Spam Frittatas



Since we are leaving Hawaii, I though I'd share some recipes that have island inspired ingredients.

Spam, without a doubt, is a Hawaiian staple and is found in a lot of local foods. I happen to love the stuff. If you're not too keen on Spam, I totally recommend replacing it with ham.

These are so simple to put together, they are perfect for parties, especially brunches. I enjoy making individual portions by using muffin pans when I can, because it provides the perfect serving size for each guest.

They are also wonderful for storing in the refrigerator and reheating for a quick breakfast or after school snack for the kiddos.

I hope you'll find an excuse to make these... since they're so cute... and simple to make.......

....... Mother's Day (hint, hint).

Seriously, though, make them... they're pretty tasty!


Spam Frittatas

  • 1 Teaspoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Can (12 OZ.) Spam
  • 2 Sprigs Of Green Onion
  • 6 Whole Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Whole Milk
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 2/3 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees (F).

Begin by heating the olive oil on medium/low heat in a large non-stick skillet. Dice the Spam into very small cubes. Once the oil is heated, add the Spam and brown until lightly crisp, stirring often so not to burn. 

In the meantime, finely dice the green onion and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and garlic powder together until fluffy and well combined. 

Once the Spam is done, remove to a plate lined with paper towels to drain a bit. Spray one muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray. Divide the Spam and cheese evenly between the 12 muffin molds. Ladle the egg mixture over the spam and cheese, evenly. Top each frittata with green onion and bake for 22-24 minutes, or until the frittata puffs up and is set. Serve warm. Makes 12 frittatas. 

Enjoy!
