This Spam Fried Rice is almost a replica of my usual Luncheon Meat Fried Rice. Only difference is that, I’ve used a mix of brown and red rice and of course, Spam, which is just a brand of canned luncheon meat that you can easily find at supermarkets here in Singapore.
This is a simple, straightforward fried rice that you can easily whip up for a quick lunch. And like any other fried rice, it’s one of the most ideal rice dishes to make especially when you have overnight rice waiting to be used up.
I like using brown and red rice for this Spam Fried Rice because they add this extra nutty flavour and lend a slightly chewy bite to the dish. And in terms of health benefits, both types of rice are higher in fibre and are lower in GI (compared to regular white rice). Give this recipe a try and see if the little ones like it. ?
Just trying to be a bit more fancy with the presentation, lol, and so I dressed up the fried rice for the husband. Fried rice may be the simplest thing to make but it doesn’t have to look boring! ?
