No, no I’m not mad. If you haven’t tried crisped spam, you’re really missing a trick. Way back in the day I’d pan fry spam, but these days with my trusty air fryer, it just takes four or five minutes and much less fuss. See here for our Spam fries recipe too.

Spam is pretty fatty to begin with so you don’t need any oil, it will naturally crisp up. And when it’s hot, salty and crispy it’s a real treat as part of a breakfast plate, or sandwich as seen below.
