Let me walk you through how I made the sushi rolls:
- Roll a rolling pin over pieces of sandwich bread until it is the thickness you desire.
- Spread or place the foods you want on top of the bread. We used apple jelly and honey baked ham.
- Roll each slice of bread up to create a tube.
- Slice the sandwich sushi rolls as thick or thin as you like.
I made apple and Colby Jack cheese apple shaped cutouts to place on top of the sandwich sushi rolls to dress them up a little bit. The outlines of the cutouts were placed in the upper right hand section of the lunch box. I sprinkled the apples with a tiny bit of lemon juice to keep them from going brown.
Since the apple of my eye loves applesauce with a dash of cinnamon, I put that in the lunch too. JDaniel might not understand the phrase apple of my eye, but he really enjoyed having an apple themed sandwich sushi lunch in his kids lunch.
Oh! Another reason I like the sushi sandwiches in a kids lunch is that rather than having a whole sandwich or a half or even quarters is that this lunch has bite size pieces that kids can pop in their mouths. I think it might encourage kids to try new foods or eat more of a sandwich than being presented with big pieces of sandwich.
