I made some cowboy sushi because I wanted to make something nice for my wife. I told her it was to help her with her Thanksgiving meal at her school, but really I just wanted her to know I was thinking about her.
She always says I am too inventive in the kitchen, but I felt that Cowboy Sushi (while novel) was something she would like.
What is Cowboy Sushi
This recipe for cowboy sushi is really nothing but cream cheese and ham wrapped around s pickle. I understand that people may think that combination sounds weird. However, let me tell you cowboy sushi actually tastes very good. For some reason this just works. In that manner, this “sushi” recipe is a lot like my green onion wraps
I got this idea from pinterest, but the original site is http://goodwifeinthekitchen.blogspot.com/2008/09/cowboy-sushi.html.
This is a neat site, and it has some interesting posts on organization that you may find useful.
I found I needed to modify the technique to work, but I really enjoyed the finished product.
Recipe for Cowboy Sushi
- large whole kosher dill pickles
- Sliced Ham
- Softened cream cheese
- Spread a thin layer of cream cheese over a ham slice (you will need 4 or five slices for each pickle)
- Roll the ham around the pickle
- Place the center of the second slice of ham where the ends of the first slice met (this overlaps the ends)
- Repeat 2 or three more times to build a good ham wrap around the pickle
- Refrigerate to firm the cheese and the ham
- Slice into thick slices (I like cutting off the ends first)
This is a very simple snack, and like sushi is relatively light and is great to eat on hot days when you don’t feel like making a big production of cooking.
