I know today’s recipe doesn’t exactly scream Mother’s Day but it’s so darn cute and tasty that I thought I’d share it anyway. Plus it’s so easy to put together and it’s finger food! That being said, this is a scrumptious starter for any brunch, even a Mother’s Day’s brunch.
The spicy garlic aioli was inspired by the lovely Nami over at Just One Cookbook. She has a recipe on Spicy Mayo and I thought this would be a tasty condiment for this slider. Leftover aioli would be an AWESOME dipper for fries!!! Happy Mother’s Day to all you Moms out there!
- 6 dinner rolls (I used Hawaiian sweet rolls)
- 3 slices of Spam, cut about 1″ thick then halved
- olive oil for cooking
- 6 quail eggs
Spicy Garlic Aioli:
- 1 cup of mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon of Sriracha
- 1 clove of garlic, grated
- juice from 1/2 a lime
Split the dinner rolls in half horizontally and set them aside.
In medium skillet over medium high heat, drizzle a little olive oil and add Spam. Brown both sides, about 2-3 minutes each side. Remove from heat and place each Spam slices on the bottom half of each roll. In the same skillet over medium low heat, gently crack the quail egg into the pan (you might want to crack it into a small bowl first in case any shells fall in the egg). Cook until the egg whites are set and brown around the edges, about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and place each egg on top of the each Spam slices.
For the aioli: Combine mayonnaise, Sriracha, garlic and lime juice. Stir to combine.
Slather the aioli on the top half of the bun and place it on top of the egg and serve.

Great as brunch…for lovely mother day,good thoughts Anne!!:)
what a lovely and delicious slider, I’d love to have these gorgeous babies for brunch 😉 you seem to love quail eggs !!
What a great combo! How cute 🙂
That looks dreamy 🙂
i guess this ia agreat option for little appetizer….
simple but had a fascinating presentation!
My entire family loves spam and this would have been a great appetizer to have included in my Mother’s Day bbq had I seen it earlier. Ver nice!!
Thanks Daisy! 🙂 Hope you had a lovely Mother’s Day.
Hah, haven’t had Spam in the longest time! Although, there used to be a bacon type spam here that I used to buy occasionally. Pan-fried it was so tasty sometimes.
There’s something about pan-fried spam that makes it so tasty. Crispy exterior, soft interior. I know it’s probably horrible for you but isn’t most great tasting foods? 🙂
Oh, Spam was never horrible! I just preferred the bacon version of it. Which was probably the unhealthy version but flavour wise it was so good.
Bacon type Spam? Damn, we don’t have that here in the U.S., I don’t think. But sounds fabulous!
It is, in small amounts. Will try and find out the name of the brand for you when I’m out food shopping later 🙂
Yay, thank you! 🙂
I’m just hoping it’s still available! As now I’m really hankering after it sliced and pan-fried with salad later on 🙂
It’s not available in either of my local stores 😦 Will keep checking for it in other shops. It’s so long ago that I bought it chances are it’s no longer available. Ouch!
Adorable and thoroughly unpretentious eating; love it, Anne! Thanks so much for sharing, and happy mother’s day to you =) Hope all is well with you … big hugs, Christina xo!
Wow, these sliders look amazing Anne! Would’ve loved these for brunch today since my hubby loves spam too. What a great combo with a punch of spicy mayo – love it! Happy Mother’s Day!
I love quails egg. The shells are a bit annoying to peel but you can make some delicate dishes with that. Yet, I’ve never made a fried egg with it (I always boiled it and simmer it with soy sauce or something). Anyway how cute!
I think Mother’s Day or not, this is an excellent brunch. I made something almost exactly like this with turkey ham, egg and paprika Greek yogurt. More sliders!
Aww thank you so much for the kind mentions! This sliders look so good. I LOVE quail eggs! It’s a perfect size for the sliders. 🙂
I’ve never had quail before. This might be the perfect recipe to give it a shot. And that spicy garlic aioli sounds perfect!
It is cute and I would have been delighted had I been presented with this for breakfast on Mother’s Day! Hope you had a great one!
Really cute and easy for brunch! I came across a package of single serving Spam recently and sent one to one of my boys in a care package. Your recipe would be perfect!
Very clever idea.
I think these would have been perfect for a Mothers Day brunch. So very unexpected and a real treat for the eyes. And I’m going to “borrow” that aioli recipe. Thanks, Anne.
OMG. How did you get Spam to look that good? 🙂
Such adorable finger food idea!!
Anne, this recipe is very divine! Pinning…but can’t quite decide which board to pin this on…because I’d have this for about any meal…holiday or not. You always do such an amazing job on your posts! I love coming over to “scroll” around!
Spam and I go way back : ) I love how you featured it here…it is perfect with eggs in a sandwich. I’ve never cooked quail eggs – I need to find some! I’m sure this was so delicious!
I WANT this for the breakfast! It looks divine!
Anne, these sliders look great…such a great idea pairing spam with the quail eggs and garlic aioli…delicious!
Thanks for the recipe and have a lovely week 🙂
Those quail eggs are so cute atop the sliders!
The spicy aioli really gave this dish some character. Otherwise, spam and eggs is good eats, but rather ordinary. Anne even spread some of the aioli on a turkey and cheese sandwich for my lunch. I didn’t realize it was there until I started eating. Wow! It was so flavorful…
I love this recipe Anne! My family is very much obsessed with spam – we put it in fried rice and absolutely love spam musubi. This looks delicious! xo
This recipe is so unusual – and looks delish! I love SPAM, and we used to raise quail when we had our farm in Quebec, Canada. I wish I was still raising them now so I could just go out to the barn, gather some eggs and make this dish !
