I saw the original recipe for this in the "America's Best Brand Name Recipes" cookbook. And I "tweaked" a couple of things in it to more suit my tastes. If desired serve with your favorite biscuit or cornbread recipe.If you don't like Spam©, just substitute the same amount of ham or other cooked meat. Submitted to "ZAAR" on September 24, 2007.
- 3⁄4 cup chopped sweet onion
- 3 tablespoons butter or 3 tablespoons margarine
- 2 cups frozen cubed hash brown potatoes, thawed
- 1 (12 ounce) can Spam, diced into small cubes
- 1 1⁄2 cups frozen peas and carrots
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt (to taste)
- 3⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese (optional)
- In a large non stick skillet over medium heat, melt margarine and cook onion until softened.
- Add potatoes and cook until lightly browned.
- Then add spam and veggies, sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper.
- Stir occasionally until meat is slightly browned.
- Top with cheese if desired, and let set for 5 minutes.
