Minnesota Sushi

November 15, 2013

We’ve been busy with social functions here in Arizona! Normally, I’m an introvert. I enjoy quiet times by myself or just chilling with Micah. But I’ve been enjoying hanging out with people from Valley Christian Church and getting to know this new family we have. Just before Halloween, we went to a fun night of Bible dress up and games. It was great! Pretty much everything imaginable is in the Bible, so the costumes were basically unlimited. And the snack we brought: Minnesota Sushi. We had to introduce the Arizonians to it!

MN Sushi

It’s actually really easy, and only three ingredients!

Thin-sliced meat

Cream cheese (whipped is easiest!)

Pickles (I like Dill best, Peter thinks sweet is good too)

MN sushi ingredients

#1 Spread the cream cheese on each piece of meat.

Tips: this is easiest if you buy whipped cream cheese or let the cream cheese sit out a bit so it isn’t so hard. Even then, it takes a while to get used to the light but firm touch it takes to spread the cheese without ripping the meat.

#2 Put a pickle in the middle. End to end.

#3 Roll the meat around the pickle.

#4 Cut into whatever size you like!

I tend to cut each roll into 3 bite size pieces for maximum enjoyment.

    OMG, I had this once many years ago at a tupperware party and forgot all about them. It was so yummy! I will have to make these for our next get together.

  7. Laurali Manieri says:

    Wow, we use to eat these as kids, (and I’m from Louisiana). I had forgotten all about what my mother called “pickle rolls”, Can’t wait to make some for snacking!

  8. Robin Wilson says:

    LOL! I love the name of this recipe! I love how easy it is and I bet kids love it! That’s a lot of pickle! Bet you could do it with those little ones too!

  9. Laura J says:

    Oh I love these! I have not made them in a long time…will have to make this week! Our favorite!

  10. Nicole Dz says:

    I love this! No fishy stuff! I think I agree with the sweet pickles! This makes a great appetizer!

  11. I have never tried anything like this before, but I craved stuff like this when I was pregnant. I am a dill girl all the way

  12. James Robert says:

    My daughter just had this at a friends home and is asking me to get the ingredients so they can have it here. She loved it!

    • That’s awesome! We love making it for potlucks, it’s basic and stores well in the fridge and is always all gone!

  13. This sounds like a tasty snack. I use to eat sweet pickles with cheese, so I just need to add meat.

  14. Brenda Haines says:

    Love the name! Lol I make something similar, maybe I’ll call mine Oregon sushi . 🙂 I take ham cream cheese and roll chunks of pineapple up in them.
