Spam-tastic!! Even if I did make the mistake of adding all the glaze ingredients into the meat mixture. I also cut the milk back to 1/2 cup as the others thought the cupcakes were hard to get out of the pan. They did come out easy with the help of a little fork. I think I needed more butter in my mashed potatoes to help the top brown as I broiled them.
Made these for last night's early supper because the name intrigued me. I liked the taste but the glaze burned black and the muffins were impossible to lift; finally ended up spooning them out so couldn't top them with the mashed. I'll try again because the taste was good and I just might have overcooked them. Thanks for sharing, BigFatMomma, I bought my first can of Spam in over twenty years! LOL
Thanks to the History Channel, I ventured into Spam territory! This was easy enough to make (I cut it in half, since there are only 2 of us). I used paper cupcake cups in the cupcake tin and it made it very easy to take them out. Did not spray with Pam. I'm lazy, so served the mashed pots (with chive tops added in) on the side along with boiled cabbage. We loved it, but... may want to make it as a "meatloaf" - make it 1¼ C. quick oats to keep it from flaking apart. This would be wonderful cooked, cooled and then sliced for sandwiches. I'm going to add about ¼ C. chopped, sauteed onions next time! BigfatMomma, thanks for my introduction to Spam!!
