is.

    We bought a house in Kauai and my son moved there. We learned how to make musubi, which is spam and rice "logs" wrapped in Nori seaweed. It is kind of a guilty pleasrure...

    Homemade scrapple

    This is a scaled down version that I make at home. I've made it with broth made from a pig's head, assorted meaty pork bones and even from a roast turkey carcass.

    5 cups pork or turkey broth
    2 cups. (approx.) cooked pork or turkey meat, ground or finely chopped
    2 t. salt
    1 t. black pepper or more to taste
    2 t. ground sage
    1/2 t. marjoram
    1 T. dried minced onion (for turkey)
    1-1/2 cups cornmeal

    I usually make this from leftovers, either a bone-in pork roast, like a picnic shoulder, or from a turkey carcass. for that authentic Delaware taste, you might want to use a pork heart or a bit of pork liver as part of your meat.

    Simmer ingredients, except cornmeal, together in heavy bottomed pot until onion is tender. Bring to a boil. If you are using pork, I like to leave a thin layer, 1/8" or so, of fat on the broth to help it fry better. Moisten cornmeal with just enough cold water to make it feel like wet sand. Add moistened cornmeal to the boiling broth. Turn heat down and stir continuously for 'a long time'. Be careful, the mixture will be like boiling lava, and it can splatter and burn the unsuspecting. You want the mixture to start to pull away from the sides of the pan. Pour into ungreased loaf pans and let cool overnight. To serve, cut into slices and fry in oil until crisp. You can either slice this thick or thin If sliced thin, the whole thing will be crisp. If thick, there will be a crisp outside crust with a creamy moist inside.

    This will make 2 loaf pans worth. It can be sliced and frozen, though you'll want to pat it dry with paper towels before frying it.

    BTW: I am not the I above. I have never made it but someday......
