SPAM®, Halloumi and Avocado Kebabs with Sweet Chilli

Tuesday 28 May 2019
Post in collaboration with SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham

Barbecued SPAM®, Halloumi Cheese and Avocado Kebabs with Sweet Chilli are the perfect hipster showcase for the iconic meat in a tin. Chopped Pork and Ham brings Sizzle Pork And Mmm™ to any meal and works fantastically well on the BBQ. In addition to kebabs I've got SPAM® recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Think Mac ‘n’ Cheese, Hawaiian Style Pizza, Sizzling fajitas, Fries and SPAMBLED™ eggs. 

Summer will be on us before we know it and fingers crossed it will be another hot one! If you’re looking for some new and interesting recipes for the BBQ this year, why not try out iconic meat SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham to make some delicious sizzling snacks to enjoy in the garden or on the campsite. If the weather doesn't play ball these will work equally well on a griddle pan or under the grill. SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham is the perfect quick and easy meat for an alfresco feast that will impress friends and family. It’s already cooked in the can, to seal in the goodness and ensure safety - which makes it ideal for camping and festival season. 

Treat your guests to something much more exciting than the usual bangers and burgers on the BBQ this summer; made from more than 90% shoulder pork and leg ham, SPAM® is both uniquely tasty and versatile. Dice, slice and grill for a variety of quick, easy and satisfyingly tasty snacks. Whether it’s the popular SPAMBURGER™, the SPAM® BBQ Kebab or a chunky toasted SPAM® Tortilla Sandwich, there’s a recipe to please every alfresco diner. For extra convenience in addition to the traditional tin you can now get SPAM® in a lightweight and easy to open tub making it even easier and convenient to enjoy SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham in the great outdoors. 

My love for SPAM® is unashamed. Over the years it has been maligned, celebrated and musicalised. SPAM® Fritters were one of my absolute favourite school dinners back in the 80's accompanied by the obligatory ice cream scoops of mash and spaghetti in tomato sauce. What does SPAM® mean to you? Monty Python? School Dinners? Guilty Pleasure?! 

To celebrate National BBQ Week which returns for a 23rd time from 27th May - 2nd June 2019, I've put a hipster twist on SPAM® kebabs by combining Chopped Pork and Ham with the ingredients of the moment - namely avocado and halloumi cheese. All three work fantastically well on the BBQ and Sweet Chilli Sauce provides a convenient and tasty glaze. Mix up the flavour combinations by including additional items such as mushrooms, red onion, pineapple, cherry tomatoes etc.
