Have we ever got some Spamtastic recipes

Bold flavors! Fresh tastes! Strange smells! As you’ve probably noticed, Part Three of the grocery shopping series (http://www.heraldnet.com/stories/07/06/12/100loc_a1groceries001.cfm) is all about trying new things. And boy, have we got some new things for you.

Inspired by Burger King, which recently began offering Spam meals at its restaurants in Hawaii (http://www.heraldnet.com/stories/07/06/12/100wir_a2spam001.cfm), we’d like to present a few dishes from Spam.com (http://www.spam.com) that are guaranteed to tickle your palate, and possibly your gag reflex.

Crunchy Spam sticks: Slices of pink pork loaf breaded with flour and potato flakes, then baked. Sort of like french fries, only less greasy and with a squishy surprise in the center.

Spam in a blanket: Using can-fresh slices instead of sausage gives this old breakfast standby a unique gelatinous twist.

Spam cupcakes: Made from a mixture of Spam, eggs, oatmeal and milk, then delicately glazed and garnished with instant mashed potatoes. The perfect way to ensure you’ll never be asked to bake goodies for your child’s class again.

Step away from the Doppler radar. The FBI is investigating reports that someone in the Midwest gave the National Weather Service fake information that caused it to issue unnecessary warnings (http://www.heraldnet.com/stories/07/06/12/100wir_a3weather001.cfm). We’re guessing the guilty party is trying to exact revenge for all those days when forecasters predicted sunshine that turned out to be visible only from space.
