During the Second World War, Spam was often the only meat available in Hawaii. The people there made the best of of what they could get and they developed numerous recipes that utilized Spam as the featured ingredient. Even today Spam is an important item in the diet of the Hawaiian people. More Spam is eaten per person there than anywhere else in the United States.
How to Make Spamburger
- Slice the spam into 3x1/4" slices, one slice for each spamburger.
- For added taste, toast the bun with butter or olive oil.
- Brown the spam in a skillet. When you turn the slice of spam over add the cheese so it will melt a bit.
- Spread mayonnaise on each side of the bun.
- Put together each spamburger with layers of lettuce, tomato, spam, cheese, and pickles.
- Enjoy your spamburger.
