I must confess many moons ago in my pre-vegan days I was quite partial to a spam fritter from the chip shop so when we were coming up with dinner ideas using the Fry’s polony sausage we had bought it was no contest.
The frozen polony is quite large so you have to use it almost all at once or on consecutive days as you can’t re-freeze it. I think it would be worthwhile halving the size of this as 500g is quite a lot to get through.
I seasoned some self-raising flour with cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, salt and pepper and added sparkling water to make the batter. Next time I would add more flour as I found it quite thin. I deep fried the slices of the polony and then kept warm in the oven while I fried the chips. Served with mushy peas and ketchup this was a great easy tea.
I’m going to use the rest of the polony to make pea and ham soup.
