SPAMbled Eggs and SPAM Fries

We're now at at that strange time in between Christmas and New Year. I believe the official name that has been coined is "twixtmas". We've all eaten and drank ourselves silly and after days of slaving over a hot stove just want to get back to some kind of food normality. The recipes I'm sharing today are super quick and easy to make and use an iconic ingredient that over the years has been maligned, celebrated and musicalised. We're talking SPAM - chopped pork and ham. It was one of my absolute favourite school dinners back in the day in the form of Spam Fritters and the two recipes below give a new twist on a traditional family favourite. 


SPAMBLED™ eggs (serves 4)

Ingredients
1 x 200g tub or can of SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham
3 x large eggs
3 x tablespoons milk
2 x spring onions - finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
15g butter

Method
1. Beat the eggs, milk and salt and pepper together in a mixing bowl.
2. Fry cubes of SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham, turning until golden in a dry frying pan. Keep warm.
3. Melt butter in a frying pan on a medium hot heat, sauté the spring onions lightly then add the egg mixture. 
4. Scramble with a wooden spatula until still soft and glossy.
5. Add SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham and mix.
6. Serve with extra black pepper.

    1. SPAM seems to be a bit of a marmite food. I'm guessing your husband is a lover.

  7. You may have just convinced me to try spam again. Once when I was little I insisted my mum make spam fritters after watching an episode of ready steady cook. My mum isn't the best cook and it was a complete disaster. I haven't touched the stuff since! The spambled eggs look awesome though. I love jazzing up the humble egg.
