Made these on a whim for me and my boyfriend! They didn't last very long!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease 12 muffin cups.

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir luncheon meat until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes.

  • 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.

  • 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(R), I would add a few extra pinches of salt. Bacon, ham, or sausage can also be substituted for the Spam(R).
