Super Bowl Rock N’ Roll


This roll is a wonderful snack roll, perfect for game day! Another of our wonderful readers, Ralph Whitbeck, came up with the idea for this roll (Thanks, Ralph! 😀 )

We had both spicy and BBQ Buffalo wings when we made this roll. We got them from Domino’s Pizza, but you can get your favorite wings or even make your own! (There’s a good recipe on Yahoo! Food if you want to try them!) I was planning on making them, but it turns out that someone is already bringing wings to the Super Bowl party that Son and I are going to tomorrow, so instead I made another batch of brownies for the party and bought wings for the sushi instead.

We thought the BBQ Buffalo wings tasted the best, although if you like the spicy-sour taste then you might prefer the spicy wings. We also tried both ranch and blue cheese dressing in the sushi, and found that we didn’t really prefer one over the other. Also, we sprinkled a little seasoned salt on the sushi and liked the extra kick it gave.

Also, you might want to try making some Inari Zushi (a.k.a. footballs! 🙂 ) They taste really good with the Buffalo wings… a nice mix of sweet and savory flavor.

NOTE: For anyone outside the United States who isn’t familiar with the Super Bowl, it is one of the biggest eating days that we have! This is the day where the two top football teams (American football, not soccer or futbol!) play for the Vince Lombardi Trophy. This year is Super Bowl XLI – the 41st annual game! For more information about the Super Bowl, you can go to this article on Wikipedia.

Makes 6 rolls, or 36-48 slices.

  • 6 sheets nori
  • 3 cups sumeshi
  • 12 buffalo chicken wings
  • 6 celery ribs
  • blue cheese or ranch dressing, whichever you prefer
Cooking Directions
  1. Cook sushi rice.
  2. Remove the chicken from the bones. Discard the chicken bones.
  3. Roll the sushi. For your fillings, use the chicken, celery and your preferred dressing.
  4. Serve with beer and a football game. Enjoy!

    You know the thought about how sushi tastes better the closer you get to the ocean? The same is probably true for a Chicken Wing Roll…the closer you are to Buffalo, NY the better it tastes 😉

    Mmm, that looks so delicious! I actually wound up deep frying 15 lbs. of wings (and have another 5 yet to be fried… my arteries beg me to stop!) yesterday and just “winging” the recipes… hahaha. Mmmm, rice with chicken wing meat…. maybe I will do that…. yummy!!!

  6. Yvo -

    Allison, please do. I still have wings left to eat (let’s say 2-3 lbs?) and we are bored senseless. I would love to share my leftovers as long as you don’t mind they’re leftover!

    Robb – It was actually Ralph’s idea, but you’re welcome anyways! 😀

    Yvo – Hehe yum! If I lived in NY, I would be glad to! Unfortunately California is a little too far away… 🙁
