Hot Dog Sushi


It’s no overstatement to say that I’m a huge EarthBound fan; và in turn, a tín đồ of the entire MOTHER series. Indeed, it was the bizarre foods from these games that originally inspired the blog itself! 

Right now, hundreds of EarthBound fans from across the country are meeting up in a small Tucson khách sạn for the second Camp Fangamer convention; except for me that is :c …. Not one to lớn take an unaccommodating work schedule sitting down, I wanted khổng lồ put out another recipe from MOTHER 3, in honor of this year’s camp theme. 

This one’s for you, guys. I miss you all!


Mother 3 is a game with a lot of chimeras. Most of these mixed up amalgams come in the size of enemies you’ll find along the way; like a snake with a chicken’s head, or a half-kangaroo, half-hammerhead shark monster (cue the “What has science done!?” memes).

Marketed as a ‘sophisticated good’ in New Pork City, the Hot Dog Sushi is merely a type of culinary chimera which I promise won’t inspire nearly as many nightmares as the abominations above.


This recipe is everything I love about writing this blog: weird food, coupled with a vague in-game sprite & description, really gives me the creative freedom to have fun exploring different ideas. The fact that they came out SUPER TASTY only adds lớn the satisfaction, so I certainly hope you can give them a shot sometime. :>

In order to lớn achieve the ‘hot dog bun’ on đứng top of the sushi, I mixed up some brioche dough according khổng lồ this recipe & baked my own small rolls. Although they came out well, I don’t think it’s truly necessary, and including instructions would kết thúc up adding a lot of extra work lớn an otherwise straightforward procedure. To lớn that end, I think small store-bought dinner rolls cut into quarters should be just fine. :>


WALKTHROUGHPlace two slices of ‘hot dog bun’ side by side on đứng top of the sushi rolls, leading some space in between them. Ever so slightly dipping the bottoms of the bread in water can help them stick khổng lồ the rice (thanks, Kobaiyashi!).Place your cocktail frank, & piece of lettuce (or kale, or any non-herb green leaf really) in between the buns.


And that’s all there is to lớn it! Now go ahead and enjoy this New Pork đô thị delicacy!
