When I googled "Minnesota Sushi" this is NOT what I was looking for.  Minnesota - what has happened here?  Now, granted I have been away from Minnesota for many years. But I was born and raised in Minneapolis and this was NOT a thing when I was here.  Either that or I owe my family a big 'Thank You' for never introducing me to it.

Since leaving California, the one food that I really miss is sushi.  I'm talking about pulled fresh from the ocean hours before it hit my plate sushi.  So in a moment of weakness, while grasping at straws, I thought just maybe there was a restaurant nearby that somehow had fresh sushi.  But instead I saw this.

Ham, cream cheese and dill pickles.  Each ingredient on their own is ok.  Who put them together and decided to make it look like sushi?  I want to meet them so I can reprimand them!  Why is there even a 'recipe' for this?


1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons Dill Pickle Dip Mix
½ pound thinly sliced deli ham, (about 8 slices)
8 medium-sized dill pickles


In a medium bowl, combine first two ingredients; vigorously mix until well combined.
Spread 2 tablespoons over each slice of ham. Place a pickle on one end of ham and roll up.  Refrigerate 20 minutes or up to sever hours. Slice before serving.
Makes 8 servings.

It really should just say: open packages, slather and roll.  Now walk to trash can, throw away and call Grub Hub to deliver something that's actually edible.
