How about an Easter Spam? !

Here's a yummy , low budget alternative to the traditional Easter Ham --- how about an Easter Spam? I found a recipe for "Baked Spam" in my recipe notebook from Miss Richard's 7th grade Home Ec class at Tamaqua Area Junior High -- and yes, we actually had to make this stuff and eat it (while wearing our aprons with gigantic rick rack that we made in the sewing portion of home ec) Anyhow, just in case some of you like your food to maintain the shape of a can, I thought I'd pass along the recipe exactly as I copied back in 7th grade (just for fun! -- hmmm, I think I'll put this delicacy out with the real ham on Easter Sunday!)

Baked Spam

Ingredients: 1 can spam 1 tsp mustard
whole cloves 1/2 tsp vinegar
1/3 cup brown sugar

I still have the cookbook I made my Mom for Mother's Day when I was in 5th grade. My favorite is the Chocolate Pie. Don't you just love finding things you made way back when?

I'll have to try the Easter Spam.
