5 Delicious Vintage Recipes, #3

Spam salad spread is one of those recipes that you need to know how to make, especially if you are feeding an older generation. When I first heard of this Spam sandwich spread I thought of the ham spread my grandma used to make. I think it was called deviled ham salad spread? Does anyone remember?

Anyway, to me, it didn’t taste very good and I always hated eating it for lunch at grandma’s house. Luckily, she took pity on me and always made me a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, instead. That grandma, she was such a peach! I guess as I got older my tastes changed because I really enjoy this Spam salad, now.

I didn’t think I’d like this sandwich spread but guess what? I did because it’s AWESOME!



2 can(s) Spam, chopped or grated (12 oz each)

4-6 hard boiled Eggland’s Best eggs

3 celery stalks, chopped

3 carrots, grated

1/4 cup onion

1/4 cup Vlasic dill relish

1/2 cup grated Kraft cheese of your choice (i like sharp)

1 cup Duke’s mayonnaise, or more if you like.

salt & pepper to taste



1. Hard boil your eggs.

2. While they are boiling, chop or grate the Spam, celery, carrot, onion and cheese into a large bowl.

3. Add the chopped eggs, dill relish, mayo, salt, and pepper. Stir together and refrigerate.

4. Great spread on wheat bread with crispy lettuce or on crackers for an appetizer.


Quick Tip: I like to toss in some green onions. Yum!



A couple of weeks ago, my 15-year-old daughter begged me to make a pone of cornbread. I did and she took it in her lunch until it was gone. The kids asked her what it was! I was going to make pinto beans to go with it, but someone had my slow cooker and I couldn’t cook them while we were gone. I have finally gotten to the point where I can put a little of this and that together to make a good pone of cornbread. And I’m under 40!!!

Corn pone is simply corn bread that doesn’t have eggs and is usually shaped as an oval. There are actually special cast iron pans that have compartments that are shaped like ears of corn.

Lol all yall are asking what a pone is when it clearly has been explained what it is, pay attention people!!!!

The pone of bread is the whole cake not cut. You can also make biscuits in a pone or individual biscuits. Some people cut them. Others just break the pone and get how much they want. Breaking bread together.
