BT reader K Linn wrote in to share this creation that she developed for bacon sushi.  When we made bacon sushi, we did it as a salmon dish. The great thing about sushi, though, is that there are just so many combo possibilities.

Here’s what K had to say about her dish:

“So, we’ve all seen Spam Musubi, right? Why not try it with bacon? I made these rolls this morning at 3 am. The rice is only flavored with a little sesame oil. I’m still contemplating dipping sauces; mayo is calling out to me for some reason.”

Sushi is a wonderful dish – healthy and relatively inexpensive, depending on how you make it. K’s dish looks to be very well constructed, and the bacon looks perfect. I would order that in a restaurant for sure.

    Spam Masubi is heavenly.

    And K is right … mayo might sound odd, but it would probably work with this. Maybe mayo with just a little miso mixed in.

    I’m going to have to make this. Since my wife eats bacon, but won’t tough raw fish, this is something the whole family can enjoy.

    Bacon musabi is actually carried in some 7-11’s in Hawaii. Despite my unconditional love for bacon, the original ol’ spam musabi is a little bit better in my opinion. Maybe with the correct dipping sauce (I like the miso mayo idea) this could be glorious.

    Woo! It’s great to see that up!

    I ended up trying soy sauce because I didn’t have any mayo on hand. It wasn’t right for it, too salty, too big a flavor even dipped the tiniest bit. It drowned out the bacon, overpowered it right away. I like the miso idea too, but also think maybe mayo mixed with a little sugar and some chopped green onion might be good too.

    Yeah, the remind me of the spam musubi in Da Islands, which is never a bad thing. I’ve used the bacon-flavored Spam to make musubi, and that’s a chimera of awesome deliciousness. Maybe Bacon Sushi 2.0 could include a layer of scrambled egg, adding a tamago twist and giving breakfast a run for its money!

    This looks super tasty! Not something I would have ever thought of. Although, I don’t think you would need any dipping sauce, I would think the bacon flavor alone would be enough.
