I came across this recipe about 16 years ago. I know this sandwich sounds a bit strange, being Spam and all, but I have to admit it's not a bad tasting sandwich. It's the only thing I've ever made with spam.

Quite simply the best Spam sandwich I've ever had! During my tour in 'nam Spam was like acid to soldiers on the front line. When mom sent a can of Spam over for one of the boys, we were on that thing quicker than he could crack the can. And when he did...that block of ham lying there cooking in its own juices like a ceviche in hell. Anyways, just lifting back the top to another glorious chunk of Spam was just spectacular for me. I did cry for three hours thinking about the good old days, but that's neither here nor there. Signing off, General Jaybirds Read More

I made my own barbeque sauce shredded Spam added shredded cheddar and mozarella and then topped the mixture on large dinner rolls (cut in half). I topped each with french fried onion rings (canned) and baked. They were delicious and won a Spam contest I entered! Read More

Best Sandwich EVER!! all we added was some nice Walla Walla Sweet Onion slices. Growing up an AF brat we lived for the days my Dad made Spam for us. It was hard for him but we loved it so much now Spam is a happy memory for him and his grandchildren. Thanks to the General and all our vets for making life free because they are THE BRAVE!!!

Upon seeing some of the positive reviews, I passed this recipe onto my mom to make for my dad - who loves spam. My mom said the BBQ sauce was a little excessive - possibly 1c would do, and although the taste was a little unusual - overall was good. Read More

I am NOT a Spam lover, but my DH is. I was trying to think of a way to use some Spam I found in the cabinet and came across this recipe. I made it exactly as directed and he loved it! Read More
