Philly-Dilly SPAM® Sandwich

Philly-Dilly SPAM® Sandwich

Sure, the name Philly-Dilly sounds silly, but one bite and you’ll realize this sandwich makes the Philly cheesesteak look silly. It’ll also prove to you that this Philly-Dilly was definitely not put together in a willy-nilly fashion.

20 min 11 ingredients


  • 1 12-ounce can SPAM® Less Sodium
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2–1 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 2 slim French bread loaves
  • 4 slices white American cheese
  • 3 slices smoked provolone cheese
  • 2 tablespoons prepared dill veggie dip


  • 1.Cut bell peppers and onions into thin slices. Sauté in a large, non-stick skillet with 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat, until peppers and onions are tender, about 10 minutes.
  • 2.While peppers and onions cook, shave off very thin, non-uniform slices of SPAM® Less Sodium with a sharp knife. Remove pepper and onion mixture from skillet. Set aside and cover.
  • 3.Return same skillet to medium-high heat and add SPAM® slices in an even layer. Add Worcestershire directly on top of the SPAM®, covering each piece. Cover generously with black pepper. Let cook 4 minutes, then stir and flip the SPAM® and allow to cook for about 5 more minutes, until SPAM® is heated through and slightly crisp.
  • 4.Slice bread loaves most of the way through and toast in separate skillet with remaining butter. While bread is toasting, return pepper and onion mixture to skillet with the SPAM®. Mix together well, and then spread into an even layer. Place cheese slices evenly on top of the SPAM® mixture and reduce to medium heat. Once the cheese is melted, remove pan from heat and stir the mixture with a spatula to incorporate the cheese into the entire mixture.
  • 5.Place toasted bread loaves onto serving dish. Spread a very thin layer of the dill dip onto the top halves. Scoop sandwich filling onto bottom halves of bread and close. Slice into desired serving sizes and serve immediately.
