    It's the only one I buy. Cut into fingers in a wrap with mushroom and egg. Can't beat it.

    Brings back memories, but haven't found any as good as Compo from the 80's.

    What!? Sir! Do not, diss the food of the gods that is, Bacon Grill!

    Seriously, it is fantastic and remember eating it with a fondness that soldiers of a previous generation have for tinned sausages. I love it and get funny looks from my kids and the wife when I buy it, you know the "You're not buying that again? It's all hoof and nails!" Don't care.

    When fried with some onion and Worcestershire sauce...😛😛😛

    My daughter and my grandkids all love Spam as much as I do. Sliced and fried (whether plain or topped with melted cheese) diced into scrambled eggs, or into baked beans, or into mac & cheese, ot into grits, or into hash browns, etc. There's really no bad way to serve it.

    Bacon Grill - the only BG that has earned its place in my heart (mainly clogged arteries - but hey! it tastes great!) - a fried BG wrap for breakfast Mmmmmmmm!

    I've been for the messages, and it's entirely the fault of this thread, I bought a can of Bacon Grill. Guess what HWMBLT's getting for his tea tonight ? :rolleyes:

    Thick sliced, battered and fried, chips and homemade mushy peas. Probably slathered in HP sauce too.
    He's as lean as a whippet and walks miles everyday, I think the occasional BG calorie bomb's not likely to do him any grief :)

    Sounds like my maternal grandmother. Her diet was bacon fat (just the fat mind you) and biscuits and molasses; or similar. Not her entire diet, but her preferred foods, and yet she stayed lean and generally healthy all her life.

    And there was I convinced barbel had good taste!

    I'd rather eat deep fried white pudding. With a bucket of tap water on hand of course!

    That looks pretty good. My 'arrangement' of Spam doesn't resemble it in any way whatsoever.

    Takes Spam to a whole new level, looks top notch.

    Picked up some cans of the Lidl stuff on the way back from my tool guy at Colne and the lads and I had a can for breakfast this morning.

    They had it fried in sandwiches but being me I had it on a crust, then a slice of fried bread, then the three slices of BG, then a egg fried until the white was cooked, then burst the yellow so it spread all over the White and flipped over to cook for a few seconds all topped with Tescos surprisingly pleasent fruity sauce and another slice of bread. All compressed until you can get it into your mush with out dislocating your jaw. Easily as good as the stuff twice as dear.

    To make up for that I had porridge for the midday meal.
