Gemütlichkeit Sandwich

“Gee! Mmmm! You like it!” Or at least it’s pretty close to being pronounced that way. And we know you’ll like it because it has BLACK LABEL® Bacon, SPAM® With Real HORMEL® Bacon, panko bread crumbs and of course, a German pretzel bun!

  • 2 (12-ounce) cans SPAM® with Real HORMEL® Bacon
  • 8 ounces HORMEL® BLACK LABEL® Bacon
  • 1 cup yellow onion, diced
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, divided
  • 2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 4 cups thinly sliced green and red cabbage
  • 12 hamburger sized pretzel rolls
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sweet spicy mustard
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Dice the bacon into 1/2-inch pieces.
  2. Cook the bacon over low heat until crispy, then place on paper towels and set aside.
  3. In a different skillet, add 2-3 tablespoons of the bacon drippings and sauté the onion over medium low heat until softened, or about 5 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle the onion with 1 tablespoon of the flour. Cook and stir for 2 minutes.
  5. Add the vinegar and sugar, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
  6. Season as desired with salt and pepper.
  7. Add cabbage and stir until it slightly wilts, about 1 minute, then add the cooked bacon. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside.
  8. Preheat the oven to 300°F.
  9. Cut the pretzel rolls in half and lightly brush them with a small amount of oil, then place face-side down on a baking sheet.
  10. Lightly toast the rolls in the oven for about 5-10 minutes, then set aside.
  11. Add the remaining oil in a large nonstick skillet (enough to cover the bottom of the pan), and heat over medium heat.
  12. Slice each can of SPAM® with Real HORMEL® Bacon into 6 lengthwise slices (for a total of 12 slices).
  13. Place flour, eggs, and panko crumbs into three separate pans.
  14. Dip each slice of SPAM® with Real HORMEL® Bacon into flour, following by egg and then into the panko crumbs.
  15. Sauté the SPAM® with Real HORMEL® Bacon slices until golden brown on both sides.
  16. Place the SPAM® with Real HORMEL® Bacon in warm oven and keep them there until all slices have been browned.
  17. To assemble, spread the bottom half of each toasted pretzel bun with mustard.
  18. Top with SPAM® with Real HORMEL® Bacon and the cabbage slaw, then the roll tops. Serve immediately. Makes 12 sandwiches.
