I love it when my husband comes home from being on the road. Why? Because he loves to cook and experiment in the kitchen.
Coffee is always first thing that gets made in the morning no matter whether he is home or not.
I was supposed to be making breakfast this morning, but he came in and took over. On the menu was Spam and eggs. It’s one of our camping breakfasts, but for some reason he opened a can of spam yesterday, and we needed to finish it today.
SPAM & EGGS AMPED UP
- 1/2 can of spam cut somewhere between minced and diced
- 3 large brown eggs
- 1 tablespoon water
- hot wing sauce
- 2 cloves of garlic, grated
- crushed, dried basil
- crushed, dried oregano
- crushed, dried thyme
- (NOTE: These three herbs came from my garden pots and were dried in my dehydrator. I like them better than store bought because they have more flavor.)
- shredded cheese of your choice (We used a Mexican blend with pepper jack and cheddar.)
- Fry the Spam with the grated garlic in a dry, hot cast iron pan until it forms a crispy skin. As the Spam cooks, it releases grease and oil which coats the pan so the eggs won’t stick. Let it fry for approximately 15 minutes at a medium heat.
- Crack the eggs into a bowl and whip with a whisk. Add about a tablespoon of water to the eggs and whisk. Add the basil, oregano, and thyme to the eggs and mix. Let sit while the Spam cooks. (The Spam adds enough salt to the meal so DON’T add salt.)
- When the Spam has a crunchy skin, add the eggs to the pan and scramble. Turn the temp down and place the shredded cheese on the top of the mixture. Then, cover for a couple of minutes so the cheese melts.
- Serve with toast or some type of coffee cake or breakfast bread.
