For some reason, Spam has made its way back onto my menu. I used to think: "Mystery meat in a can? Gross." I guess I still think that, but for some reason, I'm definitely OK with eating it now—not on the regular, mind you, just every now and again, when I'm feeling right. I guess I was feeling right a couple of Saturdays ago, sitting out on the garden patio at The Southern Station in Santa Margarita, cup of coffee in front of me, the sun on my face. Perusing the list of eggs benny options, the Green Eggs and Spam just sounded so good. Poached eggs, fried green tomatoes, and smoked Cajun Spam smothered in hollandaise sauce and perfectly perched on a soft English muffin. I did it. I took the risk, and I was not disappointed. Runny and delicious with sweet, salty meat, and the crunch of fried bread crumbs kept me feeling right until the last bite. You can get yourself a spamalicious benny for $12.75 every morning, starting at 7 a.m.
The Southern Station Grill in Santa Margarita is located at 22412 El Camino Real. Δ
