Easy Sushi Sandwich Roll

If you’ve never made a sushi sandwich before, you are in for a fun treat! Not only do these sushi sandwiches encourage my kids to eat healthy veggies, cheeses and meats, it also makes lunchtime fun by serving something other than a boring sandwich! My kids seem to feel sophisticated eating the kid version of one of their favorite foods!

And really, the options are endless with the way you can mix up the flavors.  You can use cream cheese or mayo, various veggies, cheeses and meats.  My kids prefer when I use turkey or ham but if you want to make these even more like sushi, use a can of tuna inside each roll.
