  • 1 can SPAM or luncheon meat sliced
  • 4 large eggs beaten
  • 40 ml rice vinegar
  • 5 g granulated sugar
  • 2 C cooked sushi rice
  • 2 sheets nori seaweed cut into 1" strips


Prepare the Spam/luncheon meat and eggs:

  • In a large frying pan over medium heat, pan-fry slice of SPAM, until crisp and lightly browned.
  • Drain on paper towel and set aside.
  • Lightly wipe away the excess grease from the pan.
  • Add in the beaten eggs in 2 batches and cook omelette style, flipping halfway through, until both sides are lightly golden.
  • Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Fold up the omelette into a width similar to the SPAM slices and cut with a sharp knife.
  • Set aside.

Season the rice:

  • In a small saucepan, add in the sushi rice vinegar and sugar.
  • Heat over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat.
  • Carefully drizzle and fan in the rice vinegar into the hot, cooked sushi rice.
  • Mix with a rice paddle until the rice is combined with the vinegar.


  • With wet hands, take about 3 tablespoon of rice and press into the shape of the Spam.
  • Next, place a folded egg omelette on the rice.
  • Add a slice of Spam onto the egg.
  • Wrap the nori seaweed strip around the centre of the musubi.
  • Repeat with the remainder.
