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...
