I absolutely love Halloween! It’s my favourite time of the year when we’re encouraged to dress up and be playful. I’ve always loved Halloween, and I love Halloween food! Any excuse for a party!
Let me introduce to you my first Halloween recipe for this year – Spooky SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham “Bones” with SKIPPY® Peanut Butter Noodles! Perfect for kids’ parties, this peanut satay-like sauce only needs three simple store-cupboard ingredients to make. Throw in some SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham “Bones”, some carrot “Bones” and some straight-to-wok wiggly worm noodles and you’ve got a recipe your little trick or treaters are going to love!
INGREDIENTS NEEDED FOR THIS HALLOWEEN STIR-FRY RECIPE
- SPAM®Chopped Pork and Ham – a 340-gram tin slices into good thick slices perfect for cutting out with a bone shaped cookie cutter
- SKIPPY® Peanut Butter – smooth or crunchy, whatever you prefer
- dark soy sauce – you can use regular soy sauce, but dark gives a much better flavour
- Thai sweet chilli sauce – this gives your sweet and spicy flavours, but not too strong so it’s not palatable for children
- sunflower oil – for frying the SPAM® (listen out for that gorgeous sizzle!)
- carrots – for cutting into vegetable bones. If yours aren’t wide enough, slice them lengthwise
- frozen peas – because kids love peas
- straight-to-wok medium noodles – to save time (and because they look like worms!)
- roasted peanuts – to garnish
- fresh coriander leaves – to garnish
- a little water – to dilute the sauce
- candy eyes – optional, just for a bit of fun

SPAM® CHOPPED PORK AND HAM
SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham came to our UK kitchens in 1941 during the war as an alternative to corned beef. It rose quickly in popularity, selling its one billionth can in the 1950s. In the 1960s SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham fritters regularly appeared on British school menus.
This iconic product is originally from the US when, in 1937, the Hormel Food Company of Minnesota dealt with a problem they had of too much pork shoulder. The idea to grind the pork shoulder and mix it with ham, cooking it in a tin to create a long life product was born, and now, over 80 years later, it’s still going strong!
An incredibly versatile ingredient, SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham is made from a minimum of 90% shoulder pork and leg ham. The 200g tub is currently available in the UK from Tesco and Asda while 200g and 340g cans are available from all major UK supermarkets. Visit the SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham website for more recipe inspiration!
SKIPPY® PEANUT BUTTER
SKIPPY® Peanut Butter has a US heritage that spans more than 80 years. In 1933, Joseph Rosenfield changed the formula for peanut butter to create SKIPPY® Peanut Butter, which was less sticky and longer-lasting than what was on the market at the time.
Made from only the finest American peanuts to give a unique nut-packed taste and a creamy texture that melts in the mouth, millions of Americans enjoy SKIPPY® Peanut Butter daily and it’s now the UK’s turn to ‘Go Nuts’.
Protein is important in our daily diets, and SKIPPY® Peanut Butter is delicious and a great source of protein, providing 22.1g per 100g. You can find SKIPPY® Peanut Butter on Amazon. Visit the SKIPPY® Peanut Butter website for more recipe inspiration!
Don’t throw away those leftover bits of SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham after cutting out your bone shapes with a cookie cutter. Leftovers will keep up to two days, covered, in the fridge, and you can whip up a spooky Halloween themed scrambled egg breakfast with them!
