Luncheon Meat Egg Sandwich

I made a decadently delicious luncheon meat egg sandwich (spam sandwich) earlier in the week. These sandwiches taste as good as they look! They are inexpensive to make and took me under 20 minutes (if I don’t have to take pictures ;p).  I made two versions, the first version comes with luxuriously thick chunks of scrambled egg, resembling the type of spam sandwiches served at Hong Kong tea cafe (茶餐厅).

The second version of the luncheon meat egg sandwich simply replaces the scrambled egg with a fried egg and a sliced cheese which makes this sandwich doubly sinful and delicious.

Version 1: Made with scrambled eggs.

I’m using the Ma Ling brand of luncheon meat which comes in a round tin. Cut 1 large round slice per sandwich so that each slice fills up the bread. I’m making two sandwiches so I only needed two slices. I’m keeping the rest of the luncheon meat for an upcoming recipe.

Note: If you are using Spam or other brands which comes in a rectangular tin, position the spam block upright (the bigger surface area) so that you get one large slice that can fill up the slice of bread.

Grease the pan and make a sunny side fried egg (pictured above). I prefer the yolk to be set but not overcooked, so I made an “over-easy” egg by flipping over the sunny egg to rest for about 8 seconds on the hot pan. Let the egg stay longer in the pan if you want the yolk to be fully cooked.
