Lunchbox Sushi Back to SchoolShared by Dollar Tree’s Value Seekers Club®! Want more ideas like this? Join the Club >

Skip the boring brown bag lunch when the kids head back to school. Instead, send them off with a lunchbox full of sushi… don’t worry, we’re talking about sandwich sushi! It’s easy to make and fun to eat, plus you can use the same fillings you would for a regular sandwich, or get creative and try new things. The possibilities are endless! It’s also a great snack for play dates, parties, or after school.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Bread
  • Fillings (See Sandwich Ideas Below)
  • Plastic Sandwich Container
  • Rolling Pin
  • Butter Knife

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Remove the crust from a slice of bread and flatten it using a rolling pin.
  2. Add your fillings and roll tightly, being careful not to tear the bread.
  3. Slice your sandwich sushi roll into 1″ pieces and line the sandwich container.

Four Fun Sandwich Ideas:

  • For Classic Sandwich Lovers: Use the same fillings you would for sandwiches: lunch meat, cheese, peanut butter, jelly, etc.
  • For Pickle Lovers: Spread a thin layer of mustard on your bread, then layer on a piece of lunch meat and a piece of cheese. Top with pickles, roll, and slice.
  • For Sweet Lovers: Layer the sandwich sushi with peanut butter or chocolate spread. Slice apples or bananas and layer on top, then roll and slice.
  • For Traditional Sushi Lovers: Wrap the flattened bread around cream cheese, sliced cucumbers, and smoked salmon for a more grown-up snack.
