Grillked SPAM, egg, and cheese sandwich

SPAM is a divisive food. I like SPAM just fine, but I know a lot of people who would not eat it if you paid them to. I suspect that they have never actually tried SPAM, they are just put off by its processed nature. The actual flavor is unquestionably ham/pork-like, but a bit saltier (although you can buy low-sodium SPAM, if so inclined). It’s best when it’s browned a bit on the stove. SPAM musubi is also okay, as long as it’s not the only sushi you’re having.

I like a grilled SPAM-egg-cheese sandwich for breakfast or lunch, but most recently have made them for lunch a few times. I don’t really want to have to cook when I get out of bed in the morning, and it requires just enough effort to cross that line most days. I put a couple of slices of SPAM in the pan to brown, and then crack an egg into a silicone egg ring that makes the perfect round fried egg for sandwiches. I shoot for over-easy on the egg, because I like a runny yolk, and I put a lot of freshly ground black pepper on it. Once those elements are ready, I butter a couple of slices of bread, and combine the browned SPAM, the fried egg, and a slice of American cheese and grill until the bread is golden and the cheese has metled a bit. It is incredibly satisfying when you are hungry, and fills you up.
