How can I cook a can of Hormel® Mary Kitchen® hash so it gets crispy?
Show Answer
Food Prep, Safety & Storage

It takes patience to get crispy hash. In a heavy skillet (preferably not a non-stick skillet) over medium heat, spread the hash in an even layer and do not disturb for 5 minutes. With a spatula, lift up a corner of the hash to see if it has developed a crust. If it hasn’t, cook a few minutes longer. If it has developed a crust, turn over the hash and cook 3 to 4 minutes or until a crispy crust has formed on both sides.

What do SPAM® products taste like?
Show Answer
Food Prep, Safety & Storage

In a word: magic. Of course, we’re biased, and if you haven’t had the good fortune of tasting magic before, that won’t tell you much.

What we’re trying to say is, SPAM® products have a unique taste that’s unlike anything else out there. That taste also depends on the SPAM® variety and how you prepare it. Grilling, baking, or frying will result in different textures and subtleties. So the best way to answer this question is ultimately to try it for yourself.
