BLT Maki

Well, it had to happen eventually. School’s back in session! :( Break was way too short, but on the bright side, I did get a lot of sushi made! There are definitely some interesting and odd sushi on the way!

This roll is my sushi version of the classic BLT sandwich. I used to love BLT sandwiches, except that I don’t like tomato – so mine always ended up being BL_ sandwiches. :P This roll turned out tasting pretty darn good! I think it’s even better tasting than the sandwich… but then of course, I’m also a bit biased. ;)

By the way, if you haven’t voted yet, head on over to the Well Fed Network [1] and vote for SushiDay! Thanks to everyone who has already voted – I really appreciate it! :D

Makes 6 rolls, or 36-48 slices.

  • 6 sheets nori [4]
  • 3 cups sumeshi [5]
  • 12 strips uncooked bacon
  • 1 head lettuce
  • 1 medium tomato
Cooking Directions
  1. Cook sushi rice. [5]
  2. Slice the uncooked bacon in half, so the strips are half as long as they originally were. This makes the bacon easier to cook, but if you prefer to cook whole slices of bacon, that’s fine too.
  3. Fry the bacon. You don’t need to use any oil or butter or anything, because the fat in the bacon is more than enough to fry the bacon. I prefer to fry my bacon until it’s really crispy, but that of course, is completely up to you! :)
  4. Place the cooked bacon on some paper towels to soak up the remaining grease.
  5. Wash the lettuce.
  6. Separate 6 or so leaves from the head of lettuce.
  7. Cut the tomato into thin strips
  8. Roll the sushi [6]. For your fillings, place a lettuce leaf on the sumeshi-covered nori, then place the tomato strips and about 4 pieces of bacon on top of the lettuce – then roll the sushi as you normally would.
  9. Serve with mayonnaise. Enjoy!
