Sushi Pinwheels


The fact that these sandwich rolls look like sushi makes them fun for kids to eat, especially with chopsticks. There are two variations here, but feel free to substitute the meats and cheeses you have on hand.

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2-inch-thick slices whole-grain bread, crusts removed (each slice of bread should be about 3 inches wide and 5 inches long)
  • 2 tablespoons mascarpone cheese (at room temperature)
  • 3 thinly sliced pieces prosciutto
  • 1 4-ounce ball fresh mozzarella cheese, drained, patted dry with paper towels, and cut into 6 sticks, each about 1 1/2 inches long and 1/2 inch thick
  • 6 baby pickles (ends trimmed)
  • 1 3-inch piece of carrot, peeled and cut into 1/4- inch-thick sticks
  • 3 1/2-inch-thick slices country white bread, crusts removed (each slice of bread should be about 3 inches wide and 5 inches long)
  • 2 tablespoons mascarpone cheese (at room temperature)
  • 3 deli-style slices roast turkey
  • 1 2-ounce piece white cheddar cheese cut into sticks, each about 1 1/2 inches long and 1/2 inch thick
  • 3 cooked green beans (ends trimmed)
  • 1 3-inch piece of carrot, peeled and cut into 1/4- inch-thick sticks

Instructions

  1. For the prosciutto and mozzarella sushi: Place the bread slices on a work surface. Using a rolling pin, lightly roll the bread until 1/4 inch thick. Spread one side of each slice of bread with 1 teaspoon of mascarpone cheese. Place 1 slice of prosciutto on each slice of bread. Using kitchen shears, trim the prosciutto to fit the bread. Spread each slice of prosciutto with 1 teaspoon mascarpone cheese. Place 2 cheese sticks, end to end, along the narrow edge of the bread. Place 2 pickles, end to end, in front of the cheese. Place a carrot stick between the pickle and the cheese. Starting at the narrow end, roll up the bread like a jelly roll and press lightly to stick. Using a sharp knife, cut each roll into 3 pieces.
  2. For the turkey and cheddar sushi: Place the bread slices on a work surface. Using a rolling pin, roll the bread until 1/4 inch thick. Spread one side of each slice of bread with 1 teaspoon of mascarpone cheese. Place 1 slice of turkey on each slice of bread. Using kitchen shears, trim the turkey to fit the bread. Spread each slice of turkey with 1 teaspoon mascarpone cheese. Place 2 cheese sticks, end to end, along the narrow edge of the bread. Place a string bean on top of the cheese. Place a carrot stick alongside the string bean. Starting at the narrow end, roll up the bread like a jelly roll and press lightly to stick. Using a sharp knife, cut each roll into 3 pieces.

    Any kind of thinly sliced ham or even salami would work for this recipe. Dell Sliced Chicken would also work.
