Ingredients

Sandwich Sushi

  • 1 slice King's Hawaiian sandwich bread
  • 1 cup baby spinach - divided
  • 2 slices deli chicken - thinly sliced
  • 1 slice cheddar cheese - thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon bagged shredded carrots

Spinach Ranch Dipping Sauce

  • 1/3 cup ranch salad dressing
  • Remaining spinach

Instructions

Sandwich Sushi

  • Remove the crust from the bread.
  • Use a rolling pin to completely flatten the slice of bread. You will need to roll both sides to get it thin enough.
  • Cover the top of the bread with a single layer of baby spinach. Remove any stems.
  • Reserve the remaining spinach for the dipping sauce (recipe included).
  • Place a slice of chicken on top of the spinach.
  • Add a slice of cheese.
  • Add a thin, single layer of dried cranberries on top.
  • Top with another slice of chicken.
  • Place a thin row of shredded carrots down the center of the chicken.
  • Tightly roll up the sandwich, jelly roll style.
  • Slice off a thin piece from each end.
  • Slice remaining roll into four equal pieces.

Spinach Ranch Dipping Sauce

  • Place the ranch salad dressing and remaining spinach leaves into a food processor.
  • Pulse until spinach and dressing are fully combined.

Notes

  • Use water: If the bread seems like it's a little dry, slightly wet your hands and rub them over both sides of the bread before rolling it out.  Don't use too much water - you don't want soggy bread.
  • Roll both sides of the bread: To get the bread completely flattened, make sure you roll out both sides of the bread. 
  • Thinner is better:  Make sure you get very thinly sliced meat and cheese.  It will be hard to roll if the ingredients are too thick. 
  • Mix up the filling: Feel free to swap the filling ingredients for whatever flavors your family likes. Just remember not to overfill the bread or it will be hard to roll up and keep rolled.
  • Use a good quality bread:  I highly recommend using King's Hawaiian sandwich bread for this recipe.

Helpful Tips for All Recipes
  • When a recipe call for House Seasoning Blend, you can find the recipe on www.itisakeeper.com. Simply search for "House Seasoning Blend" or you can substitute salt and pepper to taste.  
  • I always use unsalted butter in my recipes.
  • I always use a meat thermometor to test for doneness when cooking meat.
  • When a recipe is made in the oven, it should be pre-heated to the temperature in the recipe, unless otherwise noted.
