Seasoning :

  • Salt, coarsely grounded Black pepper and and Honey.  All to taste. ** Note : Just dash of everything, if U prefer a stronger intensity of an ingredient flavor, simply add a little extra of that ingredient/spice (no rocket scientific measurement here). Always taste your Seasoning !!!
METHOD

Potato Salad – Start by boiling both the Egg and Potato (season the water with Salt). Set aside to cool. Cut to desired size. Gently mix/toss all the Potato salad Ingredients in a large bowl. Season with Salt, Black pepper, Paprika and Lemon juice. Cover and chill for a few hours to allow the flavors to blend.

Sandwich – Start by sauteing the Bacon till desired crispness. Transfer to Kitchen towel to drain excess oil. With the same pan, lightly saute the sliced SPAM.  Glace with touch of Honey (just to balance out the saltines). Set aside.

Assembling the Sandwich – Using a clean non-stick Pan, heat it up on medium/low heat. Place the Bread (buttered side down). Add sliced cheese. Arrange Bacon and SPAM on top. Add graded cheese. Add a leave or two of Parsley (or any leafy Greens). By now, ur Bread should be be nicely grilled on the under-side. Cover with another slice of Bread (this time, buttered side up). Flip over and press/hold the Sandwich a little with a spatula or something, just to help everything bind together. Let it grill for a min or two, or until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden and toasty. Viola, ur gooey “Grilled Bacon Spam And Cheese Sandwich” is done!!! Cut the Sandwich diagonally (or any way U fancy) or serve full.  Plate with a large scoopful of “Potato Salad” and serve immediately!
