Cook SPAM, win money

Posted By on Tue, Sep 6, 2011 at 3:16 PM

Hey! Want to show off your creativity and perhaps win a little money, too? The folks who make SPAM say give them a great regionally-inspired dish and they may give you a $1000 prize. No joke. Details on the jump.

What would be considered Arkansas regional? SPAM cheese dip? SPAM fried pies? SPAM and chocolate gravy? I got it — a SPAM Reuben. The mind wanders. You have been SPAMmed.

From the SPAM folks:

The Challenge: Using SPAM® products, Arkansas fans are encouraged to submit a regionally inspired, delicious and creative recipe to Dish This! Recipe Exchange on by Sept. 26 and let fellow fans decide if it lives up to regional noteworthiness! To help get creativity flowing, here are two regionally infused SPAM® dishes:
SPAM®-balaya Jambalaya
Hawaiian SPAM® piggies in a blanket

The top rated regionally inspired dish, as rated by fans, will win the $1,000 grand prize with the four runner-ups each taking home a 1-year supply of SPAM®. While supplies last, every complete, original recipe that has been approved for posting will receive a code for a free gift, so it’s in fans’ best interest to act fast!

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
