SPAM Ice Cream recipe

SPAM® Ice Cream

1 (12 ounce) can SPAM® with Real Hormel Bacon

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup real maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups heavy cream

2 cups milk

3/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons bourbon vanilla

Pinch salt


Dice SPAM® into 1/4-inch cubes. Put in large skillet with brown sugar, maple syrup and vanilla. Cook over medium heat until bubbly, then reduce heat by a third and cook 2-3 more minutes. Set aside to cool. In large mixing bowl, combine cream, milk, sugar, bourbon vanilla, and salt. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Following your ice cream maker’s manufacturer instructions, freeze the ice cream. While soft, pour into storage container. Fold in the SPAM mixture, just swirling it into the ice cream, and not overmixing. Freeze until serving.
