After we posted our Bottomless Lakes trip video, someone commented they would like to see more “lifestyle” content focusing on how we use the inside of our Little Guy Max. Great idea!
In addition to the recipe below, Russ and I made this video as a “how to” make SPAM musubis from in the kitchen of the Little Guy Max. That’s right, I said SPAM
Russ grew up in Hawaii and I believe our marriage has lasted over 26 years at least in part, because I learned how to make musubis! Definitely something out of my comfort zone, this girl from Connecticut almost lost him the first time he saw me put butter and salt on rice instead of soy sauce.
This recipe is one I have put together from my memories watching Russ’s Auntie make them when we lived on Oahu. I don’t know if I got it exactly like hers, but I did get the seal of approval from her when she came to our house for a visit years ago – whew!!
Thank you Auntie Margaret! (3rd from left, back row). This photo was taken on our family trip back to Hawaii-December 2016.
During our time living in Wisconsin, musubis also became a favorite for our son, Brett and his friends as they were growing up. They would all have the same initial hesitant reaction when we would first offer it to them, but after they had one, they were hooked.
Brett recently graduated from Beloit College (proud Mom moment!!) and has moved to Seattle. Brett, this video/post is for you!
The only real variation I make when making these in our RV versus a traditional kitchen is not using a rice cooker (which can be bulky and take up a lot of space) and instead, cooking the rice on the stovetop instead.
YIELD: 6 musubis (enough for 2-3 people)
EQUIPMENT: (list & links to actual products used)
One of the great benefits of having an RV is the ability to take your “home” wherever you go and especially for us, the ability to make our favorite comfort foods whenever we want. Cooking in an RV is not much different than in a traditional kitchen. I have found the real secret is to clean up as you go and you’ll find that even in the smallest spaces, you will have more than enough room to do everything you need to do.
