Nori Wrap and Roll Platter

My favourite meals are ones that are interactive and social, usually involving our hands and lots of dishes or toppings to choose from, like my mini burger platter. The kids love eating this way, and it's just how I grew up with our lettuce wraps and rice paper roll dinners, we all learnt to wrap and roll as we ate and socialised. I find my kids end up eating a lot more veggies as they have so much fun wrapping their own nori rolls. It also doesn't leave you feeling overly stuffed even though you can keep nibbling on it for a couple of hours between chatting and drinking so it's great entertainer or party dish.

You can choose to have as many or as little toppings as you like to include in the platter depending on how many people you have or to suit everyone's taste. Everything can also be prepped the day before (except the bacon would be nicer on the day), it's lovely with just veggies as well so you can cater for any vegetarian or vegan friends too. The key is to cut everything into small strips and cut the nori sheet into 6 rectangles. Keeping it small makes it easier for smaller hands to wrap, and you can choose 3-5 fillings per roll and change up your fillings with each roll.
