SPAM Bacon Carbonara


Just in case you’re thinking that we store SPAM as a regular staple in our pantry, we don’t, but after the few recipes that we’ve tried, we might have to include it.  Tinned tuna and sardines can get tiresome after a while so when fresh meat isn’t available, SPAM does the trick.  Here is another delicious recipe that we tried out while camping at Somerset on Cape York – super easy and super yummy, we had to add it to our SPAM series.



  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tin of SPAM with bacon
  • 1-2 tsp minced garlic (depending on how much you love garlic)
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1-2 tsp butter
  • 1 packet of quick Carbonara pasta (we used San Remo)
  • Spring onion, pepper and chilli flakes to taste




  • Dice the SPAM and finely chop the broccoli.
  • Heat olive oil in a pot and cook spam, broccoli and garlic together for about 5 minutes or until the SPAM is browning.
  • Add the required water for the Carbonara recipe and bring to the boil.
  • Add the butter and contents of the Carbonara packet. Stir and cook for the required length of time as specified on Carbonara packet.
  • Add chopped spring onion, pepper and chilli flakes to taste, dish out and eat. Serves 3.


This meal was delicious, even as leftovers the next day.  Really tasty.
