Spam®, Cheese, and Spinach Muffins

Made these on a whim for me and my boyfriend! They didn’t last very long!

Original recipe makes 12 muffins


1 (12 ounce) can fully cooked luncheon meat (such as SPAM®), chopped
1 1/2 cups whole wheat all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1 cup milk
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup chopped fresh spinach

  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.
