This is made with two whole pieces of white-wheat bread, the pb&j, strawberry and Annie's organic cheddar bunnies.
Here's how I make my sandwich sushi rolls. Stay tuned, there's a little trick I do to make my rolls. :)
Step 1: gather your ingredients and supplies.
You will need:
-contents for your sandwich rolls (here I'm using sunflower butter and preserves, (though at the last minute my husband found the peanut butter I overlooked in the pantry))
-rolling pin or extra cutting board
Step 2: take two slices of bread and cut off the crusts.
Step 3: separate your pieces and prepare to smoosh.
Step 4: smoosh gently. Slightly smoosh. This is not the grand squishing moment.
I like to lay a cutting board over the top and press. That usually works really well for me.
See? The bread is smooshed, but not totally flattened. This is important for the secret step coming up next.
(this is the super secret tip part....)
Step 5: overlap the edges of the bread, like so -
Haha, can you see my palm print and finger indentations in the bread? I had to fiddle so much with my camera between steps that the bread started puffing back up. I had to beat it back down into submission.
Step 6: Roll that sucker flat. Or smoosh like heck. Flatten it anyway you want.
ta-dah!! One long piece of bread now!
Step 7: Trim the edges so they are all nice and straight.
Step 8: Add your filling.
Whatever you use, whether pb&j or ham & cheese, leave a little space at the end because the contents tend to squish toward the end as you roll. Now, I could have spread mine a little more than I did here, like maybe half-way to the end more. The thicker your filling is the more it tends to creep to the end.
Step 9: Roll 'em on up. Then, slice with a sharp knife.
Step 10: Admire your cute little sandwich sushi rolls. :)
And finally, pack 'em on in. These went in the tiny Sistema box. This is the same little box I used in the itty bitty snack boxes post
There's no other way a 2-slice-of-bread-sandwich would have fit in this tiny little box!
So there ya go. I spilled my super secret sandwich sushi trick. Enjoy! :)
