This recipe was entered in the Spam Cook-Off at the Central Florida Fair this year. I am posting it here for those who were unable to get a copy at the fair.

Spam-Tastic Luau Fried Rice

3 tbsp vegetable oil
3 eggs, beaten
1 tsp mined fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup diced Spam Classic
6 cups steamed rice, cooled completely (leftover rice is best)
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/4 cup grated carrot
1/4 cup diced orange (or yellow) bell pepper
1/4 cup diced green bell pepper
1/2 cup pineapple tidbits
1 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1/4 cup toasted, sliced almonds
4 tbsp thinly sliced green onion

Heat 1 tbsp of oil in large skillet or wok. Add beaten eggs and keep moving while cooking so that eggs scramble into small pieces.
Remove from pan.
Add 1 tbsp oil to pan. Sauté spam for 30 seconds on high heat, until browned.
Remove from pan.
Reduce heat to medium. Add another tbsp oil ,add onion, carrot, bell peppers and pineapple to pan and cook approximately 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add rice and stir constantly until rice is heated through, about 2 minutes. Add spam to rice.
