Open-Face Butterfly Sandwich
• 3-4 slices of bread
• yellow cheese
• orange cheese
• tomato and cherry tomato
• surimi (crab stick)
Boil an egg for around 8-10min. When done, cool it down in cold water.
In the meantime, prepare the bread to make the wings: from the bread slices, cut two big and two small ovals. Use a knife or a cookie cutter.
Spread butter on the bread
For the lower wings: peel the egg and cut it into slices. Cut two slices from the radish.
Cut the ham in the same shape as the smaller parts of bread. Place the ham on the bread, then a slice of egg and a slice of radish.
Repeat for the second lower wing.
For the top wings: cut the tomato into slices - take two big middle slices. Use a knife or a cookie cutter to make two hearts from the orange cheese. Cut the yellow cheese in the same shape as the bigger parts of the bread. Place the yellow cheese on the bread, followed by the tomato and the yellow cheese heart.
Repeat for the second big wing.
Place the butterfly's wings on the plate, as shown in the picture. Place the surimi in the middle as the butterfly body. Place a cheery tomato as the butterfly head. Use a knife to make two small holes in this cheery tomato and insert the chive that will be the butterfly antennae. Enjoy!
Variations and Suggestions:
Swap out the tomato with cucumber for a bright green butterfly, use only egg whites filled with salsa for a lower-calorie option, or top a few pieces with sliced fruit instead of vegetables for the pickiest kid. Have fun, and enjoy the butterfly!
