Spam & Egg Breakfast Sandwich

I'm the advertisers' dream: I see something in a commercial and I want to try it. For the last few weeks I've been wanting to try McD's new Angus burgers: alas, the burger was very disappointing. The fries, luckily, were amazing. Same happened with Au Bon Pain's watermelon lemonade: so not worth the $4!

Then last night when I was watching Top Chef, they briefly mentioned Spam. When I woke up today I went across the street to buy Diet Pepsi and eggs and then spotted a container of Spam. We used to eat Spam in Moscow and use the leftover can as a planter ;) Oh the memories. I picked up a container of Spam and decided to make Spam & Egg Breakfast sandwich.



All you need to do is brown a few slices of Spam, saute some white onions and make one egg over easy. Layer all ingredients on a piece of bread, add a bit of cayenne and fresh basil. You are ready to eat!

Olga, we had to eat Spam during the war years when I was a child. I know that it's very popular in some places (Hawaii) but I ate a lifetimes worth 60+ years ago:-). I bequeath my share of Spam to whomever wants it. Have a great day.

I haven't eaten Spam in years. Next time I go to the store and see it, I'll buy a can. I want to try your recipe, which looks and sounds really good. ;-)

Oh MG, when I was a kid, my mom used to make this on a special occasion. back then in Indonesia, this was a very expensive thing, and was a fancy thing to cook. So funny that I never bought this since I came to the U.S. Not sure why, but you know what? I am going to, because looking at that photos of yours make my mouth water so much. I am going to buy this, and make something.

My wife doesn't like like cold spam, but she loves fried spam and eggs.

I grew up eating fried bologna sandwiches with eggs and fried spam for breakfast bring back memories.

Hey, what's spam in Russian? I can't remember if I had it there.

My neighbour would be over to your place in a flash sniffing that Spam. Me, I ate enough of it when I was growing up and swore when I had a say over what was put in front of me, It would not be Spam!! Good picture though!!

I ate so much Spam growing-up. I laughed out loud when I saw that you bought a can of Spam and fried it with eggs! I used to eat it all the time. I can't say that I have had spam in over 30 years!
Just last night, we were talking about eating Spam growing-up. What a coincidence to see it here on your blog today.

I think spam brings back memories for everyone. =) A lot of the foreign exchange students at our school from Korea, eat a sandwich like this everyday for lunch. It always looks so tasty!

I love that you woke up in the morning to buy Diet Pepsi and eggs :)

Hope you had a great weekend, cheers!

I personally find Spam pretty scary and have never eaten it, but gee whiz you make it look yummy! My husband eats the French equivalent - it's his guilty pleasure. Wonder if I should offer this to him?

*sigh* I will always have a soft spot for Spam. It's just so freaking good! hehe.

Congrats, you made Spam un-disgusting. You have no idea how surprised I am. This looks amazing and I'm no fan of Spam and eggs sunny-side up.

Genius.

I love Spam!! My friends all make fun of me and think it's so gross... until I make them an egg and spam breakfast sandwich! They then proceed to tell me that's the only spam they'll ever eat... is fried with an egg. Lol.

I always have a can of spam in my pantry. It's my college staple. :P
