What says precooked, canned meat better than Spam, that infamous Hormel dish. Whether you eat it or not, really doesn’t change the fact that this meat option has been an important aspect of many a meals around the world. From family’s requiring cheap protein to supplying soldiers during WWII; from fried spam sandwich’s to sushi spam, you’ll find this treat all over the place. Included in the list of spam dishes out there to discover is this – spam, egg & rice.
Very simple in it’s structure; fry up a few slabs of spam, then fry an egg (keep the yolk super runny) before putting everything on a pile of rice. Ta da! Told you it was easy. With everything in your bowl, take your knife/fork/chopstick/finger and dice everything together. Almost like a ghetto version of bibimbap, it goes to show how much fun can be had when playing with your food. Certainly not an everyday meal, but I think you’d be hard pressed not to enjoy the eggy meat flavours.
Now..did I scare you off of spam yet?
