  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease 12 muffin cups.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir luncheon meat until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes.
  3. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, garlic powder, pepper, and paprika together in a bowl. Mix luncheon meat, milk, Cheddar cheese, butter, spinach, egg, onion, and basil together in a separate bowl; slowly stir into flour mixture just until batter is mixed. Pour batter into muffin cups until each is 3/4-full.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 33 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Regular all-purpose flour should work fine.
  • I had no problem using a shredded cheese blend. Add more cheese if you want. This is an easy and forgiving recipe.
  • If you opt out of using Spam®, I would add a few extra pinches of salt. Bacon, ham, or sausage can also be substituted for the Spam®.

Taste is wonderful. I added much milk and use ham.

Quite dry. I made them exactly as written. I don't think I'll make them again.

I replaced the onion with green onions and the spam with ham, plus I added a large chopped tomato and some chives. The muffins were delicious! Lots of chunks of tasty stuff relative to the amoun...

Very good!
