Spam fried rice is a simple and delicious recipe. Made with a combination of spam, garlic, mixed veggies, basmati rice, soy sauce, and scrambled eggs, it is a delightful side dish or whole meal. The great thing is, it can be made in under half and hour and served for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Although the dish can be a side dish or whole meal. I oven have it as a whole meal. Believe me, like many of our recipes, your family and friends will love it.
There are a few tips to making the dish. To begin with, I use basmati rice as I like the texture and taste, but any type of rice can be used. The recipe calls for spam light, but you can use the regular spam if so desired. If you are a garlic lover, add more. If you are a pepper lover, go ahead and add it. I use frozen veggies with a mixture of corn, etc. but any type of veggie can be used.
It is interesting to note that spam was an old world war 2 staple and is still considered a meal for the wealthy in many Asian countries due to the influence of the war. Its nutritional value has been disputed in other parts of the globe, however.
