If you’re anything like me, when you hear the word Spam, your mind doesn’t conjure up images of delicious meals with the canned good at the center. One recipe, though, might change that.
You can make air-fried Spam fries, and they actually look pretty good.
The chefs over at America’s Test Kitchen have crafted a recipe for creating crispy, French fry-like Spam, and it’s surprisingly easy. The recipe comes courtesy of recipe developer Sam Block, and all you need to craft the fries is Spam (duh), Panko breadcrumbs, vegetable oil, an egg, flour, and vegetable oil spray.
You’ll add the Panko and vegetable oil together and mix them before microwaving for a few moments. Let the mixture cool and create an egg wash with a little bit of flour and slice the Spam into fry-like lengths.
Dredge the newfound fries in egg wash and coat them in Panko. Spray the inside of your air fryer with oil and place the fries inside. Set the temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and cook for five to seven minutes, and you’re done!
