  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease 12 muffin cups.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir luncheon meat until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes.
  3. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, garlic powder, pepper, and paprika together in a bowl. Mix luncheon meat, milk, Cheddar cheese, butter, spinach, egg, onion, and basil together in a separate bowl; slowly stir into flour mixture just until batter is mixed. Pour batter into muffin cups until each is 3/4-full.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 33 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Regular all-purpose flour should work fine.
  • I had no problem using a shredded cheese blend. Add more cheese if you want. This is an easy and forgiving recipe.
  • If you opt out of using Spam(R), I would add a few extra pinches of salt. Bacon, ham, or sausage can also be substituted for the Spam(R).
