- push the onions to one side of the pan and add thinly sliced Spam.
- Fry Spam on one side for 2 minutes, flip, and lay the cheese on top and cook until the cheese melts.
- Toast the bread, and spread the mustard on one slice.
- Add the Spam/ cheese, pile the onions on top and close the sandwich.
- Serve with potato chips, a pickle and beer.
My teenaged son rated this recipe a ten. He loves spam for some reason, he usually likes to have it prepared with brown sugar, but this one was a hit for him. He told me that I could make this one again. It even tasted good to me.
DH wanted spam sandwiches for lunch and instead of making them the way I always do I thought "zaar" must have a good recipe. So off I went in search of one. This is the one that caught my eye. Boy am I glad I found it. He gave it a big thumbs up. I sliced the onion instead of dicing them and the mustard I used was stone ground. This is the way I think I will be making them in the future. Love them. What a great flavor for spam lovers. Thanks, Bill Hilbrich for posting.
I used Swiss instead of processed cheese, which may have been an error. Next time, I'll use processed. But, as every true Spamophile knows, you can't totally ruin any Spam recipe, no matter how hard you try!
