Meal prep doesn’t get much easier than this Glazed Baked Spam recipe!
Just slice the spam into even pieces. We like them fairly thin but not too thin. I usually get about 10 slices per can.
Then arrange the slices in a baking dish and pour the glaze over them as shown. Don’t forget to spray your baking dish first for easier clean up.
Glazed Baked Spam really only needs to cook about 20 minutes uncovered. If you overcook, the Spam will be dry. I personally love those end pieces charred, they are my favorite. It’s like eating the crust from a pound cake, that’s my part!
You can have this meal on the table in under 30 minutes.
