Watch How To Make It:
Tons of SPAM recipes have been popping up, and they're typically the same recipes over again.
That's why One Down Team and I collaborate to bring you THREE NEW WAYS to make SPAM at home!
BONUS: we also share the history of SPAM for you to enjoy while you learn how to make these three delicious dishes.
In this video, we create Spam Ube Donut, Coconut-Crusted SPAM Fries, and Spam Dog.
Spam Ube Donut is PERFECT for those who love sweet and salty combinations.
Coconut-Crusted SPAM Fries are GREAT finger foods to serve at parties, and even tastier when dipped in banana ketchup!
And Spam Dog is a nod to the Korean Street Cheese Dogs, perfect for that irresistible gooey cheese pull!

SPAM UBE DONUT
1 can SPAM
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp sugar (see special notes below for an easy hack)
1/2 cup ube glaze (click for directions on how to make ube glaze)
1. Chop up your spam into small chunks. Heat up a little bit of oil in a frying pan and toast the spam until it’s nice and crunchy.
2. Remove the spam from the heat, and pat the pan dry with a paper towel.
3. Then add sugar to the pan, and cook it over low heat until it caramelizes. Add spam back into the pan and coat the spam in caramel.
4. Remove from the heat and allow it to cool.
5. Dip your donut upside down into the ube glaze.
6. Take the SPAM bits and sprinkle on top of your glaze. Enjoy!
Special Notes: QUICK HACK: Doing the caramel glaze may get tricky. Use maple syrup to quickly glaze the spam!
COCONUT-CRUSTED SPAM FRIES
1 can SPAM
4 eggs, whisked
1 cup all purpose flour (120 g)
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 cup panko breadcrumbs (119 g)
1 cup unsweetened coconut shreds (71 g)
1. Slice your spam into thick cuts, in a shape resembling fries.
2. Prepare 3 bowls. One will have the eggs, the second will have all-purpose flour mixed with sugar and freshly ground black pepper, and the third will have the panko breadcrumbs mixed with unsweetened coconut shreds.
3. Take a spam cut and dip it in the egg, then coat it in the flour mixture. Dip it in the egg mixture again, then coat it in the panko coconut mixture. Repeat this for the rest of the Spam.
4. In a frying pan, heat your oil on medium heat. Fry up your spam until they’re golden brown.
Enjoy coconut-crusted spam fries while warm.
Special Notes: I highly recommend dipping these COCONUT-CRUSTED SPAM FRIES in BANANA KETCHUP. Yum!
1 can SPAM
1 pack mozzarella sticks
1 cup flour (120 g)
1/2 cup sugar (100 g)
Peanut oil or avocado oil for frying
For the batter:
1 egg, whisked
1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour (150 g)
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
¼ cup of milk (add 1 tbsp at a time to get your desired consistency)
1. In a bowl, combine the egg, flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
2. Pour in the milk, and start whisking together until there are no more lumps. If your mix is too thick, slowly add more milk just until the consistency makes it easy to dip your sticks in, but not too runny that it will completely fall off the stick.
3. Next, pour your batter into a tall glass. (check notes for an easier hack!)
4. Slice your SPAM into thick slices, about the same width as the mozzarella sticks, then slice the mozzarella sticks into four pieces to make smaller segments.
5. Skewer the mozzarella slices and the spam, alternating until you get 4 total.
6. On a plate, spread out 1 cup of flour. Coat your spam-mozzarella skewer with flour, then dip it into your batter.
7. Let the excess batter drip off, then dunking it in a frying pan or pot with hot oil.
8. Fry the SPAM Dogs until they're golden brown, then remove it from the oil.
9. In a separate plate, spread out ½ cup of granulated sugar. While the Spam Dog is still hot, coat the outside with the granulated sugar.
Special Notes: Instead of a tall glass, pour the batter in a plate to make it easier to coat the Spam Dog in batter.
