It’s an  unconventional  sushi roll for me this week. It’s a good excuse to use some Mayonnaise and mustard to drizzle on something delicious easy to make for whenever! Please check out this recipe as I know kids and adults will enjoy it.

Recipe goes as follows

  • 1 cooked Kosher Hot Dog ( boil on high in a pot for 15 minutes)
  • sushi rice ( sticky rice) see my post
  • Sushi rice seasoning  will be posted below.
  • Nori
  • Miso Scallion omelette
  • Toasted sesame seeds both white and black

 Miso Scallion Omelette

  • 3 eggs
  • scallions
  • miso
  • sugar
  • soy sauce
  • salt and white pepper

Cooking Directions

  • In a non-stick pan on medium high heat add some cooking oil about 1 TBSP. Let it get hot. In the meantime taking a small bowl whisk in three eggs with a fork.
  • Wash and cut scallions add them to the egg mixture. Add 1/4 tsp of miso. Then add 1 tsp of sugar and soy sauce. Two pinches of salt and white pepper. Whisk again.
  • Add the egg mixture to the hot non-stick pan. Let it form into an omelette shape before rolling into an egg roll and plating it. Let the omelette cool down to handle for the sushi rolls.

  • Using a bamboo met place nori lay onto the matt. Using your hand grab a small hand ful of sticky rice and gently spread the rice from center out. Evenly as possible.
  • Turn the nori over. Slice the cooked kosher hot dog in half lengthwise. Lay down a slice of hotdog and then a strip of the omelette. Gently pick up the nori and roll away from you tightly. Then use the bamboo matt to tighten it. It helps to secure the roll and makes it stay together.
  • Sprinkle the toasted seame seeds all over and cut into pieces. Lay it down in however you like to arrange on a plate. Add  some mayo mustard on top it’s delicious!

Mayo Mustard Drizzle sauce

  • Mayo mustard is easy to make. Just take 2 oz  Mayonnaise and  1tsp  to 2 tsp yellow mustard and mix together in a bowl. Taste it until you like it.
  • You can use a piping bag to drizzle the sauce right on top. It adds another amazing flavor to the hot dog sushi roll and who doesn’t want a little mustard on a hot dog?
