Growing up, we have been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and do you know what actually is our go-to breakfast meal? It is none other than the drool-worthy SPAM! We just could not deny how every time we go out for grocery shopping, part of our to-buy list are cans of our ultimate comfy food, SPAM. This delectable luncheon meat that cannot be compared to any other has had our hearts way back we were kids, so you really could say that SPAM and us are inseparable.
Anyway, as we grow, we don’t get to always eat breakfast; let’s just get this out there, especially if we are on a rush. Don’t fret, though, because we promise you, we are not neglecting our health, ourselves, for that matter. It’s just that we definitely do not like missing out on eating our favorite – SPAM. However, who said we could only enjoy SPAM as our first meal for the day, right? It’s a total bummer aligning SPAM as a dish to be eaten during breakfast alone, when in fact it is a dish absolutely perfect for the whole day!
That being said, as much as we, together with most Pinoys out there, confess our love for SPAM as our go-to meal for breakfast, we just know that SPAM is more than that! Many even just go for the classic way of cooking it – slicing it real nice and frying it up until the outside is crispy and caramelized and the inside is juicy and tender.
However, as self-proclaimed lovers of food, in general, we are open in trying out new things and rediscovering classic yummies – food innovation, so to say. And so, we’d like you to say hello to something we did out of our love of SPAM – SPAM Mac n Cheese!
Regardless if it’s breakfast, lunch, or whenever, our SPAM Mac n Cheese will certainly make you crave! And you know what? It’s even perfect for this coming Valentine’s Day as you sure could easily make this, too, and impress your special someone. Don’t think twice in making it extra cheesy to make your special someone feel all mushy, got it? Just follow our step-by-step process below and we promise, you will be having a fantastic date with your loved one!
