Kids recipes: Playcard Sandwiches with Cookie Cutters
February 1, 2017

Kids are sick and tired of the regular, plain peanut butter jelly sandwiches.
Nowadays, kids are quite demanding on different types of breakfast meal served on the table.

If you give them the peanut butter jelly sandwiches 5 days in a week, they will be moaning “ Why the same breakfast?!”

There are many types of sandwiches across the web where you can find easy and quick to prepare sandwiches that your kids might liked best.

I had managed to figured out that hard boiled eggs mixed with mayonnaise , sandwiched between squared breads with stamp out shape in the middle, had attracted their taste buds quickly then expected.

Alternatively, you could add in another type of fillings such as tuna fillings, mixed with mustard and lemon juice.

Every wondered how did I induced those holes in the middle of the breads?

How did I do that?

Simply use your good old cookie cutters to stamp out the shapes onto the breads.
If you want to create an unique sandwich, cut the bread crust off, cut them into squares or triangular shapes.

Get those big cookie cutters with different type of shapes such as stars, flowers or heart shapes and stamp them through the squared breads, only a few of them, not all of them.

Just stamp out those breads for the top surface of the sandwiches.

A mixture of wholemeal bread and white breads, toasted or fresh from the bag will do.
