A pro argument for the existence of Spam, the “canned cooked meat:”
- If the Spam is sliced very thin, and cooked in a skillet until crispy;
- If you toast an English muffin, and cook a good egg until the yolk is just beginning to set;
- If the cheese is not Velveeta;
- Spam almost beats bacon.
NOTE: My Dad, who would have been 93 yesterday, adored Spam in any form, including thick, somewhat gelatinous, uncooked slices with yellow mustard on spongy white bread. A child of the Depression, he was fond of all sorts of processed meats: potted ham, deviled ham, head cheese, dried beef, ring bologna, Vienna sausages – you name it, if a product had a long shelf-life, the man loved it.
