Hideous cookbook series, part 3

Last summer, as a gift, I received a copy of Hawai’i Cooks with Spam, by Muriel Miura, subtitled Local Recipes Featuring Our Favorite Canned Meat. I really should be able to stop there. But I won’t.

Page 50 boasts this delightful recipe:

SPAM Chien Doi/SPAM-Filled Doughnuts

1 1/2 cups Chinese brown sugar

1 1/4 cups hot water

3 3/4 cups no mei fun (mochi flour)

1 teaspoon sherry

1/2 cup sesame seeds

1 quart canola oil for frying


1 can SPAM, finely chopped

2 stalks green onion, minced

1 teaspoon oyster sauce

Dissolve brown sugar in hot water; cool. Stire enough liquid into mochi flour to make a stiff dough (do not knead). Add sherry and stir to combine. Shape into a roll, 1 1/2 inches in diameter; cut into 1/2-inch slices; flatten.

Combine filling ingredients; mix well. Place about 1 tablespoon in center of dough circle. Pinch edges together to seal; roll into a ball. Roll in sesame seeds. Deep-fry in oil heated to 375 degrees F until golden brown. Press balls against side of pan whille frying to calls with expand. Drain on absorbent paper.

Makes about 12 to 16.

Now, is there really any comment necessary here? SPAM donuts? Come on, people.
