Cook Time

Cook Method


¼ cup flour
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 (12-ounce) can SPAM® Classic, cut into 8 slices
Vegetable oil
3 cups cooked white sushi rice
4 frozen waffles, toasted and cut in half
2 sheets nori, cut lengthwise in quarters
1 cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons cayenne pepper hot sauce


  1. Place flour, eggs and breadcrumbs in separate shallow dishes. Dredge SPAM® Classic slices in flour, dip in eggs and roll in breadcrumbs.

  2. In large skillet, pour enough vegetable oil to cover bottom by 1-inch. Heat oil over medium-high heat. Add breaded SPAM® Classic slices to skillet and fry 3 to 5 minutes, turning once, until golden brown. Remove from skillet.

  3. With moist hands, mold rice into eight blocks with same dimensions as SPAM® slices. Place rice blocks on halved waffles. Top with breaded SPAM® Classic slice. Wrap individual nori strips around each middle, moistening edge of nori to fasten it.

  4. In small bowl, combine maple syrup and hot sauce. Serve on side or drizzle on.
