Hong Kong Style Spam & Egg Macaroni Soup for #SoupSwap
Happy National Soup Swap Day! Today, I'm linking up with other bloggers for a virtual soup swap hosted by Kate's Recipe Box - and we're all sharing some tasty soup recipes to warm you up!
This was a very fun soup to try out - my brain was very confused while I was eating it. I felt that the ratio of pasta to other ingredients was off in the version I made, so I listed half of the amount of pasta below in the recipe so that there is more broth to filling ingredients.
Flavor wise this was really tasty, and just wonderfully strange (to my taste buds)! The fried egg pieces and creamy yolk mixed with bites of spam, and then noodles, broth, and veggies somehow works together! It was a delicious and filling lunch.
This is the perfect time of year to try out a few new soup recipes. I know I lean much more heavily on soups, stews, and chilis this time of year when the weather is so chilly outside - and we've got you covered with tons of fantastic new ideas to try out.
