Along with some old fruitcake.

You could try this

Baked Macaroni & Cheese with Spam Recipe

but for real authenticity, you might want to use velveeta

Lots of wonderful suggestions have been given and the entertainment value is superb.

You might see if the grocer would swap it out for a case of something you might actually be able to use. The other option would be to donate it to a local food bank.

You have a great story to tell regardless of the final disposition of the product.

Funny you should mention that. Our daughter used to have a spam musubi Hallowe'en costume, and it was a big hit.

I think most at least half of it is.

Depends on your definition of the term "meat"...

Most of my friends are musicians - even they draw the line at cheetos and moon pies and are uninterested. I asked in a morning e-mail blast for takers and was soundly rebuked.

Send it to me; I'll have a party for the locals (who look at Spam as a basic food need).

An intriguing question. If they did, I doubt they could call it "spam", so it's hard to research. I did find some discussion of "soy spam":
Yo no quiero blog: ¡Yo no soy spam!

Just cut it up into small pieces and add to scrambled eggs. Voila! Quick and easy spam 'n' eggs.

If that is boring, then add mixed vegetables and/or cheese.

A third alternative would be to save it as disaster supplies, to provide that warm and fuzzy false sense of security that we are supposed to want.

I would save it so when you get really old it would be an alternative to cat food .

Has anyone ever eaten this stuff? Any suggestions?
Slice it real thin (bacon thin, I call it) and fry it up like bacon. OK not all of it at once, just enough to add to your fried eggs in the AM. Also will serve as survival food for when the aliens attack us.

I vote for donating it to the food bank as it is not to your taste. Some people really like it I hear. My son used to like those Vienna sausages in the jar. And my husband, when I first met him, was fond of some kind of ham paste in a little can...it was wrapped in paper and had a devil on the wrapping. I guess it was some kind of potted deviled ham. He ate it on Melba toast. I never tried it...

But all through high school I brought the same sandwich (every day for 3 years) for school lunch. It was chipped chopped ham (chipped ham) on whole wheat bread with mustard. I guess that is not too much of a stretch from Spam? On Sunday night, if we were out of chipped ham or Roman Meal bread, my poor father had to make a run to the deli to supply the can't-live-without ingredients for my school lunch the next day. Boy, he must have been glad to see me leave for college! I drank a small carton of skim milk with this delicacy and ate an apple.

Thought of some other ideas for serving up Spam, dice it up real small to use in an omelette or fried rice. Guess I'm the only person that admits to eating Spam, even though the pallet they sell at Costco always seems to need refilling all the time!
