SPAM® APPRECIATION WEEK & A GIVEAWAY
There’s a lot of food snobbery about tinned (canned) meat, and people can get quite sniffy about it; but, most tinned meats are usually much higher in meat content than ready meals and fast food, and I think they get a bad rap. SPAM® is one such tinned meat that is often the butt of anti-tinned meat humour, and I am always puzzled as to why this is, when a tin of original SPAM®, as in the chopped Pork and Ham SPAM®, has a whopping 90% of meat in it, and NO, it’s not the ‘scrapings’ or ‘useless bits’ of pork or ham that go into this tinned meat, but is primarily high quality pork shoulder meat and ham. So, when I was approached by SPAM® to create a simple recipe for SPAM® Appreciation Week, I was keen to join in with my SPAM® and Eggs Breakfast Sandwich.
As well as my recipe idea for SPAM® and Eggs Breakfast Sandwich, I am also offering a SPAMTASTIC™ chance to win a ‘SPAM® Sizzle Pack’ for one your lucky reader (please see prize image below).
