Spam is popular throughout the Hawaiian Islands, and many family favorite recipes include Spam as a major ingredient. This is a classic appetizer that can be grilled outdoors or roasted in an oven (when poor weather doesn't permit cooking outdoors).

So put aside the cringing thoughts about Spam and give this quick and easy recipe a try. I think you'll find that it's actually quite a delicious little snack that's perfect for Luau-themed parties or anytime you're craving a quick trip to the islands.

Need a quick and easy appetizer? Look no further than these Spam bites (trust us). They're juicy and the hickory-smoked flavor shines through. We love the spice rub. It balances out the flavor of the Spam and bacon. Sweet and tangy, the honey mustard is perfect for dipping. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Bacon Wrapped Spam Bites With Spicy Honey Mustard

Test Kitchen Tips
Depending on how crispy you like bacon, these may need to be cooked longer. We baked ours for about 35 minutes.

Step-by-Step

  1. Whisk together the Dijon mustard, honey, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce until well blended, and set aside until ready to serve. (It's best served at room temperature, so you won't need to refrigerate the spicy honey mustard.)
  2. Place all of the spice rub ingredients in a gallon-size Ziploc bag, and shake well until thoroughly blended.
  3. Cut the Spam into 16 cubes. Place Spam cubes in Ziploc bag and shake until cubes are coated with the seasoning rub.
  4. Lie the 16 bacon slices on a flat surface. Place one seasoned Spam cube at the tip of each bacon slice, and roll to the other end so that the top and bottom of Spam is wrapped inside the bacon slice, leaving the sides open (i.e., so sides aren't wrapped in bacon). Secure the end with a toothpick or short skewer.
  5. FOR GRILLING:
    Place Spam Bites on hot for grill 7 to 10 minutes or until bacon is crisp-cooked but still moist, turning frequently for even grilling.

    FOR OVEN-BAKING:
    Spam Bites can also be placed on a foiled lined baking sheet and roasted in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes at 375°F. It's best to have about an inch space between them, as they'll stick together and tear the bacon wrap if too close together on the baking sheet.

The Mediterranean “diet” has been popular for years, but it’s really not a diet. More so, it’s a healthier eating lifestyle that limits processed foods. It gets its name because it includes foods from regions around the Mediterranean Sea, like Greece, Italy, and Spain. Vegetables, whole grains, legumes, fish, and healthy fats (such as olive […]
