    PaulaG's Note:

    The other day, I was doing grocery shopping. Walked down the isle with the Spam and it called my name. How long had it been since I had bought a can of Spam? In a moment of weakness, I picked up the can (less sodium of course) and placed it in the shopping cart. Once home, I pondered what to do with it. With an abundance of fresh tomatoes on the kitchen counter this sounded like a logical choice. The beauty of this recipe is you can make them 1 or 2 at a time and save the sliced Spam in the refrigerator for another day or make all 6 at once and share with friends and family. :)

      Growing up fried Spam sandwich was something that you ate when you went camping because canned meat did not need refrigeration. So just as I grew up and changed thought I would taste how the Spam sandwich had grown up and changed. Must say both DH and I were pleased with how Paula helped the fried Spam sandwich to grow up. The Parmigiano-Reggiano broiled tomatoes and fresh basil not only make this fried Spam sandwich more grown up but they add a very delicious new layer that is truly a wonderful new twist. Made as written using thin English muffins. Thanks for the post.

      I haven't had Spam in years! I actually found a 1 serving foil pouch of Spam that worked perfectly for this recipe. I have to admit, my taste in food has changed since I was a kid....but that is not the fault of the recipe. The basil and tomato were nice additions. I think it would be good with a poached egg on top too. Thanks for sharing....made for ZWT7.

      Who knew spam could taste like this? This was easy to make and now there are smaller pouches of spam available. The basil/ tomatoes are the star. I toasted the english muffins on the paninni maker. Thanks for sharing the recipe & twisting my arm to rediscover what I considered a camping staple only made much better. Made for ZWT7.
