My lunch is grinning at me. (help?)
I’m gonna go ahead and file that under the ‘Things I Never Thought I’d Say’ tab. And in this case it’s a good thing, because it means I’ve succeeded in making adorable, edible little monsters for my little monsters.
These are ready in mere minutes, making them a perfect addition to any little lunch box and easy enough to whip a batch large enough for the food table at just about any Halloween Monster
2 slices of your favorite sandwich bread, we used honey wheat
1 slice sharp cheddar cheese
2-3 slices of lunch meat, ham, turkey, or chicken
2 pimento-stuffed green olives
mayonaiise or mustard (optional)
large round cookie cutter, or biscuit cutter
- Use a large cookie or biscuit cutter, press into the slices of bread, pulling away crust and excess to cut into circles. Use a paring knife to cut jagged little ‘teeth’ into one side of the slice of cheese. Stack the slices of lunchmeat on the bottom piece of bread & put the slice of cheese on top with the jagged edge facing ‘out’ and slightly hanging over the edge. Spread a bit of mayo and/or mustard onto the inside of the other cut piece of bread and then top the sandwich. Break a toothpick in half & insert one half into a pimento stuffed olive & the other into the top of the sandwich. Repeat with the other one forming your monster eyes. Repeat as many times as needed for your desired number of sandwiches.
These are fun to make – I made a version of this last year for Halloween. Don’t forget to link to Fiesta Friday 🙂
How cute are these sandwiches? ❤ Such a creative and fun idea. 🙂 Happy FF!
I laughed out loud when I saw these! They’re so whimsical but without being too gruesome or scary. Happy Halloween!
Exactly! Festive can be fun, and doesn’t always have to be gruesome (although my teenagers might beg to differ).
These are too cute! Love them 🙂
Seriously, these are too cute!
I’m sure your boys enjoyed them Very cute Meaghan. Hope you are enjoying co-hosting the party
Thanks, Quinn 🙂
So cute!And fun to make, I guess!
Thank you. And we had a blast making them, especially for the littler ones when they can all of sudden ‘see’ their food come to life.
