Spam French Fry Casserole

This recipe was a hit with our family; including the cook, because it was just mix and bake – easy. Serve it with a green vegetable or salad for color and texture. I purchased store brand French fries with no added fat; I think drained, chunked home-canned potatoes would be just as easy and delicious.
I found the recipe on a store-brand box of cornflakes I had purchased for a cookie recipe. I also use the crushed cornflakes to coat pork chops before baking to use up the box quickly.
This is one of those recipes that calls for a '50's casserole dish, like this pink gooseberry pyrex.

  1. Wow, I haven't had SPAM in years but your recipes make want to try it. Your recipes are very straight forward for a single guy, too. It takes make me back to when my daddy would fry SPAM or thick pieces of baloney to serve as the main course. I loved it as a kid and thought it was a mighty fine meal.
