How to make sushi sandwiches?

Making sushi sandwich rolls couldn’t be simpler. Start with a slice of bread and take off the crusts. Roll each slice out with a rolling pin until it’s flattened.

Add your chosen toppings on top, in a thin layer. Starting from the bottom, roll it up tightly. Seal the edges by dabbing with water and slice the roll crosswise into bitesize pieces. And that’s it, you’ve made your first sushi sandwich.

How to make the sandwich rolls (all fillings)

Ham and cheese filling

  2. Take your second rolled bread slice, spread with cream cheese and add a slice of cheese on top.
  3. Roll up your bread slice tightly (see above). If you need to you may need to trim off excess ham or cheese from the ends. Add your chosen toppings and slice into thick pieces.

Creamy avocado filling

  1. Take ½ a ripe avocado. Mash it together with 1 tablespoon cream cheese until a creamy avocado paste.
  2. Spread it over a compacted slice of bread and add a squeeze of lime juice.
  3. Add some very thinly sliced tomato and cucumber pieces too. Just make sure that they’re laid down in one layer so that the sandwich is not too full.
  4. Starting from the bottom of the bread, roll it up tightly and cut into slices, as above.

  2. Place a slice of smoked salmon on top.
