My take was that it was like deep fried Spam.

Take care,
You are correct Mike, Scrapple is everything but the oink, but mostly ground organ meats. However it is not deep fried (unless one is really intent on having heart failure ) It is formed into a greyish looking loaf which is sliced and then fried crispy on the griddle, it really needs no additional oil. I have found a turkey scrapple that is a reasonable substitute. Still it is just an occasional treat.
