I can hear you thinking . . . Spam and Beans? What is that girl doing now! And I fed it to company no less, as one of a pair of casseroles. It was delicious. Absolutely delicious! One of my guests was a real Spam lover as well, so that was win/win for me. Delicious and popular!
It's not much to look at, but don't let that fool you. This is one of those recipes where you will definitely not want to judge the book by its cover.
This is a fabulous store cupboard meal. I always have tins of Spam and Beans in my cupboard, which means I can whip up this delicious casserole quickly and easily. There is also cheese on top, which kind of sinks down into the beans while it is baking, making it even more scrumptious.
I wish I could show you some of it spooned out onto a plate, but Todd doesn't like me to photograph food when we have people here. He thinks it's rude. He has a point. Afterwards there was none left to photograph, so alas, you only get to see it in the dish.
I do hope you will give it a go however and that when you do you will agree that it makes for a simple and a delicious supper. Some crusty bread, a salad, and Bob's your Uncle!
