Can you air fry spam?
In a word yes. Should you air fry spam? In two words, hells yes. O.k. you want more info. Here’s a basics of how to air fry spam:
- Preheat air fryer
- When ready, set temperature to 400F and cook for four minutes, shaking half way through.
- Cook for 5-6 minutes for extra crispy spam, or if you’ve cut thicker slices
We used the COSORI to air fry this (affiliate link, we get a fee), always check your food with a good kitchen thermometer.
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.
Buy Spam on Amazon here (affiliate link). Amazon has a huge range of spam items, most shipping quickly via Prime, and more often than not cheaper than local grocery stores.
