Here's a unique recipe that has been in my spouse's family for 3 generations. It was probably created during World War II as a new way to prepare SPAM®, which was widely used in that time of shortages and rationing. These open-faced sandwiches are delicious and economical and are loved by his entire family. They are great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

Don't be afraid people! Try these. You will be amazed at how good they are. I use my round hand chopper and finely chop the eggs and Spam at the same time. Then stir in everything else and you're ready to broil. The mixture keeps in the refrigerator for days so you can pop them in the broiler at the spur of the moment. Line the sheet pan with foil and you don't even have a pan to wash! Read More
