Equipment

  • food processor

Ingredients

  • 12 ounce low sodium Spam chopped
  • 1 small red pepper roasted or 4oz of roasted peppers
  • 15 ounce jar of cheese sauce like cheese whiz
  • 2 tablespoons of sliced salad olives drained
  • 3-4 tablespoons of evaporated milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon of corriander
  • 1/8 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice
  • 3 loaves of bread

Instructions

  • Into a food processor add all of the ingredients, except for bread.
  • Pulse on high until ingredients are creamy.
  • Taste for seasoning, adjust with spices, if desired.
  • Take bread, gently cut off the ends to create squares.
  • Add 1-2 teaspoons of the cheese mixture to a slice of bread and spread to cover.
  • Top with another slice of bread, then cut the bread in half to create two triangles.
  • Repeat until Spam mixture is used.

Notes

The cheese sauce can be stored in an airtight container and can be refrigerated up to one week.
This process can get messy, it is best to have two knives. One to cut the edges, the other to cut it in half. Have a damp towel nearby to wipe the knife between sandwiches.
