Spam Hash


When I opened a can of spam a couple of weeks ago I managed to make it stretch for 5 meals  (2 main and 3 lunches)..

Here was a simple one using a small amount of spam but it nevertheless gave a nice flavour (spam is very salty)

Spam Hash Ingredients (for 1 person)

  • 2 largish potatoes
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/4 can of spam
  • blob butter/margarine


Wash potatoes

Cut into quarters and boil until firmly cooked, remove from water and cool

Chop onion

Chop up 1/4 can spam into chunks

Take large fying pan add in large blob of butter and heat

Add in onions and cook gently until nice and translucent

Take potatoes and chop them into smaller chunks

Add these and the spam chunks into the pan with the onions and continue to fry and stir

Turn down frying pan and cover if possible and continue to cook for another 5-10 minutes. At this stage you can add in some chopped tomato if you like. If the mixture is sticking too much add in a little bit of water and stir

Once cooked served with your favourite veggies!
