I‘ve loved spam for a long as I can remember. It was a pantry item we always had in the house growing up. My mom would always make it for my family and pair it with some white rice, eggs and ketchup. So basic, yet SO GOOD. We would have it for breakfast, we would have it for dinner, it did not matter. So, essentially I learned to love it from her. I moved to Las Vegas at one point in my life and I would continue that tradition whenever I would get home sick. It reminded me of home and my Mom.
Musubi is another form of the spam and rice I would eat. So, naturally I automatically loved this when I first tried it. It is so easy and fun to make and extremely cost effective. It is perfect for breakfast, a snack, lunch or dinner. It is one of those items that truly is perfect at anytime when you need some comfort food.
Most of us seem to have an aversion to spam. In my experience, anytime anyone hears spam they get squeamish. But, I am here to tell you that there is no reason to steer clear and you will be pleasantly surprised because this popular Hawaiian item that is layered with sticky tangy rice, crispy soy glazed spam, furikake, more sticky rice and wrapped in flavorful nori sheet is totally addictive. Serve it will a dipping sauce on the side and BAM! You will have the tastiest Asian sandwich right in your own hands.
