SPAM French Fries

Another perfect use for my new SPAM Slicer, SPAM Fries! Oh are they ever good!


1 can of your favorite SPAM

Flour Dredge:
¾ cup flour
1 tsp paprika
¼ tsp garlic
½ tsp black pepper

1 egg +2 tbs water for wash (enough for ½ can of spam, 2 eggs for 1 can)
1 cup bread crumbs (regular or Panko, I used panko)

Cut Spam into French fry size/shapes
Dredge in flour
Dredge in egg wash
Dredge in bread crumbs

Deep fry 3-4 minutes

Dipping Sauce:
4 tbs mayo
2 tsp Dijon
2 cloves garlic
½ tsp lemon juice

Using the Spam Slicer I sliced the entire can into 9 slices (normal amount).
I then removed 4 slices and place them aside.
The remaining stack of 5 slices I rotated 90 degrees, placed in the slicer and then sliced them into French Fry shapes/sticks. Really simple to do.

All the ingredients for a typical dredge and fry.

The Fry Daddy doing its thing. Frying 5-6 at a time.

The finished fries, yummy!

    1. They were very good, next time I'l try the Bacon Spam!:-)

  2. bahahahahahah! only YOU MIKE could find a recipe for spam fries! yer killing me! and you MUST send an email to Harry Flashman. what the heck - i will send him an email. he will LOOOOOVE this!

    sending much love your way! your friend,

    1. It's Survival comfort food, what else can I say. Although I'm willing to bet Jam will never see Spam Fries on your table.

  3. Looks good. it would be great for any picky eater (kids)that didn't like plain fried spam.

    1. Gary good to see you posting again.
      Spam fries may be a side dish you can sell at your BBQ biz?

  4. That looks savory. I have been using my new spam slicer to cut the spam up into little cubes and adding it to rice , or potatoes, or beans. Nice piece of gear. Now I need something that will grind up onions into little squares so I can quite slicing and dicing with a butcher knife.

    1. That's the next thing I'm going to try, cutting into small cubes for use in scrambled eggs, pizza topping, salads etc. Glad it's working out for you.

  5. Howdy! I realize this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog such as yours require a large
    amount of work? I am completely new to running a blog but I do
    write in my diary everyday. I'd like to start a blog so I can share
    my personal experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips
    for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

    1. Anon, nothing here is ever off topic. 
      As for the amount of time? Yes, it takes a ‘lot’ of time, it will consume most of your free time.
      If you are going to blog about current events and personal life I’d suggest you review “Six Bears in the Woods” (in my side bar) He is one of the many good writers I follow, a gifted writer, quickly to the point with the least amount of words. He lives the life style he blogs about.
      If you blog about preparedness items and methods you need to actually own the items and test the items to be sure they actually work and will save your life and not take it. There are too many overzealous people out there posting inaccurate information as fact because “they read it some where”.
      Also descriptive photo’s are always appreciated by the readers.

      Hope this helps! When you start e-mail me so I can follow and any of your questions are always welcome.

    1. Just a little :-) But they are good!

  7. Mike,

    I'm not a spam lover. I will however, keep this recipe for the guys they love spam.
    Thanks Mike :-)

    1. You should surprise them with the fires one night. Tank and Bull Dog will be amazed and probably fight over the last ones!

  8. I never liked spam until I tried this! Frying, albeit unhealthy, makes anything good haha. Yummy, thank you!

    1. Your welcome Lola.
      I found that frying Spam until the edges turn crispy makes the Span taste like bacon (it is a pork product). Great for a bacon and eggs camping breakfast. Same thing happens when we deep fry it.

  9. Well, they do look pretty good! I probably won't run out and buy some spam just to try them, but you've reminded me that I need to get one of those spam cutters for hardboiled eggs, LOL

    1. Leigh the slicer does slice hard boiled eggs perfectly. As for spam. We city folks stock Spam because it needs no refrigeration and is good for several years. It cooks up easily over a campfire so in a grid down situation it is a good option. Eating Spam will also make Dan an official mountainman. :-)

  10. I LOVE Spam. These look wonderful. 2nd Man might take some convincing but I'll work on it, ha. Spam slicer? I must have missed a post. I'll have to look for it.

    And yes, Spam is a great product to keep in supply "just in case". Not sure what the normal shelf life is but I'm sure it's a couple years at least.

    1. Poor 2nd Man, he needs to expand his culinary expertise and try living like a hungry homesteader! These are surprisingly good! :-)

  11. When some one searches for his vital thing, so he/she wants to be
    available that in detail, so that thing is maintained over here.


Your thoughts are welcome!
