5 Sandwich Sushi Ideas for the Lunchbox

  

This post is a collaboration with Woolworths

My kids can’t get enough of sandwich sushi in their lunchboxes, so I thought I would put together 5 of their favourites to share with you. Sushi sandwiches are a great way to mix up the lunchbox and to convince your children to try some new sandwich fillings. I know my kids get bored eating the same sandwich fillings daily, so each week, I’ll make them some sandwich sushi for something just a little different. 

 

It might look tricky to make, but it’s actually really simple and only takes a few minutes to put together. You do have to cut off the crust, so to prevent wastage, you can pop them in your freezer to make bread crumbs or croutons at a later stage.

My tips for making the perfect sandwich sushi

Select the right bread 

Woolworths new Super Soft bread is perfect for sandwich sushi. It’s super soft as its name suggests but it’s also tasty, high in fibre and a source of vitamins and minerals. ALL the good stuff you would want to be put in your child’s lunchbox. 

 Woolworths Super Soft bread is available in white or wholemeal for $3. 

Roll the pieces of bread out flat and remove the crust

 The key to making the perfect sandwich sushi is to roll the bread totally flat and cut off all the crust. To put in the filling and roll it out into the sushi shape, you need to make sure it’s flat first! A tip for the crust – you can keep them in the freezer and use for any recipe that calls for bread crumbs.  

Use food pick to hold them together 

 To hold together the sandwich sushi, you can use food picks or put them close together in a container to stop them unrolling and the filling coming out.

Make them fresh if you can

 Sandwich sushi can be made the night before, but it is best to make it in the morning before school so they stay super fresh for the whole day.
