The word sushi literally means rice, but so what?
What these waffle breakfast rolls lack in culinary accuracy, they totally make up in pure fun!
When I set out to make some sort of sushi-shaped thing with waffles, I expected it to be this daunting task that took me hours in the kitchen and would have to be propped up or faked to look good. It turned out totally opposite! These Waffle Breakfast Sushi Rolls
were shockingly easy to make, and very sturdy – in fact, they were much less fragile than some sushi rolls I’ve made in the past.
The key to the recipe was using pizzelles (instead of full-blown waffles) as the shell to hold everything together. Pizzelles are sturdy, easy to make, and even firm up after a few minutes to really keep everything together nicely.
Just a few ingredients and you have your pizzelle batter in no time.
Prep your ingredients real quick (which really means to simply slice up some fruit and get the cream cheese out of the fridge).
Overload your pizzelle maker so it comes out as one whole rectangle.
Top with the cream cheese, then the fruit. I first made one with strawberry and banana...
Followed by one with pineapple. Really though, just like sushi, the possibilities are endless.
Then just chop it into bite-sized pieces.
Make sure you line them up to make it look like sushi.
