Still, it was not a huge success. There were only three entries. Not many daring people out there when it comes to SPAM.
Anastasia's was actually good. She hid her SPAM inside a coconut rice. It really was yummy. Mine wasn't bad but I wouldn't say it was good either.
I even bought the low sodium Spam but .... there's only so much you can do to hide that taste.
I tried to cook my entry in blocks. I had hash browns, my version of succotash (without the corn and benas) yeah, I know, that's succotash but I use tomatoes and zucchini, garlic and a few other ingredients to make my version, and then the SPAM.
So, my meal was to be multi-layered, you start on the bottom with the crispy hashbrowns, then you add the succotash and top it off with a few tidbits of SPAM.
Everyone thought I should have tried to hide the SPAM inside something.
But, I guess I've been watching too much CHOPPED - I was thinking that wouldn't be embracing the ingredient ;D
Oh well, you can't win 'em all.
