We were doing a Hawaiian-themed lunch at work and I picked this recipe because not only did it look good, it seemed like it would be easy and quick enough to do on a week night. I found some sweet pork sausage at the Asian Market - it wasn't called lup cheong, but I think it was the Filipino version of the same thing. It didn't slice well, so I squeezed it out of the casing and it worked fine. I cooked the rice a day ahead, so that it would be cool and ready to go. I read all of the comments and used a 20-oz can of pineapple tidbits. I cut the SPAM in very small pieces (not much experience with it, and kinda grossed out by it) and fried it and the sausage until very crisp. I also fried the rice quite a bit longer than the recipe said so it would also be crispy. The next day, I stirred in the green onions right before I nuked the rice. I have to say, despite my trepidation over SPAM, that it was very, VERY tasty, and was the hit of the potluck! There was not a single grain of rice left, and everyone, bar none, asked me for the recipe. I will make this again!
