  1. AWESOME!!! Two of my favorite dishes, combined...fried SPAM & Chicken Fried Steak!!! I used the 25% less sodium SPAM...I find that the regular is too salty & the Lite is tasteless. I floured the SPAM, then into egg wash & back into the flour....worked out fine!!! I thought they were even better when smothered in the chicken gravy! THANKS for sharing!!!
  2. We really enjoyed this recipe! There was enough to have used 2 cans of Spam (and it was so good that I wish we had done so!). After we were done cooking the Spam and had removed them, I made a milk gravy in the same pan. We made use of the leavings in that skillet and served the gravy with some mashed potatoes and a little over the Chicken Fried Spam as well. It was nice, easy dinner that everyone enjoyed.
  3. This is a terrific recipe. I really am a Kept Man and I am always looking for dinner recipes my lover will enjoy. I made a half recipe because there are only two of us and I eat twice what she does. The major change was to add green beans as a second vegetable. She liked it and was taken aback when she learned it was Spam.<br/><br/>I grow Habenero peppers in my garden so I sprinkled some on my plate.
  4. We loved it! The family is a fan of chicken fried steak, so this was a natural extension. Had a can on hand, went together quickly, no complaints! The wife commented it was the most unusual way she had ever eaten Spam.
  5. I really loved this, it was not what I had expected, I did add a few things to the flour mix, I added some onion powder, some paprika & some corn starch ( for some fluffiness), my hubby is not much on spam, and when he doesn't like something he speaks up, his words were it's not bad, that means he likes it, the only problem we had was if we liked it with chicken gravy or with the cheese sauce i make with velveeta, But all in all we both liked it , but I do agree with the double dipping, Thanks for the recipe, we will make this again!
