Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, it has an incredible balance of sweet and savory flavors.

It takes only one bite to know this is a winner!

4. General Tso’s Spam

Spam is a Chinese takeout favorite, and you can make it yourself with no thanks to low-carb Spam.

This recipe turns Spam into an Asian-inspired dish that’s both healthy and tasty.

It features the classic Spam flavor profile with a sweet, tangy glaze.

Serve it over rice or noodles.



5. Spicy Caramelized Spam

This is a fantastic recipe for those of you who like to try something new and spicy every once in a while.

The sweet caramelization of the spiciness gives this dish an excellent flavor.

It’s also one that takes around 15 minutes to prepare and requires just 3 ingredients (spam, butter, brown sugar).

Top with a sprinkling of cinnamon and serve warm with vanilla ice cream or coffee.

6. Spam Eggs And Rice Recipe

This Spam and Eggs recipe is a fantastic addition to your morning routine!

Spam, eggs, rice – it’s all you need for a comforting meal.

All these simple ingredients make this dish a sure-fire winner.

The savory goodness of Spam paired with the creamy goodness of eggs will surely fill your belly.

7. Spam Tocino Recipe

Tocino is a sweet and savory Mexican dish made with tocino, serrano ham, green onions, and cilantro.

It’s an easy recipe that uses only five ingredients and takes just 15 minutes to prepare.

You’ll love the combination of salty ham with bright cilantro and creamy avocado.

I’m serious!

You’ll get huge amounts of protein and fiber from the ham, noodles, eggs, and veggies.

Plus, it has a wonderful sweet-savory flavor that goes well with all kinds of sauces.

9. Glazed Baked Spam

I love spam, and I’ve found that it’s a good way to get a lot of flavor without having to use too many ingredients.

This recipe is simple, but the glaze adds such a splash of color that makes this dish stand out.

Make enough to serve over toast with your favorite toppings.

10. Hawaiian SPAM Tacos

These Hawaiian SPAM tacos have the same salty, savory flavors as regular tacos, but they’re a lot more fun.

They’re also healthier than regular tacos because you can use no-salt seasoning instead of taco seasoning.

The only change is putting in more hot sauce.

I highly recommend using Frank N Doves brand spicy hot sauce for this recipe as it has less sugar and less salt than most brands.

11. Spam Onigirazu

This unusual dish is similar to the one above, except in this version, Spam is added to the mix.

You’ll need a cast-iron skillet for this one.

(Of course, you could use a regular skillet if you have some on hand.)

For the sauce, cook the Spam until it becomes mushy and then add it with some soy sauce and mirin.

Let that cool before stirring it into your rice.

12. Jean’s Spam Kimchi Fried Rice

This is a seriously fantastic recipe for fried rice.

It’s super easy to make, and it has all the classic flavors of fried rice that you know and love.

You can even add some veggies to make it more filling!

Just be sure to use frozen Spam (or other types of meat) in the skillet instead of bacon or sausage, as they cook faster.


13. Spam Puffs

These Spam puffs are a traditional breakfast treat that is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters.

Spam is already loaded with protein, but it doesn’t have enough flavor.

That’s where the addition of cheese comes in!

The combo of cheese and Spam makes these puffs insanely addictive.

14. Vegan Spam

Vegan Spam might not be your favorite kind of food.

But if you’re craving something salty, thick, and smoky with a touch of sweet, it might just be the one for you.

Flavored with things like sea salt, chili pepper flakes, and ground cumin, this Spam is so good it’ll make you want to lick the bowl clean.

The secret to how incredibly good this dish is?Vegan butter!

Now that’s how to make vegan food taste like real meat!

15. Lazy Spam Donburi

Lazy Spam donburi is the perfect dish for a lazy Sunday.

The combination of tender noodles, succulent spam, and fresh vegetables gives this dish its signature crunch.

It’s also ideal on a cold day because it’s so easy to make!

All you need are some eggs, green onions, bell peppers, and spam to get this delicious bowl ready in no time.

16. Spam Tater Tot Casserole

Spam tater tot casserole is the ultimate comfort food!

This dish combines three types of potato: sweet potatoes, butternut squash, and potatoes.

The mix of these three textures makes this dish so satisfying.

It’s creamy and cheesy with a spicy kick from the hot dogs.

This dish is perfect for getting your tummy full without getting too weighed down.

18. Spam Classic Kimbap

Spam is a salty, fatty snack that’s one of my all-time favorites.

It tastes great on its own and in sandwiches.

But with this recipe, it can be used as part of a full meal!

This kimbap features Spam, carrots, spinach, and other veggies along with a warm egg in the middle.

It’s likely to become your new favorite side or main dish!

19. Grandma McDowells Spam Casserole

Grandma McDowells is a legend in my family.

We didn’t even know she was vegan until she started showing up at our house!

Now, I’ve turned into a vegetarian and can say that this recipe is one of the BEST!

Spam and potatoes make an incredibly hearty dish that will fill you right up.

It’s so easy to make, it’s like cheating.

Just leave out the eggs and cheese, add in some veggies, and throw everything in a casserole dish.

If your family isn’t crazy about Spam or potatoes, try adding some sauteed mushrooms instead.

It won’t be quite as thick but packs just as much flavor.

20. Piggy Spam Musubi Bento

Spam musubi is a fun, tasty lunch box favorite that’s perfect for you if you have a hankering for your favorite Japanese sandwich.

This recipe took me about half an hour to make with only three ingredients.

It features ham and canned Spam in the middle of the sushi rice salad.

It also has a sprinkling of green onions and cucumber slices.

If you want something even more filling, try adding some pickled ginger or green onion rounds to the top.


21. Smoked Spam

If you’re missing the salty, sausagey taste of smoked spam, this recipe is for you!

The best part about this dish is that it doesn’t require a ton of prep work.

It only calls for making your ham, breading mixture (which can be made in advance), and cooking.

Once cooked, it bakes into beautifully crispy-crunchy goodness on the outside and tender on the inside.

You could serve it with nachos or fries too!

22. Spam Ramen Burger

You may not need to make them from scratch, but I’m here to tell you that they’re a lot tastier and easier to achieve.

Once your Spam is well cooked, add it with onions and peppers, then mix in some ketchup, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and brown sugar along with the spices.

I like to use nutmeg because it adds a bit of spice that pairs so well with those savory-sweet flavors.

23. Spam Carbonara

There’s a lot going on in this spaghetti carbonara recipe, but it’s all in the sauce.

The pasta is grated cheese, eggs, and Kraft Spam – so it definitely has an added level of flavor!

This recipe takes an already delicious dish and makes it even better.

It also incorporates smoked salmon for a salty crunch.

24. Spam Sandwich

Spam is the perfect ingredient to have on hand for an easy, low-carb solution to a favorite sandwich.

This recipe is just too good not to share with you!

These sandwiches are filled with golden brown Spam, lettuce, and tomato slices.

A little mustard adds a tangy kick that makes them even better.

They are great as leftovers or packed in lunch boxes for a quick dinner.
