My partner and I invented this recipe by accident one afternoon, when we thought there was 'no food left'! Don't underestimate the Spam™ - although it's average uncooked, when cooked it is almost undistinguishable from crispy bacon. Give it a try!

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the meat in the preheated skillet until it is golden brown and crispy. Remove from skillet and drain on paper towels. Cook the mushrooms in the same skillet until softened. Remove from skillet and set aside. Crack the eggs into the skillet and cook while stirring until they are cooked through and scrambled. Turn off the heat.

  • Divide the red leaf lettuce and baby spinach leaves between two large salad bowls. Top the salad greens with the fried luncheon meat, mushrooms and scrambled eggs. Sprinkle both salads with crumbled feta cheese, Parmesan cheese, chopped peanuts, and dill. Arrange the anchovy fillets across the top of the salads and drizzle two tablespoons of Ranch dressing on each serving. Garnish with croutons.

Made as written except that I got home with sardines instead of anchovies somehow. My review is not based on that error of mine though because well little fish take on the mighty big and bold fish taste and it was my least favorite part of the recipe. Leave the fish off altogether and you have one tasty flavorful salad. Honestly I feel fish has no place in this when you already have the salty SPAM. I added some tomatoes and red onion for color and used the cashews I already had on hand in place of the peanuts. Great salad but leave off the fish unless you absolutely love fish. It overpowers and I like fish. Read More

After looking at the recipe this is scary salty. Five of the ingredients are too salty. The Spam, anchovy, feta cheese, parmesan cheese, salted peanuts. I had to modify the recipe to balance it out with some cranberries and apples. With many people with high blood pressure I caution folks in making this recipe. TOO MUCH SALT!!!! Read More
