PB&J ‘Sushi’ Recipe Puts a Fun New Spin on Kids’ Favorite Sandwich

how to make PB&J sushi rollsNow that summer vacation is upon us, my entire family seems to be running a mile a minute in 50 different directions. Meals need to be quick and easy to eat. So when a friend told me she'd made peanut butter and jelly sushi rolls, I was intrigued. They sounded like everything that makes for a good eat for kids. I begged her for the recipe ... and decided we'd give them a go.

She was right. They're easy peasy, lemon squeezy. Even better: they're about half as messy as the usual PB&J!

Oh, and don't worry ... there's no fish in this "sushi."

Instead there are all the standards of a good PB&J: peanut butter, jelly, and bread. The only difference is they're rolled up and cut into small bite-size pieces that a kid (or, heck, an adult) can pop in their mouth.

The big benefit, I noticed, is you don't have sticky jelly leaking out the sides when your kid squeezes that big sandwich too tight. And bite-size pieces are eaten so fast, there are no dropped sandwiches!

Want to try to make your own peanut butter and jelly sushi for lunch or even a kids' party? I tracked the steps when I made them with my daughter.

What is your favorite sandwich to make for kids on the go?
