Spam Burger with Sweet & Sour Slaw
1 can Spam (Cut into 6 slices lengthwise)
8 ounces bacon, cooked crisp
1 cup diced sweet yellow onion
1 cup all-purpose flour, divided
2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 cups green cabbage, sliced thin
2 cups red cabbage, sliced thin
3 large eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Sweet and spicy mustard
6 hamburger buns, brioche or pretzel bread
2-3 tablespoons of butter
Cook bacon until crisp, rough chop and set aside. Sauté onion in skillet with 2 tablespoons of bacon grease. Cook over medium-low heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle onion with 1 tablespoon of flour. Cook and stir 2 minutes to thicken. Add vinegar and sugar, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add cabbages and stir until slightly wilted, about 2 minutes. Add chopped bacon and stir to combine. Remove from heat and set aside.
Slice Spam into 6 lengthwise pieces. Place flour, eggs and panko crumbs into three separate bowls. Dip each Spam slice into flour, then egg and then roll in panko crumbs to coat completely. Over medium high heat, sauté the Spam slices in 1/4 cup of vegetable oil until golden brown on both sides. Remove spam, slice bread in half and toast the bread in the hot skillet with a little butter. Spread mustard on both pieces of bread.
Add lettuce leaf, spam slice and spoon warm cabbage slaw over top. Cover with second piece of bread. Serve immediately.
