This is my best & cheapiest recipe that will serve a crowd and gosh darn delicious. Don't be afraid of the mystery meat in the can. I happen to love spam and it's the National Meat of Hawaii. Take a little walk on the wild side and try out my fried rice recipe. You won't be disappointed. —Sherri Williams
