Breakfast Musubi with SPAM #HormelFamily

I have been working with Hormel Foods for a number of months now trying out some of their food products, and creating recipes based on certain items they send me. It is no secret that I love their Cure 81 Ham, Mary Kitchen hash (probably my favorite of everything they make), and the Natural Choice meats — in addition to some of their other products including the Natural Skippy peanut butters and Chi-Chi’s salsa products.

This month when they sent me some of their SPAM in the Teriyaki flavor I will admit I left it sit on the counter for quite some time before deciding what to do with it. Although I do like Spam (I find it a tad salty but otherwise good), I really wasn’t sure about the Teriyaki flavor. After finally getting up the nerve (and the time) to try something new, I discovered that I actually really like it, probably more-so than the original flavor! See kids– it is good to try new things. 🙂

What I ended up making was a variation of the Breakfast Musubi recipe they have featured on their site. I truly is a simple recipe, and in fact so simple you can make quite a few meals out of one can of SPAM. I think if you are looking for something that is really quick, easy, and a great way to use up some left-over rice, this will be a great recipe for you to try!

The only thing that I didn’t have on hand that would truly make this a Musubi recipe was the Nori (seaweed). I would have used it had I had any on hand, but I didn’t feel it necessary to run to the store just for that one item. Feel free to use it if you have it!

  • 1 12-ounce can SPAM® Classic, cut lengthwise into 10 slices
  • 4.5 oz White steamed rice, cooked ahead of time
  • 4 sheets Japanese Nori, cut in half (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 each Egg, cooked flat or scrambled
  • Soy sauce for drizzling (optional).


  1. Heat sauté pan with 1 Tbsp oil and sear SPAM® Teriyaki on both sides for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Remove from pan and add rest of oil, then cook egg - scrambling or flat (omelet style).
  3. Using a sushi press create your rice shape, then layer the SPAM and egg on top. Wrap with Nori if desired and drizzle with soy sauce.
  4. Serve warm.


If you have a sushi press it makes this recipe really easy. Simply add your rice to the container and press. One suggestion I would make is to use a little less rice than what the directions state. I felt this dish was overwhelmingly rice flavored and not enough egg and SPAM. If you don't have a sushi press, just place all your ingredients in your Nori and wrap.
