Peanut Butter and Jelly Sushi – Lunchbox Inspiration

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on September 10, 2011

So this is one of those….DUH…”why hadn’t I thought of that” moments for me. We’ve done all kinds of things with PBJ…but never “sushi.” Even though my kids have no idea what sushi is…they’ll definitely get a kick out of these!

Details and instructions from Bon Appetit on Yahoo.

We call them jelly rolls, my oldest just doesn’t like peanut butter, and my youngest goes back and forth, sometimes she asked for a PB&J roll.I bet she would get a kick out of it if I packaged them up like sushi and gave her chopsticks.

I have tried these b efore. They always end up squished. I must watch the video to see if helps.

OMG! What a great idea. I’ll be serving the to my husband who is a huge sushi fan. Thanks for sharing.

someone on the site suggested to roll them tight, wrap in plastic wrap and put in fridge for a few before cutting, to make them not so squishy.

Trendy name or not, super cute & my 11 year old immediately went off & made these :P they turned out super cute. In order to make them not squish down, the second set I helped her and used a serrated bread knife to cut them.

Larger lakes, rivers and ocean waters create a suitable habitat for varieties such as the bay,.
Your sushi rice needs to be nice and sticky to get perfect sushi, so just cooking a pot of rice
isn’t going to cut it. The best rice to use for sushi is a short-grained sticky rice.
