  • 1 cup Rice uncooked
  • 2 cups Water
  • 6 tbsp Rice Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Soy Sauce, Coconut Aminos, or Liquid Aminos
  • 1/4 cup Oyster Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Hoisin Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Sugar white
  • 12 oz SPAM, Low Sodium
  • 8 large Eggs
  • 6 sheets Nori
  • Sesame seeds optional


Rice Preparation

  • Add water to a large pot and bring to a boil. Add rice, reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook 18 minutes (until water is absorbed).
  • Once rice is cooked, add rice vinegar to pot and gently stir to incorporate. 

Egg Preparation

  • Crack eggs into a small bowl and add salt and pepper to taste. Beat with a fork until combined. 
  • Spray 1/4 sized baking sheet (or 9" x 13" baking dish) with cooking spray and pour in eggs. 
  • Bake in preheated oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. 
  • Cut into 12 slices (see photo in post above).

SPAM Preparation

  • Mix soy sauce, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce and sugar in a small bowl. 
  • Open SPAM and carefully run a knife around the edge of the can to loosen the SPAM from the can. As evenly as possible, cut SPAM into 12 slices (see photos in post above). 
  • Lay SPAM on a separate 1/4 sized baking sheet (or another 9" x 13" pan or Ziplock baggie). Pour sauce prepared above over SPAM and let marinate for 15 minutes, flipping SPAM half way through marinating. 
  • Cook SPAM for 15 minutes in the same 400 degree oven until SPAM is warmed through.*


  • On a cutting board with a sharp knife, split the 6 nori sheets in half. 
  • With a spoon, divide the rice into 12 portions. 
  • Wet hands with water, and mold rice in hands to approximate shape and as the SPAM. 
  • Place formed rice on middle of nori sheet. 
  • Drizzle spoonful (~1-2 tablespoons) of sauce, from cooked SPAM, onto rice. If desired, sprinkle sesame seeds on top of rice.  
  • Place 1/12 portion/slice of SPAM onto rice. 
  • Add an egg slice on top of SPAM. 
  • Wet edges of nori with a finger and fold the ends inward. 
  • Wrap completed SPAM Musubi Roll in plastic wrap. 
  • Repeat assembly steps above to complete remaining 12 rolls.
  • For the best flavor, let SPAM Musubi Rolls sit for at least 15-30 minutes to allow flavors to meld and for nori to soften.
