SPAM French Fries

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


Recipe:

Ingredients:
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)

Directions:
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!


Also slices eggs perfectly.


Egg sliced.

    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.

    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. :-)

    2. Hi Leigh, since you mentioned slicing eggs I tried it and it works great. I added a couple pictures of it for you at the end of this post.

  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.
