  1. Melt butter in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Saute the onion in butter until soft. Mash up the slice of luncheon meat with a fork, and add it to the skillet. Cook for 2 or 3 minutes, until browned. Pour the egg into the skillet so that it covers all of the meat and onion. Cook until firm, then flip to brown the other side.
  2. Place the egg and meat onto one slice of the bread and top with cheese and tomato if desired. Place the other piece of bread on top. Bread can also be toasted first.

If you like spam you'll like it. One of the best spam and egg sandwich's I've had in a while.

It tastes like beefs

Great sandwich, quick to fix on a night when you get home and think oh no what's for dinner?!!!

Sooo bad for you, yet sooo good!

Not big Spam fans, but ~Taylor Ham~ worked really well. Kids loved this breakfast. Thanks!

Followed the recipe as written, toasted the bread (we used Arnold's Sandwich Thins). It was tasty, but I guess I'm not a huge Spam fan because I didn't love the flavor. I liked the tomato in it ...
