Piggy Livermush Musubi

This winning liver mush recipe from the 2022 annual Liver Mush Festival in Shelby, is a twist on Spam Musubi, a traditional Hawaiian snack. Build your Musubi by layering Homemade Buttered Biscuits, Strawberry Lemon Jam, Cheesy Sheet Pan Eggs, and Mack’s Livermush. Final assembly includes wrapping it all up with nori seaweed.

Homemade Buttered Biscuits


  • 2½ cups flour

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 2 teaspoons sugar

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup unsalted butter

  • 1 cup milk


  1. Freeze ½ cup of butter for minimum of 30 minutes.

  2. Heat oven to 425 degrees.

  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  4. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt—whisk until combined.

  5. Grate butter and add to the bowl; mix together. Add milk to the bowl and use a fork until combined. If necessary, add more milk if too dry.

  6. Put dough onto a floured surface. Pat into a rectangular shape, about 1½ inches thick, and then fold the dough and pat until about that thick again. Repeat 5 times.

  7. Use a biscuit cutter or a knife and cut out your desired biscuit shapes.

  8. Put biscuits on a baking sheet. Brush top of biscuits with milk.

  9. Bake around 14 minutes, or until golden brown.

  2. Whisk eggs, milk, and seasonings and pour into sheet pan.

  3. Sprinkle cheese and chives onto egg mixture.

  4. Bake around 19 minutes, or until firm

  5. Cool and cut to desired shape.

Mack’s Livermush


  • 1 package (2-pound) Mack's Livermush

  • 2 teaspoons of oil (optional)


  1. Cut livermush to desired thickness, about ½ inch.

  2. Put 2 teaspoons of oil in a medium sized pan.

  3. Lay slices of Mack's livermush flat and not overlapping.

  4. Brown 4 minutes per side, or until desired crispiness.

Final Assembly

After you make all recipes above, you will need one large nori sheet (you can purchase packs of 10 which are 8–9 inches long, labeled as sushi nori) to wrap around your creations. Cut one sheet into several 2–3 inch strips and use one per sandwich. To wrap, moisten one end of the nori strip with a bit of water and encircle the sandwich, attaching end to end.
