Spam Pineapple Sandwich

Recently I have been introducing the teenagers to the wonders of Spam. All the amazing dishes you can make with just a can of Spam. There’s spam and eggs, spam fried rice, spam hash… ok I need to stop because I’m sounding a little like Bubba from Forrest Gump.

One of my favorite Spam combos is a spam and pineapple sandwich. The teens and myself cannot get enough of the sweet pineapple along with the crispy salty spam on a bed of cabbage topped with Ono sauce. This is the perfect recipe for a busy weeknight. You know what I’m talking about. One of those nights were one kid is at band practice, the other is at basketball practice and the other you left at the store and now have to rush back to pick him or her up.
