{Recipe}: What's in a Can?

Ah, Spam. The glorious canned meat that so many Minnesotans scatter into their eggs, pasta dishes and casseroles.
Not only do we have the honor of being the home state if this midwest staple, but we also get to meander through a free museum covering 16,500 sq. feet dedicated to the stuff.

Now, as a Northern Belle, I know all about spam. It's my go to meat for any and all hot dishes for any church banquet. I remember the first time I ate it. Surprisingly it was only a couple of months ago. Before then, it had always been a taboo object that I never wanted anywhere near my plate. Then I tried TURKEY SPAM. And I fell in love.

Seriously guys the stuff is amazing. Now don't get me wrong, I love my grass fed, grain free meat just as much as the next gal. But there just something "homey" about Spam.

So without further ado, I introduce my meal of the moment: 


2 Eggs
1/4 c of Spam (I used Spurkey! You know, Spam turkey..)
Seasoning, if you you so desire. 
Veggies/Cheese if you want (I just wanted cheese on mine today).


Heat a skillet to Medium heat. Take your spam and cut it into small cubes (think sugar cubes or cheese cubes) and place in the skillet. I like I brown mine, but the recipe I went off of didn't say to do that. 

Next whisk your eggs, add your seasonings etc, and throw that bad boy mixture right into the skillet of spam. Let it cook (obviously) to your liking and BADABING. You've got yourself a masterpiece.

Now, proceed to stuff your face like I did so I don't feel like a pig. Of course, Northern Belles only do that in private. And amongst close friends. :)
