"You've got to try this! It converts any SPAM® or grits-haters that may be lurking in your house. Put this together the night before, and sleep in late!" — MRS PAYSON

1 (12 ounce) can
fully cooked luncheon meat (such as SPAM®), grated
1 (14.5 ounce) can
1 (8 ounce) container
1 (16 ounce) package
shredded Cheddar cheese
I used bacon flavored Spam and it came out great! I used more cheese than the recipe called for, next time I won't put so much on top. It was a bit too much. Also it would be really good with flavored diced tomatoes (maybe with green chile or jalapeno) and some jack cheese instead or in addition too. Overall, will definitely make again.
This shocked me! It was really quite tasty. I was originally put off by the SPAM idea, but was able to "lighten" this up a bit, to about 220 calories for a decently sized portion. I used 2% milk cheddar cheese, fat free plain yogurt, and turkey SPAM instead of regular SPAM. Also, I had fresh tomatoes on hand so I diced those up instead of using canned, and just microwaved my grits because I had a few packets in the pantry. I would make this again but my husband wasn't even interested in trying it. He said he was put off by the look of it.
I used a 10 oz. can of diced tomatoes with green chilies and 8 oz of regular greek yogurt. I like the idea of this casserole, but the flavor was not to my liking. I guess I'm just not a big Spam fan. Next time I will try it with bacon instead and regular diced tomatoes.
My family enjoyed this. I made it exactly as the recipe was written. I think next time I will use a little less cheese and a little more spam. Or perhaps just add a little bacon.
