Luncheon Meat Omelette


This is something that I enjoy a lot from my childhood days. Whenever I see those cans of luncheon meat at the pork shop, the first thing I think of is luncheon meat omelette.

One of the things that my grandma used to do was fry slices of luncheon meat and then make luncheon meat sandwiches. Is that nice or what?

I remember grandpa having it for breakfast and the weird thing was he dipped the sandwich into his coffee. Come to think of it, he also liked to eat biscuits dipped in coffee.


Back then, my favorite way to eat luncheon meat omelette was with lots and lots of tomato ketchup. I thought it was the best thing in the world. But these days, it's Lingham Chili Sauce for me and nothing else. Tomato ketchup is no longer my favorite.


Besides eating this omelette with plain rice (also nice with rice porridge for those who enjoy porridge), I like to make it into a sandwich filling. It's also nice eaten with cream crackers.

My omelette is always in clumps or pieces even when I use my non-stick pan because I am not good a flipping omelettes. So I tend to turn them over in segments hah..hah...

  6. Many of us love eating luncheon meat omelette growing up. I like the addition of chives in your omelette but each time I buy chives, I end up with so much of it I don't know what to do with the rest when I only need a little. By the way, did you manage to try the YiGe brand yet? ;)

  9. Everybody here loves to eat lunchoen meat and sounds excited on hearing it.
    My wife who is a good sous chef in the kitchen only praises me for cooking the best omelette in this world which she is unable to follow my steps. Let me share my easy peasy way of frying omelette. Just like you, I would fry the chopped luncheon meat with oil in the non stick flat pan. Once it is brown, I would fry some chopped tomatoes inside before pouring the beaten eggs inside the pan. I would shake the pan a bit to distribute the eggs evenly before covering the pan with cover. The fire must be reduced to the super lowest flames. After 1-2 minutes, take a peep and the omelette should be ready to savour. The smell would send you to see your ancestors in heavens with the bottom layer of thinnest crust. You will love it like makan pizza!!! Bingo!

  12. i used to eat a LOT of luncheon meat as a kid. like, five times a week. but i haven't had it in a long time. i wonder if it's changed noticeably since the 80s/90s in terms of flavour etc ;) (i've never had luncheon meat mixed with coffee tho!)

    1. I think as we go along in years, our tastebuds may change and things that used to taste good don't taste the same anymore. But I pretty much still love luncheon meat.

    1. Omelettes are so versatile. One of my favorites is adding just onions and mushrooms.
