This extra-hearty egg sandwich is one delicious brunch bomb.

Award-winning blogger Joy Wilson, better known as Joy the Baker, has a new collection of recipes out just itching to hit your brunch table. Liven up the best meal of the week with her innovative and classic approaches to hearty morning fare, like a fried SPAM and egg banh mi sandwich that pays homage to New Orleans’ diverse culinary scene. 

Sure, New Orleans is famous for its beignets and Sazeracs; less well known is that it has some of the very best (and cheapest) báhn mì sandwiches, thanks to its booming Vietnamese population. I use SPAM in this sandwich, which isn’t typical of my kitchen, but totally appropriate and delicious in this sandwich, and especially fantastic when paired with a fried egg. Piles of pickled vegetables, spicy jalapeño, and cilantro work to make this sandwich super fresh and incredibly delicious.
