SPAM is not a terrible idea. Spam tastes delicious and is pretty sweet too. The problem is it might be a bit too salty for fried rice, but that can maybe be remedied by using low sodium spam.

It really isn't a terrible idea, but as someone who has an entire gamer's worth of salt in him at any time, I don't think I ever would.

It's just, SPAM is the one meat I can think of that would be good in fried rice that you don't have to cook

I like spam with white rice, but I don't think I'd like it in fried rice

Hawaiian-style spam fried rice is really good in my experience, tho I've never had it homemade.

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of spam in a non-Python context is this.

That's horrifying.

Out on the islands, Spam was the only protein available during the Pacific War, and the locals learned to make it five thousand different ways. In west coast Navy housing you run into a mishmash of Filipino, Hawaiian, and Mexican cooking that means if you eat dinner at a friend's you have a nonzero chance of eating teriyaki spam and rice (macaroni salad on the side if they actually lived in the islands)

Because of the large Japanese-American minority in Hawaii you run into some interesting meetings between Spam and Japanese food, e.g. Spam musubi.

I googled "Hawaiian-style fried rice" and was disappointed to find that pineapple wasn't a standard ingredient, but maybe I'm the gross one here

Quick question - is this still the fried rice thread or has it become the spam* thread?

*The food, not any of these other things**.

**Well... I guess you could consider it a variety of communication spam.

Alright I got a big whack of leftover rice, and I'm gonna fry it tonight. Fatty pork chops, sweet onions, oyster sauce and a little sweet wine in the eggs. Here we go.

This is a goddamn mess. I added the eggs too soon and the moisture turned it into kind of a frittata. Shit.

I know most fried rice recipes I've ever seen talk about making a big hole in the middle of your rice in the wok and letting the eggs cook while mixing it in, and I like, never enjoy that process ever. It always happens as you describe AV. I've gotten to the point where I just cook the eggs on the side and mix them in at the end. That way there's no weird texture/mixing problems, and the eggs stay bright yellow for good visual pop.

I've tried cooking eggs sequentially in my wok, but yeah, I've generally had better success cooking them in a second frying pan.
