spamwich spread

Recipe by

OK. I like Spam. I served it to my family when they were growing up. It was cheap, they ate it, and it filled their bellies! I used to make this for camping trips and we would put in the pie irons for hot sandwiches for lunch or supper. I put it in hamburger buns, wrapped in foil, put it in the fridge, and heated in the oven later for a quick supper. I would put it on toasted rye bread and pop under the broiler for a minute or two for open faced sandwiches. It is even good cold.
