“AND WHO SHALL CARVE THE CHRISTMAS SPAM?”
So my son-in-law was joking about using Spam (eek!) for our Sunday brunch. I was serving Eggs Benedict with our killer cheese sauce and wanted to use the canned meat from my three-month supply instead of buying ham or bacon. (There’s so much shame in using this product, I’m glad he pointed out the Oliver Twist humor.)
diced green onion
Killer Cheese Sauce:
1 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup butter
8 oz. cream cheese
dash garlic salt
Melt sauce ingredients slowly over low heat and whisk until smooth.
1 can Spam
Slice Spam into thin strips and saute’ until edges are crispy. Toast English muffins. Top each muffin half with two slices of meat, poached or fried eggs, and grated cheese. Then spoon on a little warm cheese sauce and finish with diced tomato and green onion.
I wanted to take a picture of the finished product but there was no way to hold back the crowd. Almost everyone had seconds and my darling son-in-law, bless his heart, had thirds.
