Sometimes, we need to lighten up the day with a spoonful of whimsy. And what better way to do this than in the kitchen as you transform a basic lunch platter into a personified character?
With your favorite sandwich as the base, cucumber slices with raisin pupils awaken Willie. Underneath his almond nose is his red pepper smile, making this carrot top character the friendliest sandwich of the bunch.
- Gather your ingredients.
To make this fun lunch character, you’ll need two slices of bread, your favorite sandwich filling, a cucumber, red pepper, an almond, two raisins, and thin strips of carrot.
- Make a sandwich head.
Make your favorite sandwich, and cut it into a circle using a cookie cutter or knife. Remove the pieces cut away, leaving the center.
- Construct the eyes.
Place two slices of cucumber on the sandwich toward the top edge.
Add raisins on top of the cucumbers to form pupils.
- Give him a nose.
Place the almond under the eyes in the center of the sandwich.
- Create the smile.
Cut a slice of pepper, and add it under the nose.
- Add hair.
Peel thin strips of carrot, and place them on the plate so they touch the top edge of the sandwich.
That’s all there is to it!
