Recipe by Stacky5
This was a recipe of my Mom's that was a favorite to all us kids! I recently found her hand-written recipe and just had to post this (especially for Chef Bill Hilbrich who has a cookbook devoted to Spam...) When I look back on those years in the 70's when my siblings and I looked forward to this dish so much, I now realize that my Mom was just trying to "stretch her grocery budget," but how happy she must have been that we really LOVED this recipe! Funny, huh?

Oh, Yes ... A blast from the past when canned meat was seen as a convience rather than something to hide in the cupboard. My mother made this, although I do not recall the star shape, back in the 1950's, and I loved it. Thank You for preserving a childhood memory. Bill

- Mix remaining ingredients well, and spread this glaze on top of both Spam loaves (letting it drip down the sides).
