  • 1 (12 oz.) can SPAM® classic canned meat
  • ½ bunch green onions
  • ½ red onion
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 2 cups Giant Eagle whole milk
  • 1 (4 oz.) pkg. Idahoan® homestyle buttery potatoes
  • ½ cup Giant Eagle shredded Mozzarella
  • ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 2 cups Giant Eagle sauerkraut, drained and rinsed
  • 1 Tbsp. Maille® whole grain mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. Market District extra virgin olive oil


Open and grate SPAM® on a box grater. Slice green onions. Peel and thinly slice red onion. Thinly slice celery on a bias.

Bring milk to a boil. Once boiling, stir in mashed potatoes, turn off heat and cover for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, stir in shredded Mozzarella cheese, SPAM®, green onions and black pepper.

Form mixture into golf balls and flatten into patties. Heat canola oil in a large sauté pan for one minute on high. After oil is heated, gently place cakes into pan (do not overcrowd). Sear for 2 minutes on each side and set aside until they are all done.

While cakes are cooking, mix together the sauerkraut, mustard, sliced onions, sliced celery and olive oil; mix well and set aside.

Serve cakes with sauerkraut garnish and enjoy!
