I didn't even want to try these, knowing what it was, but I did and loved them. The pepper gives the Spam a bacony taste. Try them, just once!

I absolutely did not think this would turn out well at all! After all, I grew up hating spam, but then, of course, at that time there was only one kind! I did, however, go whole-hog because I was making appetizers, & I used both a can of Hickory Smoked Spam & one of Over Roasted Turkey Spam, but did not double the amount of pepper! Served the small cuts of spam on multi-grain crackers & was very happy with the results! Definitely something I'd make again! Thanks for posting the recipe!
