Last week, we did the roundup on how cupcakes were coming back.

One variation on the trend that we missed: Spam cupcakes.

We regret this sin of omission.

To compensate, we hereby reprint the recipe from the Spam Web site:



For Cupcakes:
2 SPAM® Classic (12-ounce) cans
2 eggs slightly beaten
2/3 cup quick cooking oatmeal
3/4 cup milk

For Glaze:
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 tablespoon water

4 cups prepared instant mashed potatoes
Snipped fresh chives for garnish

(15 grams or less of carbs per serving)

Servings: 12
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Directions Preheat oven to 350°F. For cupcakes, in large bowl, grate SPAM®. Add eggs, oatmeal and milk; mix well. Lightly spray a regular size muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Fill each muffin tin two-thirds full with SPAM™ mixture. Using the back of a spoon, lightly press mixture into tins. In small bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, mustard, vinegar and water. Lightly spoon glaze mixture over SPAM™ mixture. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until mixture is set. Meanwhile, prepare 4 cups of instant mashed potatoes. Remove cupcakes from oven. Place oven rack 2-3 inches from heat source and heat broiler. Top each cupcake with potatoes. Return muffin tin to oven. Broil 2-3 minutes or until potatoes are lightly browned. Garnish with fresh chives and serve. Tip: For best results, let cupcakes stand 5 minutes before removing from pan.
