Recipe Details

For the Shoestring Potatoes:

2 Russet potatoes, peeled

Granulated garlic, to taste

Black pepper, to taste

Salt, to taste

For the Hot Sauce Aioli:

2 tablespoons Hot sauce

1 cup Mayonnaise

For the Sandwiches:

1-2 tablespoons Butter

4 slices Spam (approximately 1/4 inch slices)

2 large Eggs

4 slices Aged provolone

4 King's Hawaiian Original Sweet Rolls

Shoestring Potatoes

Hot Sauce Aioli

Step 1
For the Shoestring Potatoes:
Step 2
Set a fryer to 350F.
Step 3
Using a spiralizer Mandolin or a regular mandolin fitted with the julienne teeth, mandolin the potato into a bowl of cold water to remove some of the starch.
Step 4
To fry, set up a tray lined with paper towels. Next, set up a seasoning station with separate containers filled with granulated garlic, kosher salt, and a black peppermill. Fry the potato until golden and crispy. As you remove the potato from the fryer, immediately season to taste with the garlic, black pepper, and salt.
Step 5
For the Hot Sauce Aioli:
Step 6
In a mixing bowl, whisk both ingredients until well blended and smooth. Set aside in the refrigerator until needed.
Step 7
For the Sandwiches:
Step 8
In a non-stick pan or griddle set to medium heat, melt 1-2 tablespoons of butter.
Step 9
Place the slices of spam and the dinner rolls cut in half into the pan when the butter starts to bubble. Brown both the spam and rolls on both sides. Remove from the pan.
Step 10
Next, using that same pan, lightly scramble two eggs and season with salt and pepper to taste. Place the provolone on top of the eggs and melt the cheese. Divide the scrambled eggs into four portions.
Step 11
To assemble, place the eggs on the bottom bun. Next, add the spam and shoestring potatoes on top. Finally, smear about a ½ tablespoon of hot sauce aioli on the top bun. Add the top bun and serve.
