Spam ‘n Egg Baowich
This Spam-n-Egg Baowich created by Don Chow came in second place in the Meals for Mars contest "breakfast" category. This variation on the classic breakfast sandwich involves making the biscuit from scratch and filling it with Spam, reconstituted eggs, and dehydrated Colby cheese that has been brought back to life with the addition of water. It's about as close as a Mars astronaut could get to having an Egg McMuffin in space.
Crew members prepared and tested recipes during a four-month study in a lava field on the slope of the Mauna Loa volcano in Hawaii. That location might explain the prevalence of Spam as an ingredient in many of the recipes.
