A few months ago Khanh and I bought reduced sodium SPAM from Costco. And we all know, if you buy anything from Costco you’ve got a ton of it. So what do you do with all this spam? One way I like to have it is with breakfast. It’s so simple and you don’t have to add any extra grease because the spam will cook in it’s own fat. Khanh doesn’t normally eat breakfast so this meal is just for one. I have one slice of toast. I like to eat Alvarado St. Bakery California Style bread because each slice is only 90 calories, 15g of carbs and has 5g of protein. Two slices of spam and a poached egg. A lot of people think making a poached egg is difficult but it’s not! I only started making them a couple weeks ago and now I’m a pro! I prepare everything to finish at about the same time.
1 slice of toast
2 slices of spam
1 tbs white vinegar
dash of salt
Crack your egg and put it into a shot glass or some kind of small container (I like using a 1/3 cup measuring cup because it’s got a handle). Fill a medium saucepan about 3/4 full with water and bring to boil then lower down to a simmer. Put the spam in a nonstick fry pan at medium-high heat and let it sit while you prepare you egg. Pour the white vinegar in the pot of simmering water and throw in the dash of salt. Stir it with a whisk and make sure you’ve got the water whirling around quite a bit (this is the most important part of poaching your egg) and pour the egg in the direction of the whirling water. You’ll see the egg white wrapping around your yolk. Let it sit for 3 minutes. During the three minutes flip your spam and put your bread in the toaster. When the three minutes is up take out the egg with a slotted spoon and put it on top of your spam and toast. Enjoy!
P.S. I’ll try to put up a video of how to poach an egg at some point. 🙂
