Spam fried potatoes are delicious and easy to make.

Spam Fried Potatoes

Spam has never been a favorite of mine but these spam fried potatoes are so good you will like them even if you don’t like spam.  My mother made spam all the time when I was a child and burnt me completely out on this meat.  I recently read where spam is making a comeback and decided to try it again.  This skillet recipe is wonderful for breakfast or just anytime you want an easy weeknight meal.  We loved this for breakfast with a fried egg on top and shredded cheese with lots of black pepper.  You could double this recipe or cut it in half.  It keeps well in the fridge for several days and can be reheated in the skillet or microwave.  You might also like our recipe for Cajun style roasted potatoes.

Spam fried potatoes will surprise you at how good they really are!

4 to 5 large potatoes, peeled and cubed

1 green pepper, chopped (I used a combination of green and red sweet peppers)

1/2 cup chopped green onion or regular onion

1 (12 ounce) can of spam, chopped

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/3 cup cooking oil (vegetable, canola or olive)

2 to 3 tablespoons bacon drippings, (optional)

Combine the cubed potatoes, chopped peppers, onion and chopped spam in a large mixing bowl.  In a smaller bowl whisk together the flour, black pepper, salt and garlic powder.  Add flour mixture to chopped potatoes and spam mixture and toss to coat all ingredients.  Heat oil and bacon drippings in a large skillet on top of the stove.  Add the potatoes and spam and brown uncovered on high for about five minutes.  Cover and turn down heat to medium and cook 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender.  Remove cover and cook until potatoes are browned and crispy.  Makes 6 to 8 servings.  Enjoy!

Note:  You can use less pepper, salt and garlic powder if you don’t like a lot in your food.  We love a lot!
