Spiced Luncheon Meat

  The Southern Living The Low Cost Cookbook has a variety of simple and low cost  recipes. One that caught my eye was Spiced Lunch Meat. Spam is a favorite of my husbands and Bettie likes it also. This recipe calls for pineapple which is a very favorite food of Bettie's so I was in luck all around.
  I served this with home fried potatoes which we all like and mixed steamed veggies. 
The enamelware plate in the picture was one of my Grandmothers. I also have some of her bowls and treasure them. If you like spam, this is a good recipe to try.
Spiced Luncheon Meat
1 can Luncheon Meat
1 small can crushed pineapple
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon cloves
½ teaspoon nutmeg (opt.)
⅓ cup honey or maple syrup
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  Slice the luncheon meat and place in a baking pan. Drain the pineapple and reserve juice. Place reserved juice in a saucepan and add the spices and honey. Bring to a boil. Mix cornstarch with small amount of water and stir into the honey mixture. Add the pineapple and spread over meat. Bake at 350° for about 20 minutes.


  1. Ladies, you usually have me at just the photo that accompanies the recipe but this time......not so much. I do however give you thumbs up for trying to include all two of your Spam lovers. LOL

  2. However, the potatoes were excellent. I am not a great spam eater my self.

  3. We love spam! Glad to get a new recipe - thank you.

    1. Lyle said he thought this was a lot like a good ham topping. Now they think I should make it as it has been awhile since I did.
