Sushi Grilled Cheese

No chopsticks required here, this vegetable sushi roll inspired sandwich brings all the good flavors and textures of sushi into a handheld rice cake grilled cheese sandwich. A unique, very cool and delicious sandwich, I wish I hadn't just made it for myself late one night, I wanted to wake people up and share the experience.

A Vegetarian & Cooking! original.

-1 1/2 cups cooked sushi rice
-1 egg
-salt and pepper
-2 ounces goat cheese
-1/2 sheet nori
-2 tablespoons shredded carrot
-1/2 avocado
-soy sauce

Cook the sushi rice according to the package instructions; I started with about 1/2 cup uncooked rice and ended up with 1 1/2 cups cooked rice. It may vary from preparation to preparation. Break up the egg white and yolk in a bowl, then mix in the rice and a pinch of salt and pepper. Scoop half the eggy rice into a medium heat frying pan with some cooking spray, and form into a 1/2 inch thick patty. Cook until crisp and light brown, then gently flip to cook the other side. Remove the first patty, scoop and form the rest of the rice into a second patty in the pan, cook and flip.

When one side of the second patty is cooked, top the crisp side with goat cheese, thinly sliced nori, shredded carrot, sliced avocado, and the other rice cake. When the bottom rice cake is crispy, the sushi grilled cheese is ready to serve.

Every bite delivers perfect sushi flavor, creaminess from the avocado and goat cheese and crispness from the carrot and toasted rice, even more excellent when dipped in soy sauce.
