I know what you're thinking, Spam!? Trust me people I know what I'm doing here I am an experienced eater.
For years my husband and I have been going to our all time favorite burger joint Blue Door Pub, yes I talk about them to much I know. I just can't seem to get their fabulous food out of my mind I may be addicted!
Our favorite appetizer there are the Spam Bites. Basically Cream Cheese, Spam, Pickles and Crunch.
You may or may not want to dunk them into a Jalapeno Jelly, but I do have a recipe for that too!
Here is some Spam history for you to read ya know if you're curious haha!
I know you're dying for me to tell you how to make them to lets get to it!
What you need:
1 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup Buttermilk
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
2 Cups kettle chips
1/2 Small can Spam
1/4 Cup Pickles, your choice of brand (I used my homemade pickles)
1 Package of cream cheese, room temperature
Vegetable Oil for frying
How to make them:
For the batter combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl
Next for the breading pulse the crackers and chips and set aside
Now cube up your Spam and chop up your pickles, place into a food processor, pulse again but don't over mix
Take your cream cheese form about a 1 1/2 inch ball, flatten out fill with the Spam and pickle mixture, combine with the cream cheese, keeping a ball shape.
Once all of your balls are made, pop into the fridge for a half an hour.
Start heating your oil.
Take your balls dip into the batter then the breading , now place into the hot oil.
Fry until browned, drain on a paper towel. Serve with a jalapeno jelly
Thanks Blue Door Pub, you're the best!
