Spam Breakfast Hash

  • 1 can of Spam
  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 1 medium onion
  • vegetable or canola oil for frying
  • salt and pepper - to taste
Anything ham can do, Spam can do ("better" some might say). I made this hash as part of a double-Spam breakfast paired with a Spam Omelette. It was a Spam-tacular morning. The one thing I'd advise is to use fairly large potatoes for this hash. I used two medium potatoes as instructed and my ratio of meat to potatoes was just a bit too high. Other than that, this recipe works great. I had it again later in the day warmed in the skillet for 5 minutes and it was great as leftovers too. (Recipe submitted in 2005. It was tested and photographed in November 2013.)

Fry the potatoes until the begin to soften, stir in onions and continue to fry until the onions are lightly browned. Lastly, add the spam and cook until the meat is browned.

Season to taste and serve.

Making Spam Breakfast Hash

You can replace the potatoes with 1 can of whole potatoes, but it's not as good.

Haven't tried it yet but it looks like it would be a good way to use up leftover Spam and potatoes. I'm all about not wasting anything!

Jimborta does not contain any of these ingredients except onions and no self respecting Italian would ever eat Spam unless of course they were starving during WWII. Jimborta was a cheap end of week meal eaten by poor Italians when the food ran low at the end of the week. It is simply onions cooked down with roasted red peppers about a cup of left over gravy (tomato sauce) is added and 6 eggs are scrambled and added to the mix.

Thanks for the great suggestion Ted. I'm going to look up "Jimborta" right now.

If you add scrambled egg to this mixture you get what my family calls "Jimborta". Can be cooked as a pie/omelet, or just like you would cook scrambled eggs... my family loves this recipe, I also put in Italian seasoning and a pinch of garlic powder.
