  1. Can't wait to try this. I love all your recipes man and you also made me a spam fanatic to

  2. How much did all the ingredients cost together? I want to make this pretty soon and I don't want to overshoot my grocery budget

    1. They sell Spam at the local Dollar Tree (check your dollar stores). Sometimes I can find short grain white rice there too. Trader Joes has nori sheets for $1 as well. Daiso variety stores sell the rice wine vinegar for very cheap, too. This is a VERY budget-friendly recipe!
