On a recent trip to the kitchen supply store I happened upon plastic push-up containers. I know that push-up cupcakes are all the rage now but I was just planning on just going old skool and filling them with frozen treats all summer. That is until I realized I could do so much more…
Hawaii peeps will see the fun in this, I took a spam musubi and put it in push-up form!
A fun, portable summer snack for the kids and the containers are washable and reusable so you know ice cream is still in our future!
Normally when I make spam musubi I cut it into 9 slices but for these I made them slightly thicker, so I got 8 slices out of one can.
Place the cut slices in a pan – drizzle with soy sauce, and sprinkle liberally with sugar. Turn over and do the same to the other side. NOW turn the pan on to medium high heat.
I like to cook it until the sugar gets good and caramelized and you get a nice sticky teriyaki color on the outside. Turn them to make sure the other side cooks the same. Take them out of the pan and set them aside.
A 1-1/2 inch biscuit cutter fits perfectly! Using that – cut out rounds from the spam.
For the layering, assemble your push-pop containers and using a small spoon add a little bit of rice in the bottom, then some furikake seasoning if you like.
Add a round of spam, more rice, more furikake then another round of spam.
Top if off with a little more rice and then you’re done!
Cap it and serve!
