I kind of hate to admit that I use Spam occasionally. I had a half can of it in my freezer and had to think of a way to use it up. Spam has a few more carbs than ham, but you could easily substitute ham in this recipe. I find it's often cheaper to buy a can of Spam to use in place of ham rather than to have to buy a large chunk of ham and have it sitting around. I don't like using ham that's been frozen because it loses all its water when defrosted and becomes a bit tough and dry, so when I need just a small amount for a recipe, I'll sometimes turn to Spam. Shhh. Don't tell anyone.
