Make your kids lunch super fun with these easy Monster Sandwiches! They’re so simple & the kiddos will love them!
My lunch is smiling at me.
Usually, that may not be a good thing…. but when it comes to these adorable monster sandwiches – it’s a great thing. In just a couple minutes flat, you can turn an everyday basic & boring sandwich into a monsterously exciting meal.
I am completely in love with this concept.
You can make just one for the kids’ lunch – or you can easily make up a huge batch for a party in no time. All you need are the basic ingredients for a sandwich – plus a toothpick & a couple of olives.
Using a glass & knife (or a biscuit cutter or similar), cut out 2 rounds from 2 slices of bread.
Since every monster needs gnarly teeth, make some jagged ones using a knife and a piece of cheese.
Layer your meat first, & then your cheese – leaving the ‘teeth’ hanging a little over the edge of the bread. Top with the other round piece of bread.
If you’re using condiments & your sandwich will not be eaten immediately, it’s best to spread the condiments between the meat & cheese to keep the bread rom getting soggy. The meat & cheese will act as a barrier, keeping your bread sog-free. Or, just serve the condiments on the side.
Break a toothpick in half & stick one half into a pimento stuffed olive and the other half into the top portion of the sandwich creating your eyes. The pimento stuffed olives gives the best effect, but you could also use small pickles, black olives, etc. Be creative!
That’s it – your done. Now eat that sandwich before it eats you… 😉

Stack the lunchmeat & cheese on one of the sandwich bread rounds, leaving the jagged part of the cheese hanging over a bit. Top with the other sandwich bread round. Break the 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.
