The Absolute Best Ways To Use Leftover Spam
By CATIE DUCKWORTH
Fried Rice
Fried rice is perfect for using leftover Spam, but also any leftover rice and vegetables you have in your fridge. To make this simple meal, cook some beaten eggs, then fry your diced Spam, next your chopped veggies and chilled rice, followed by soy sauce, fish sauce, and sesame oil, and finally top with sriracha and scallions or a fried egg.
Mac & Cheese
Spam mac and cheese makes for a delicious, easy, and inexpensive weeknight meal. If you're making boxed mac and cheese, simply add cubes of the meat to the prepared dish; if you're making homemade mac and cheese, add shredded cheese and cubed Spam to the finished roux to make a gooey sauce before adding your pasta.
Hash
In place of corned beef, use leftover Spam in a traditional breakfast hash recipe by adding some cubed Spam to your potatoes and diced bell peppers mix and cook until the meat is browned and crispy. Take things up a notch by using the Spam with bacon variety, and topping your hash with avocado and an over-easy fried egg.
Tacos
Tacos are a versatile food that can be made with any filling, including leftover Spam. Make Hawaiian tacos with fried Spam strips, bell pepper, and pineapple chunks, or transform the classic al pastor taco by cooking Spam cubes marinated in crushed pineapple, lemon juice, Mexican seasoning blend, and sugar.
Biscuits
Adding Spam, particularly the bacon variety, to Southern-style biscuits will give an extra savory element to this breakfast-time favorite. For a spin on jalapeño cheddar biscuits, add diced Spam to your biscuit mix, or you could make a breakfast sandwich with some fried slices of spam and eggs layered on a warm biscuit.
