Spam dinner recipe (1943)

Full point value… no waste, no bone, no surplus fat

Broil or fry thick slices of Spam — or stud whole Spam with cloves and bake 20 minutes, basting with sauce: 1/2 tsp vinegar, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp prepared mustard, 1 tsp water. Serve with Lima (beans) and baked potato.

Hit for a hot night: Spam summer platter (1950)

See how easy

Stuffed celery: Mash cream cheese with sweet cream to give butter-like consistency; add grated onion, dash of Worcestershire; fill celery stalks and dust with paprika.

Stuffed tomatoes: Make tomato cups by slicing off top and removing coor; fill with shredded cabbage drenched with French dressing or mayonnaise.

With sliced Swiss cheese, bread, and appetizing Spam, dinner’s ready — and so’s the family.

Cold or hot, Spam hits the spot!
