Canned spam dishes and recipes are truly something that brings us back in time! I remember having spam sandwiches as a child, but these dishes are different indeed.
Here are four recipes from a page in an old booklet titled:
“Let’s Eat Outdoors”
Recipes and Ideas for Picnics, Barbecues, Patio Parties, Camping
American Dairy Association
Recipes follow the image below (found in center of booklet, too cute ;)):
