Ingredients

  • 1 can Spam
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1/2 cup Pepper Jelly
  • Chef notes

    Spam has always been underrated and under appreciated, but Spam’s history is steeped in culinary tradition. This recipe is one of the best ways to ease people into the wonder world of Spam. Besides, who doesn't love bacon-wrapped anything?

    Technique tip: Always line your sheet pan with foil when making these tasty poppers, otherwise you will never, and I mean never ever, get the baked-on caramelized goo off the pan.

     

    Preparation

    1.

    Remove the Spam from the can and cut it into 16 bite-sized pieces. 

    2.

    Put the Spam in a plastic bag with the brown sugar and shake the bag until you have coated all sides of the meat cubes. 

    3.

    Cut 8 slices of bacon in half.

    4.

    Wrap each spam cube with half a piece of bacon and secure it with a toothpick.

    5.

    In a small sauce pan, melt the pepper jelly over low heat.

    6.

    Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

    7.

    Place the bacon-wrapped Spam on a sheet pan lined with foil and bake for 8 minutes.

    8.

    Take the poppers out of the oven and brush each popper with pepper jelly. 

    9.

    Put the pan back in the oven to cook for another 5 minutes, or until bacon is cooked.

    10.

    Take the poppers out of the oven and brush them again with another thin coating pepper jelly. 

    11.

    Remove the poppers from the sheet pan immediately to avoid sticking and serve while still warm.
