How to Make SPAM Pancake Fritters ! (and pancake donut balls)


  1. Beat batter ingredients together in bowl. Set aside until needed.
  2. Open can of SPAM. Cut into three equal slices. Cut each of the slices into strips (about the size of french fries).
  3. Heat the oil to 375 degrees.
  4. Dip the SPAM strips into the batter (one at a time). Place each battered strip into the hot oil. When golden, turn over. I only do 4 - 5 strips at a time as you don't want to crowd them and they cook quickly.
  5. Remove fritters to a paper towel lined plate to drain off oil.
  6. *** Any remaining batter can be cooked up as fried pancake donut balls... (if needed: add more flour to thicken dough). Fry them, drain them on paper towels... then shake in a bowl with powdered sugar. MMMMMMMM mmmm good!
