Category: Small Savoury Bites

Sometimes a normal sandwich just isn’t going to cut it so mix it up a little by flattening out sand-
wich bread to look like a piece of sushi seaweed. Any filling can be used or try some of the different
ideas listed below. You can secure with a toothpick or if you pack them standing up in small con-
tainer they will stay together perfectly.


  • 2 slices wholemeal bread, crusts removed

Vegetable filling

  • ½ small avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1 iceberg lettuce leaf, finely sliced
  • ½ red capsicum, finely sliced

Tuna and celery filling

  • 180g can tuna in springwater, drained, flaked
  • ½ celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon reduced fat mayonnaise

Chicken and corn filling

  • ½ cup finely chopped cooked chicken
  • 125g can creamed corn
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives


  1. Place bread onto a flat surface. Use a rolling pin to flatten bread slightly. Spread with your choice of filling
  2. Roll up to enclose filling. Cut each piece of rolled bread into 3 rounds so it resembles sushi
  3. Wrap all sandwiches in plastic wrap. Store in the fridge until ready to pack into lunch boxes.
