SPAM you’ll want to receive! Try slicing this canned camping favorite and using it as a crust!  Here’s how:

Close iron and cook over a fire or grill until golden on both sides.  Cook the bread-side first to prevent egg from running under the SPAM in your iron.


It’s a crispy-salty-ooey-gooey treat!

  • 1 egg
  • American cheese, 1 slice
  • onion, chopped
  • mayonnaise
  • SPAM, sliced about 3/8″ thick
  • high heat  cooking spray


Spray one side of pie iron with cooking spray and fill with slices of SPAM.  Butter white bread slice, place butter-side down in other side of iron, and gently press down on the center of the bread.  Crack one egg onto the bread and use a fork to break the yoke and carefully spread it around.  Top egg with American cheese, mayonnaise, and chopped onion.  Close iron and place over fire or grill cooking the bread-side first to set egg.  Flip and continue cooking until both sides are a crispy golden brown.

It’s been a busy time here at Pudgie Headquarters!  We’ve been getting  a lot of great press lately and people are really excited about Pudgie Revolution!  Big thanks to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, The Isthmus, The Capital Times, and The Daily Jefferson County Union for publishing some fantastic features on the book and spreading the pudgie love near and far.  We also had the opportunity to talk pudgies with Kurt Baron on his Forward podcast.  It’s been a ton of fun to tell our story and extoll the virtues of pie iron cooking.

We also released the latest installment of our Pudgie University video series, featuring helpful hints and hilarious puns pertaining to a recipe from the book called Peachy Keen.  Liv and Carrie demonstrate the keen art of constructing a pudgie with a pound cake crust and delicious fruity filling.  You don’t want to miss it!

Finally, we’ll be out this Saturday (5/16) at the Mad City Bazaar on the corner of East Washington Avenue and First Street in Madison.  Stop on by to say hello, tell us about your own creative pudgie pie endeavors, and pick up a few extra copies of the book for friends and family.  Hope to see you there!
