Spam Bites




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:

Batter:
1 Cup Flour
3 Eggs
1/2 Cup Buttermilk
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Pepper

Breading:
10 Saltines
2 Cups kettle chips

Filling:
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


Very tasty!

Thanks Blue Door Pub, you're the best!
