SPAM Appreciation Week : Recipe & Giveaway

Whether you love it or hate it, everyone has heard of SPAM. What you may not know is that SPAM Chopped Pork & Ham is primarily high quality pork shoulder meat and ham (hand cut off the bone). These are then ground together with water, sugar and spices before cooking in the can (which gives it the long shelf life), and contain a whopping minimum 90% meat, which is a higher content than many supermarket sausages.

SPAM is a handy little can to keep in the pantry, for those days when the cupboards are almost bare, to make a meal in minutes. I've previously shared recipes for BBQ Bean & SPAM Pie and SPAM Paella, both of which went down extremely well with the rest of the family.

The SPAM website is full of many more recipes, including this SPAM Tear n Share, which would be great at a bbq or Friday night feast in front of the TV.

SPAM Tear n Share

340g can of SPAM , cut into cubes
Large unsliced loaf of bread - a bloomer would be ideal
200g Cheddar cheese, grated
75g garlic butter
1 tsp dried parsley
Ranch sauce for dipping
  • Add the cubed SPAM to a frying pan and cook until lightly golden
  • Live a baking sheet with foil and place the bread on top
  • Slice the bread lattice style, one inch apart (making sure not to cut all the way through)
  • Stuff the grated cheese between each of the cuts in the bread
  • Place the SPAM cubes over the top of the bread, stuffing some into the gaps
  • Spread the garlic butter over the top and sprinkle over the parsley
  • Cover the bread with foil and bake in a preheated 180℃ oven for approx 15 minutes
  • Remove the foil and bake for a further 5-10 minutes, until golden and crispy on the top
  • Serve with the Ranch sauce
