Crusty Spambake
Old recipe from 1965 Spam advertising

1/2 cup Kellogg's Corn Flake Crumbs
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1/8  tsp. ground cloves
1 12-oz. can Spam
2 tbsp. prepared mustard
pineapple slices
melted butter

Combine the Corn Flake Crumbs, brown sugar and cloves.

Cut Spam crosswise into eight slices. Spread both sides of slices with mustard, then coat generously with a flavor crust of the Corn Flake Crumbs mixture. Place Spam and pineapple slices individually in a foil-lined shallow baking pan; do not crowd. Brush pineapple slices with butter.

Baker in moderate oven (350˚F) 20 minutes. Serve on heated platter, placing a Spam slice on each pineapple slices. Add parsley, if desired. Yields four servings of two slices each.

 **********

 Hawaii consumes 7 million cans of Spam a year. There are only 1.42 million people currently living on the islands. Let that sink in.
