  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 3 cups Belgian waffle mix (just add egg and oil variety)

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¼ cup maple syrup


  1. Preheat a broiler for high heat. Line a baking sheet with parchment.

  2. Heat a saucepan over medium heat; add diced SPAM® Less Sodium and brown sugar, stirring to coat; cook until brown sugar is melted, about 2 minutes. Turn brown sugar-coated SPAM® Less Sodium onto prepared baking sheet.

  3. Broil under the preheated broiler until deep golden brown, about 15 minutes, stirring often to avoid scorching.

  4. Let candied SPAM® Less Sodium cool.
