MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A recipe that was featured on Alabama Live Monday, won a local competition. Sandy's SPAMMIN' Onion Jammin' sandwiches were a hit at the Alabama National Fair and claimed one of the top recipes in the Great American Spam Championship.

To make her award winning creation: Sandy caramelizes onions with Hickory SPAM, brewed coffee and extra flavorings for her "jam" which is like a chutney. She marinates a second can of Hickory SPAM with similar ingredients and fries the slices with coffee granules for texture. She then assembles the sandwiches with Hawaiian rolls and a herb butter/cream cheese spread. The judges were wowed. Here's her recipe for those who want to try it out:
