    These sushi poppers are tasty and do not require an expert to prepare. Young children would find these fun to make.

      These were very good, however I think I prefer traditional sushi. I missed the seaweed, and found rolling the traditional sushi easier than making these poppers. The flavor was very good though, and it was a nice change.

      I can't tell you how happy I was to find this recipe! I was even happier after I made & sampled them. I kept it really simple the first time, using only cucumber & cream cheese as my filling. I just used rice and vinegar for the rice portion (no sesame seeds to be found, but I really wanted to try these). I first formed them exactly as directed, but they didn't look very pretty & they kind of fell apart. Sooo, I tried using my small Pampered Chef scooper (the one I use for cookie dough). I scooped up some rice and then pressed it into the scoop firmly to pack it tight. Next, I put my finger into the center to make a hole for the filling. I cut all of the cucumbers into small pieces before I started and topped with a small portion of cream cheese so they were ready to go when needed. Then I put the cucumber in & filled in the top with a little more rice mixture & popped them out onto a plate. Really simple, quick & absolutely delicious. I can't wait to try them again with some different fillings & sesame seeds. A wonderful answer to my sushi cravings at a fraction of the cost of going to a restaurant or buying them in the grocery store! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!!!
