Greek SPAMlette Casserole.
Who here loves SPAM and has a super-duper recipe that uses it? I certainly do! I just made my family a SPAMTASTIC Brunch Dish. (Take that, you stinky old boyfriend from posh Westchester NY suburb who used to make fun of me for liking SPAM.) I'd like to share my awesome breakfast idea with you. My family thought it was great! And, I'm kinda proud of myself for actually writing a recipe. It doesn't come naturally to me, you know, to write recipes. I'm an eater. Not a cooker.
This recipe was submitted to the SPAM.com Recipe Exchange here. I've already got one recipe in there.
Greek SPAMlette Casserole
This is a special brunch egg casserole, that takes a bit of time to prepare (unless you can do some of the parts ahead of time and save them in the fridge.) Altogther I was at it for about 2 hours. This should serve 4-6.
10 golf-ball sized Red Potatoes
2 Tablespoons Butter
1 can of SPAM with Bacon
A Sprinkle of Sugar
A Sprinkle of Pepper
A Sprinkle of Thyme
1/4 cup Milk
2 Tablespoons Sour Cream
1/3 cup Crumbled Feta Cheese
10-15 Fresh Spinach Leaves
1 Medium Sliced Tomato (optional)
1. Run potatoes thru Food Processor until they are bits. Fry them in skillet for 30 minutes in the 2 Tablespoons of Butter until you have browned, crispy hashbrowns. Set aside.
2. Chop up SPAM with Bacon into little bits and fry it in the skillet for about 20 minutes, add sprinkles of sugar, pepper, and thyme. Cook until it starts browning and crisping. Set aside on a plate with papertowels.
3. Put 10 eggs, 1/4 cup Milk, 2 Tablespoons Sour Cream in big measuring cup or bowl and whip until blended. Set aside.
4. Spray 8 x 8 glass casserole dish with Cooking Spray.
5. Pour hashbrowns into casserole dish and spread out to make crust for casserole.
6. Sprinkle in about half of the cooked SPAM. Spread around.
7. Make a single layer of Spinach leaves on top of SPAM.
8. Sprinkle on about half of the Feta Cheese all over the dish.
9. Pour in about half of the egg mixture.10. Sprinkle in rest of SPAM. Sprinkle on rest of Feta on top of that. Then pour the rest of the egg mixture into the dish. (You are laying this like a lasagna)
11. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes, until center is no longer liquid-y.
(*Optional Tomato: You can also thin-slice fresh tomato and place it on top of the casserole after baking about 20 minutes, then return to oven for 20 more minutes.)
