PHILADELPHIA ROLL RECIPE AND A SUSHI SHORTCUT
The Philadelphia Roll is one of our favorites! Also called Philly Rolls and Japanese Bagel Rolls, these tasty homemade sushi rolls are super simple and only require a few ingredients to make!
I may or may not have eaten these Philadelphia Rolls for breakfast yesterday morning.
Not even the “Oh there’s leftover sushi in the fridge, I suppose I’ll eat it!” kind of breakfast either.
Oh no. I flat out made this, from scratch, while sipping my morning coffee.
What? I was out of bagels!
I regret nothing! I could eat sushi every day and be oh so happy about it. I even have a homemade sushi tutorial here on the blog with full step-by-step instructions and photos.
We make it a LOT and it’s become a fun date night activity for my husband and I. Even my kiddo likes to help!
SHORTCUT SUSHI RICE
You can make your sushi rice the standard way, which takes about 20 minutes on the stove or in a rice cooker, or try my shortcut method! Our grocery store has these little Nishiki microwavable steamed sushi rice packages that are perfect amount for two sushi rolls!
I love this option when I want sushi for lunch but don’t want to deal with takeout prices or hassle. It’s super easy!
HOW DO YOU MAKE A PHILLY ROLL?
To make these tasty homemade rolls, you’ll only need a few ingredients: sushi rice, seasoned rice vinegar, nori seaweed sheets, smoked salmon, and cream cheese.
Tasty extras include sesame seeds, sliced cucumber, sliced chives or scallions, and of course some Sriracha and soy sauce for dipping.
