This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Schwebel’s breads. The opinions and text are all mine.
Are you looking for a fun and simple recipe to make for your kids’ lunches? Look no further. Momma Chef’s SB&J Sushi Rolls have become such a favorite at my son’s school that one of the teachers sought me out at our last parent/teacher conference to thank me for the idea. She wanted to let me know that she made them for her daughter’s birthday party, and they were a huge hit. I love it!
And what’s not to love about SB&J Sushi Rolls?
To begin with, they are pretty darn cute. Who can resist a sweet little lunch roll-up? How fun it will be for your child to open her lunch bag and find “sushi rolls” instead of the expected, traditional sandwich.
Plus, sushi is super mainstream to the hip elementary school crowd. I’ve seen sushi t-shirts, stuffed animals, and memes aplenty. My friend’s five-year old daughter’s favorite toy is her Melissa and Doug sushi slicing wooden play set. Super adorable! One of the Littlest Pet Shop cats comes with teeny-tiny plastic sushi. Seriously. SB&J Sushi Rolls are going to rock your kids’ cafeteria tablemates.
Next, they are SO EASY to prepare. Are they as easy as a sandwich? Of course not – but just about. This recipe can be easily completed under five minutes – including making an extra serving for yourself to nosh on after the kids head to school.
Finally, they are made with SunButter instead of peanut butter. If you aren’t familiar with SunButter, let me fill you in on this great product. It is made from sunflower seeds, and it is absolutely nut-free. While I am fortunate that my own kids do not have nut allergies, many of their friends at school do. Out of respect for those families, I like to promote yummy lunch recipes that respect their dietary restrictions. And SB&J Sushi Rolls perfectly fits the bill.
In order to make the perfect SB&J Sushi roll, you need to find a quality bread. Otherwise, you’re going to have a sushi disaster on your hands. You can’t go wrong with Schwebel’s Freshly Baked Breads. I’m someone who values family above all, and I love that Schwebel’s is an independent and family-owned wholesale bakery. Their products consistently reflect the excellent standards that I want to provide for my own family. And with my Momma Chef recipe promise – no more than six ingredients! I want to make certain that each and every ingredient is of the highest quality. With Schwebel’s wide variety of freshly-baked goods, I can find something delicious to enhance my culinary creations. Your best choice here is Schwebel’s Sweet Harvest Wheat Bread. With its special blend of the finest whole grains and a touch of golden honey, its flavor perfectly complements the SunButter and jelly. Its texture makes it pliable enough that even a novice sushi chef can create perfect rolls. At the same time, Schwebel’s Sweet Harvest Wheat Bread is hearty enough that the sushi rolls will stay intact from your kitchen counter to the lunch box to the fifth-grade cafeteria table.
For some added pizzazz, pick up some extra sets of disposable chopsticks from your favorite Asian restaurant. Include a pair for your kids to have authentic tableware as they enjoy this creative lunchtime offering.
