Road Trip-Ready Spam Musubi
Three things make long drives worth it: good company, music, and snacks. For your next road trip, don’t settle for whatever you can scrounge up at the first convenience store. Pack homemade Spam musubi for the whole barkada!
Musubi is another word for onigiri: a rice ball with savory fillings. Despite its Japanese origins, the handheld snack is a purely Hawaiian creation, as beloved as loco moco and poke bowls. Typical Spam musubi recipes consist of teriyaki-glazed meat and rice wrapped in nori. This version makes it more interesting with kimchi, hot sauce, and Lady’s Choice Real Mayonnaise. It’s the perfect grab-and-go snack to have in the car.
- 3 tbsp oil, divided
- 1 can Spam or any luncheon meat, sliced into 6-8 pieces
- 1/2 cup kimchi, chopped
- 3 cups day-old cooked rice
- 1/2 cup Lady’s Choice Real Mayonnaise
- 1-2 tbsp sriracha or hot sauce
- 2 sheets nori, cut into quarters
Once you’ve mastered the basics of making Spam musubi, you can go wild with different combinations. Add a layer of scrambled eggs to make a protein-rich, on-the-go breakfast. Sprinkle furikake, a savory Japanese seasoning, over the rice for extra umami. Try grilling the meat to give it a smoky flavor. Love sweet and savory together? Sneak some pineapple bits in there for a juicy surprise! And if you need more veggies and freshness, you can’t go wrong with lettuce, cucumber, and avocado.
