Crispy fried SPAM, an egg, curly scallions, and a mayo-Sriracha spread come together to cure all your morning woes in this awesome SPAM Breakfast Sandwich!
SPAM. I know, you guys. I know. What is going on here!?
I actually went 48 years without trying this stuff. Without wanting to try it! Lol. But then a reader suggested Paul and I try it as part of our Weird Food Combos show on Mondays. Challenge accepted! AS SEEN HERE.
Although eating it for the first time with Cherrios and milk was definitely not the best introduction! ACK. But a bunch of other readers on Facebook (along with Paul), said I needed to fry it up like a sausage patty. Then, that same week, I heard about this breakfast sandwich served at a restaurant called Eggslut in Los Angeles.
Never ever one to resist an awesome breakfast sandwich, I got my butt in the kitchen and made it that same day. And loved it.
In case you don’t know, SPAM is precooked canned meat. Sounds gross, right? But honestly, is it? It’s really just blended ham. We eat canned tuna, we eat canned chicken, canned salmon for salmon patties, and I love bologna.
I’ve since made these sandwiches a bunch of times, and also fried up some chopped SPAM with scrambled eggs. It’s yummy. The regular SPAM is way too salty, though, so I’ve using the low-sodium kind.
These breakfast sandwiches are easy, quick, and tasty. And I’m told a great cure for a hangover.

How To Make This SPAM Sandwich Recipe
SPAM Breakfast Sandwich
- 1 scallion , cut into 3-inch pieces, then sliced thin lengthwise
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1/2 tablespoon Sriracha hot sauce
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 slice low-sodium SPAM
- 1 large egg , over-easy or scrambled, season with salt and pepper
- 1 Hawaiian roll , lightly toasted
- Place scallions in a small bowl with very cold water to shock them. Let sit until you see them curl, then drain from water and pat dry.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the mayo and Sriracha until combined. Set aside.
- In a medium skillet, heat both oils over medium-high. Once sizzling, carefully place SPAM in the pan; cook for about 2 minutes per side until crispy. Transfer to a towel-lined plate.
- (In the same pan, cook an egg to your preference.)
- Spread the mayo-Sriracha mixture on both sides of a warmed roll. Place the fried SPAM, egg, and curled scallions on one half of the roll and top with the other half.
- Eat, enjoy, and don’t fear the SPAM! Ha.
