Breakfast for me!


The perfect breakfast dish (with Daddies sauce). But not everyday or my waistline would suffer.

Printable 🖨 shopping 🛒 list & 👩‍🍳 method for this recipe

  • 1 tin Spam, cut into 10 mm (1/2" slices) or thinner
  • Oil for frying

Batter mix


  1. Add all of the dry batter ingredients to a bowl, then whisking well, add just enough fluid (Guinness, bitter, or the milk/water mix) to make a thick batter. Add the egg and mix it in extremely well.
  2. Rest the batter in the refrigerator for 20 minutes if you can
  3. Dip each piece of spam in a saucer of plain flour and knock off any excess (this helps the batter mix to stick)
  4. Dip each piece of spam in the batter
  5. Heat a shallow frying pan with a little oil. When it has just started to smoke, reduce the heat a little and fry the fritters a few at a time for 3 minutes a side

Serving suggestions

Serve hot with baked beans, chips and Branston pickle or OK Sauce


To make it easier to dip the pieces of spam in the batter, use a fork and spear the slice about 1 cm from its end. Have the bowl of batter as close to the frying pan as possible, then dip the Spam and transfer into the hot oil immediately. Slide the fritter off the fork with a knife or other metal implement. Do not use your fingers at any point - severe burns can occur!!

Alternatively, if you're handy with a pair of chopsticks, you can grip the end of the Spam with them and do the dipping and transferring that way. For me, the only disadvantage of this method is that there is always a 'naked' uncovered bit on the fritter. Forking it is the only way!!!
