Spam Pie

All together now..."Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam...."
(Woman)"I don't like Spam."
(Man)"That's okay, dear. I'll have your Spam."

Okay, okay. You caught me being weird. I was looking through one of my Grandmother's old recipe books (A 1991 cookbook to mark the centennial of Sterling County, Texas). I promise to share her best recipes here in the future, but today, because I'm feeling weird, I am going to share with you Andi Wauer's Spam Pie, instead.

1 double pie crust
1 can Spam, cubed
1 cup partially cooked potaotes, cubed
1 cup Velveeta, cubed
1 cup Mozzarella cheese, cubed
1/2 cup bell pepper, chopped
1/4 onion, chopped
Milk, as needed, not more than 1/4 cup
Salt, pepper, garlic to taste

Mix all ingredients, but pie crust, adding enough milk to keep the mixture moist. Pour into the pie crust and put second crust on top; slit. Bake at 350 degrees until browned.

I DARE you to try this!

You DARE me? Is that a triple dog dare?

Eeek, not sure if I could deal with it. I have to say though, it'd fit with Meathenge, fer sure.

You've inspired me to post a great Spam ad I found once online somewhere. I haven't figured out how to put the picture and my comments in one post, so here are two urls in case you're'll interested. Jeff Moore

Thanks for stopping by, Gentlemen!

You know, actually, this recipe might be pretty good--with a few tweaks. Maybe some ham instead of the Spam. Cheddar or Jack instead of Velveeta. We don't do bell pepper at our house--but, definitely more onion. Hmmm...

I just baked me a Spam Pie. It tastes great and its adhesive qualities make a good replacement for Super Glue.

Personally, I wouldn't tweak it with real cheese. There is a not-found-in-nature synergy when you mix Spam and Velveeta.

I love Spam as well - but I will have to try this when my husband is traveling, cause he doesn't!
Growing up, my sibs and I would slice spam and warm it in a fry pan - with a slice of Kraft American on top - Yumm!

Oh, the fun of the internet.

I was surfing for something else, and found this site.

When I was in college, I had a favorite spam recipe. I couldn't afford anthing else, except maybe tuna casserole and chicken livers. i couldn't resist sharing this recipe. Here it is.

A cheap hamburger bun, sliced in half
A thick slice of span
A thick slice of onion
A slice of tomatoe
Pepper to taste ( already salty enough)

Butter the bun, broil for a little while to brown it til it has a nice brown toast to it.

Place spam, onion and tomato (in that order) on the bun.

Place this under broiler for a minute or less. Delicious. lol.

email me, and update me on your opinion.

Oh wow, I never thought I'd run across my mom's spam recipe on the internet...thought I'd google my mom's name and see what popped up, and wouldn't you know, it was about my favorite treat...Spam Pie. (She even got credited for it) At least something famous came out of the metropolis of Sterling City.

Andi Wauer is my mom, and its funny I should find this recipe. It's a running joke at our house to pass a can of spam back and forth all year (birthday present, christmas, etc) because I don't like spam one bit. But I don't mind the spam pie.

How great that you stopped by, Andi Wauer's child/ren!
Thank you for the funny story about passing the Spam around, too!

This is so close to a recipe my family adored in the 50's and I've tried to find it, not written anywhere in my family recipe boxes, just memorized by my mother.
We used evap. milk, I think maybe 3/4 cup, melted the cheese in the milk, added the gr pepper & onion (we used scallions), layered the spam first, potatoes, then poured the milk/cheese mixture over, covered with top crust and baked. Then we took a can of condensed mushroom soup and mixed the remaining evap milk with it, heated it and used it as a sauce. Yum!!! Thank you so much, I can adapt your recipe easily.

my mother had a recipe for an entree-style pie that had chunks of Spam, diced potatoes, some sort of creamy sauce that I believe had cheese in it, and a double crust made of pre-made pie crusts. It sounds strange, but it really was a very good pie, and I don't normally like Spam. It was almost the ultimate comfort food. I'm not sure, but I think my mother got it from some sort of regional cookbook that she has now lost or thrown away. There is nothing like it on the Spam website. If anyone has this recipe, or anything close, I would be so dad is waiting anxiously for a piece!
