"My aunt remembers my grandmother making these for the family during World War II when many food items were rationed. Good at any time of day--breakfast, lunch, dinner, or midnight snack!" — Jennifer

finely chopped onion
fully cooked luncheon meat (e.g. Spam)
I actually grew up with my Mom making this on a regular basis because she grew up with HER Mom making it on a regular basis. The only change Mom made was using gov'ment cheese, she spread mayonnaise on the bread before making the sandwich, and sometimes, she would add lettuce. It was ALWAYS specifically on cheap white bread. I can't think of anything more comforting than this sandwich.
My mother also used this recipe when we wanted a quick breakfast. It was good.
Ok, so I received a can of Spam for Christmas - a relative back home didn't know you can get it in the US, and included it in a 'grocery care package' - and I didn't really know what to do with it. I thought I'd give this recipe a go, but was pretty certain I wouldn't like it. Well, I was wrong! I toasted the bread as suggested, and it was actually a very tasty sandwich. Blimey!
If you like spam you'll like it. One of the best spam and egg sandwich's I've had in a while.
It tastes like beefs
Sooo bad for you, yet sooo good!
Great sandwich, quick to fix on a night when you get home and think oh no what's for dinner?!!!
Followed the recipe as written, toasted the bread (we used Arnold's Sandwich Thins). It was tasty, but I guess I'm not a huge Spam fan because I didn't love the flavor. I liked the tomato in it to help balance the saltiness in the meat. It was something different, and if you've got spam to use a good way to use it. :)
