I haven’t tried it but if found a lot of good recipes online.  Someone uses it as a staple.

It was a special treat to have a spam sandwich when young. I loved it. Can't think of any other way I would eat it now except with scrambled eggs.

A lot of recipes I saw paired it with eggs or with eggs and rice.

Sometimes my mother would make spam and eggs for Sunday brunch when I was a child.

Which I think is why it’s so popular in Japan.  For years they had limited access to fresh meat.

I have. Long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away.

Well, actually it was circa 2012 or so. I probably should do some more if that's still relatively cheap. I have cooked using corned beef in the pre-pandemic era but with just about all meats skyrocketing in cost, we're shifting a lot more to rice and beans and flavorings instead.
