Here is your shopping list for this easy breakfast casserole: a can of SPAM, frozen hash brown patties, cheddar cheese (slices and shredded), eggs, milk and black pepper. The hearty ingredients are layered in a casserole dish and then baked until the eggs are set. So easy!

Fun SPAM Fact: According to TIME magazine, "Ken Digneau, the brother of a Hormel executive, came up with the name – a portmanteau word for 'spiced ham' – in a naming contest and got $100 as a reward. The new product was introduced on July 5, 1937."

Recipe Notes

  • This breakfast casserole could be made with sliced deli ham instead of SPAM.
  • Add some chopped green onions or fresh chives to the eggs for a little freshness.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Arrange a layer of hash brown patties on the bottom of a 13x9-inch baking pan that's been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Arrange 6 slices of cheese over that layer.
  3. Cut the SPAM into 12 slices and arrange over the cheese.
  4. Combine the milk and eggs and whisk until lightly beaten.
  5. Pour egg mixture over SPAM layer.
  6. Top with shredded cheese and black pepper, to taste.
  7. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 1 hour. Check to be sure middle is firm. If not, cook in 10 minute increments, until center is firm. Remove foil and brown cheese 5 minutes.
  8. Slice and serve.

This sounds delicious! I grew up eating SPAM. Fried SPAM and eggs, fried SPAM sandwiches, fried SPAM and baked beans. You can even chop it up, fry it and add it to macaroni and cheese. Yum. Having childhood flashbacks. Great recipe, Heather Holter !
Elisa Schmitz
Hmm, you're making me re-think SPAM. I didn't know the history of it. This casserole looks really yummy!
Heather Holter
I HATE spam but bc it's in the dish you can barely tell and it just adds flavor. If you want it crisp you can fry ahead first, or dice it small and people may think it's ham.
