Spam Kimbap

On lazy weekends, once in a blue moon I’m crazy enough to make kimbap.  It’s literally an all day event!

Once I get started, I sit there and make kimbap all morning and sometimes all afternoon!

And about halfway through the rice, I ended up running out of ingredients for gogi kimbap. So I dug through my pantry and found this can of SPAM.

Cut and fry the spam...

Get some good old American cheese...

I already had eggs from the gogi kimbap.

Put your rice about 3/4 of the way on the sheet.  I usually just season my rice with splashes of sesame oil and sesame seeds.  You can add sushi vinegar if you’re going to eat it *RIGHT AWAY* but I find that adding vinegar makes the kimbap smelling stale after a few hours.  My husband likes to eat it all day long, so I usually skip the vinegar.

Add the three ingredients.

Roll up tightly.

Cut and serve! Honestly, although I love spam the gogi kimbaps blew the spam kimbap outta the water. =P Munchkin refused to eat the spam kimbap and made sure to ask for "gogi kimbap only please." =P At least the MR had something to snack on at midnight! hehe.

Four hours of hard work later! The MR had already taken a container with him in the morning. =P Can you believe almost all that kimbap is GONE now? I live with two men that truly know how to eat! Happy Monday, folks!!!

  9. kimbap seems to have a short life span. if I fridge it overnight to eat the next day, the rice is too hard. Is there a remedy for this?

  10. if you don't finish the kimbap in 1 day & put it in the fridge, how do you avoid the hard rice?
