Chris Pratt Inspired Cucumber Rolls

If you are like literally everyone on the internet, you’ve probably seen the hilarious series of videos by movie star Chris Pratt, “What’s my snack?”. If you haven’t, go watch..We’ll wait.

The Hubs had been enamored with Chris Pratt of late because #lifegoals. He has been eagerly watching the “What’s my snack?” updates, and saw one that we just had to recreate. During this segment, Chris Pratt’s snack is cucumber egg rolls.

Ever since this episode, The Hubs has been itching to make his own cucumber rolls. Which means he’s been itching for me to make cucumberrolls…even though he claims to be the better cook (It’s okay. We’ll let him think that.).

Here’s how it went down:

The Hubs: I want to take those cucumber rolls for lunch on Friday but I don’t have time to make them *pouts* (He knows I’m a sucker for the pout.)

Me: Aww, that’s okay. I can make them for you.

The Hubs” *perks up* Really?? Can you?

Me: You know, you could have just asked me.

I’m pretty sure he just likes to break out the pout to see if it still works on me (Spoiler alert: It always does.)

So without further ado, here is our my recipe for Chris Pratt’s Cucumber Rolls:

Chris Pratt Inspired Cucumber Rolls

  1. Slice your cucumber lengthwise into long flat pieces using a vegetable peeler or slicer. Set the slices on paper towels to absorb the excess moisture.Chris Pratt Inspired Cucumber Rolls
  2. Make your egg salad base. Chop up your eggs into little bits, or use one of this nifty slicers that we somehow don’t own. Mix in your mayo and dill weed to taste. Go light on the mayo here because the cucumbers have a lot of moisture and you don’t want things to get runny (ew). Also, I find that this Whole 30 mayo is suuuper salty if you use too much, so start light.Chris Pratt Inspired Cucumber Rolls
  3. Let’s get rolling! Lay 1 or 2 slices of cucumber on a flat surface like a cutting board. If you are using 2 slices, make sure they overlap and are similar in length. Spread your egg salad mixture along 2/3rds of the cucumber. Top with your alfalfa sprouts. I’m not a huge fan of alfalfa, so I didn’t use much, but feel free to use more if you’re into that kinda thing. Starting from the egg salad end, roll your cucumber slice up like a little piece of sushi. Secure with a toothpick. Repeat with remaining ingredients.Chris Pratt Inspired Cucumber Rolls
  4. Serve to your very appreciative husband.

These cucumber rolls are best eaten immediately, but can last about a day in the fridge. After that they get a little too watery from the cucumber. The best part it, these cucumber rolls are Whole 30 approved!  They make a great snack or side dish to a Whole 30 meal. I think they’d be super fun to bring to a party if you need a Whole 30 option. Any other Chris Pratt fans out there? Did you have a favorite snack from his series (Don’t say Chris is your favorite snack! I know you’re thinking it. Don’t say it!)?
