Hotdog Musubi Sushi Rolls

Hot Dog Musubi Sushi Rolls | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

I’m standing in my kitchen and staring into my pantry at packs of nori seaweed and think how much my boys would love some Spam Musubi. I considered Chicken Musubi, but I didn’t feel much like defrosting any chicken breast. So, I get my rice cooking in the rice cooker and gather all my ingredients together and look in my pantry again for Spam and…we have none.
