Seriously Spam? Winning recipes

As we were driving to the fairgrounds for our entries tonight, I told D it would be very ironic if I placed in Spam. I pour my heart and soul into dishes and keep losing. And, I put very little thought or effort into my Spam recipe. I didn't even try it. I hate Spam. I think it smells like catfood.

Needless to say, we were visited by the irony fairy as not only did Leelee place third with her Orange BBQ Spam Stir Fry, I placed third with my Spam Ravioli!

I know when I promised winning recipes, I certainly wasn't expecting the first round of recipes to be Spam!

Leelee's Orange BBQ Spam Stir Fry

1 can less salt Spam, diced
1 bag stir fry vegetables
1/2 C orange marmalde
1/2 C hoisin sauce
2 T soy sauce
1 T hot sauce
1 C chicken stock
brown rice

In a large skillet, stir fry the spam and veggies. In a large bowl, mix together the marmalade, hoisin, soy and hot sauces. Add in the chicken stock. Pour over the spam and veggie mix and heat through. Serve over brown rice.

Spam Ravioli
1 can less salt Spam
2 T tomato paste
1 T romano cheese
2 T chopped parsley
1 package wonton wrappers
1 jar spaghetti sauce

Boil a large pot of water.

In a food processor, combine Spam, tomato paste, cheese and parsley until smooth. Place 1 T of mixture in a wonton wrapper and seal the edges.

Drop ravioli in to the boiling water. Ravioli are done when they rise to the top.

Pour warm spaghetti sauce over the top and serve.
