Don’t Hate Me ’cause You Ain’t Me

…except that I almost hate myself for this little concoction. You’ll see.
After polishing off an entire loaf of bread by myself over the span of about 54 hours, I decided to try eating significantly fewer grain products. Variety is the spice of life, after all. Unfortunately, I seem to be doomed to compulsive behavior. My dumb brain thought, “Hey – if cutting back on bread is my goal, why not start with cutting out ALL grain!” Idiot that I am, my fridge is now stocked with plenty o’ meats and veggies, but all I can crave right now is cheesecake frozen yogurt with chunks of real cheesecake from Yogurtland. This calls for a distraction: Let the kitchen experimentations BEGIN!
I’m not sure how long I’ve had these tins of SPAM Lite in my cupboard, but it never goes bad, right?!?! Okay, so I sliced up about a third of my little tin o’ SPAM, fried it up, and here’s where I got crazy. Instead of doin’ the same ol’ SPAM ‘n’ eggs I so enjoy, I got creative (read: LAZY) and decided to cook those eggs on the SPAM…wait for it…over easy. That’s right. It’ll be over. It’ll be easy. Genius! Sick, sick genius.
Now we come to the part of near-self-loathing: I rather enjoyed Spam-n-eggs over easy. In fact, it may just be my new favorite thing. Shudder if you must (I did), but I can’t deny how delicious I found this dish. Come on, who doesn’t absolutely MELT anytime easy-cooked egg yolks run their golden sweetness ALL OVER the plate and any unsuspecting food in their flow?! It’s almost erotic. You’re even drooling, aren’t you? 😉

Try It Yourself:

SPAM (I used about 1/3 of a tin of SPAM Lite) cut into chunks, then fried

2 eggs, yolks unbroken

With SPAM still fryin’ in the pan, add eggs on top and continue frying until egg whites are set (stir around the whites to break ’em up and cook them all the way through, but protect the yolks as much as possible).

Enjoy alone or over a few slices of toast – and a good helping of self-loathing.
