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!
