I got this recipe from my boyfriend (being a guy, he eats anything fried). This is a good snack to make when you get the munchies. It can be made in any quantity you need.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Gently press the luncheon meat slices into the flour to coat and shake off the excess flour. Dip into the beaten egg, then press into bread crumbs. Gently toss between your hands so any bread crumbs that haven't stuck can fall away. Place the breaded luncheon meat slices onto a plate while breading the rest; do not stack.

  • Deep fry the luncheon meat a few slices at a time until hot and golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain on a paper towel lined plate before serving.

I have to admit defeat. I guess it's true sometimes you just can't go back home. I've been searching to relive my childhood dinners when my mom would fried spam. This is the second recipe I've tried as well as just frying it Read More

This is almost exactly the recipe I've used for years. The only difference is I substitute 1 cup of the bread crumbs with 1 cup of grated parmesan cheese in the breading. You can also add 1-2 tablespoons of parsley to the mix if you want to give it an extra nudge. Read More

This is a decent recipe. I don't love spam but I had nothing else to make for lunch so I made this. If cut pretty thin this actually does taste quite good. I didn't do the flour first just dipped in a milk/egg mix and then italian bread crumbs. Fried in a pan until brown. Thanks for a quick simple lunch idea! Read More

This is so good! We are trying to save money so I am buying in bulk and going to the store a lot less. I didn't know what to do with Spam. I didn't have seasoned bread crumbs. I had cornflake crumbs and added some italian seasoning. That's the only thing I did different. We really liked it! Read More

My picky 3yo loves these! They were very easy to do..My hubby loves spam so we always have a cabinet full..this was a great last minute "what am I going to make for dinner?" recipe. Took no time at all. I used Italian Seasoned breadcrumbs so no need to season anything. Read More
