Spam and Onion Sandwiches

Total Time
Prep 5 mins

Made this for lunch on our packpacking trip. None of the ingredients need refridgerated, so it is easy to take backpacking and camping, etc. I usually horde the little mustard and margarine packets from fast food restaurants if we are hiking in.

I followed the instructions the first time with great results. We're not ashamed of Spam in this household! I also tried it again, leaving the onion raw.I think I like it even better that way. It added a nice little crunch (and extremely potent breath, but what the heck). Spam is such a happy thing!

I added a fried egg to mine and used mayo instead of mustard. I LOVE SPAM. In fact I am an card carrying member of the Official Spam Fan Club and enjoy all of the benefits that bares.
