In a chat with a friend on Facebook earlier this morning there was mention of Spam and different varieties of Spam. I mentioned that I’d like to see Vegemite Spam.

I cut a slice of Spam and gently and with great love fried it in a frypan until the outside surface had changed colour a little. I set it aside to cool and rest. When the surface of the Spam was cool, I smeared on a little Vegemite. I put some spinach leaves and halved cherry tomatoes into the frypan plus a small handful of grated cheddar cheese. Atop the cheese I added the slice of fried Vegemite smeared Spam. I cooked this for three minutes with a lid on the frypan. The spinach leaves wilted, the cherry tomatoes softened, and the cheese melted.

I’m sure people in England could do this with marmite or promite. I wonder if people in Hawaii, the Republic of Korea, and Japan (big Spam lovers) would like this dish.
