*Spam with Mustard Mayo Sandwich*
1 (200g) tub or can of SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham, chopped into smallcubes
4 large hard boiled eggs, finely chopped
1 heaped TBS of mayonnaise
1 tsp wholegrain mustard (optional)
1 TBS chopped chives
1 pack of mustard cress or fresh salad leaves
8 slices of bread from a large loaf (white, 50/50 or wholegrain)
Put the chopped SPAM® and hard boiled eggs into a mixing bowl. Add the mayonnaise, wholegrain mustard and chopped chives. Stir well until everything is well coated with the mayonnaise. Spread the mixture onto 4 slices of bread. Put a layer of cress or salad leaves on top of the SPAM® mixture and then place the other slice on top of the salad. Cut into diagonals and serve.
Note - I would butter the slices of bread first with softened butter to help to keep the bread from going soggy.
The 200g tub is currently available in the UK from Tesco and Asda. 200g and 340g cans are also available from all major UK supermarkets.
