The recipe has a main scary sandwich with a coffin sandwich and a flying egg monster


Purple cabbage: It should be cut into thin strips, you can use kitchen scissors for the same.

Red pepper: For this you need to cut out a thin strip for the lip and small circles for the red eye. You can first use a knife to cut a large piece, then use scissors to make a circle out of it. You have to make the eyes red. Cut thin strips for the ‘red cross’ on the small sandwich which is shaped like a coffin.

Cucumber: Measure the length of the slice, then cut the cucumber slices lengthwise. You also need a circular slice for two ears and two thin strips for the ear hair.

Egg: The white part of the eye is again a small part of an egg white.

Slice of cheese: Take half a slice of cheese and smile on it, then use a knife to cut out the teeth.

Toasting: Toast the two slices of bread in a toasting pan, so that the strips are on top and kept ready. If you don’t have a grill pan, you can grill them in a regular pan / toaster as well.

To assemble

The casket: Cut the top slice in half, place the Guacamole on the white side of the bread, close it, then cut the top in an inverted V shape. Now the toasted strips should look like a coffin, then you can put the strips of red pepper to make the red cross.

The egg: Gently drill three holes with a straw; put peppercorns to create the eyes. Make a small slit on the top and put the strips of purple cabbage, then gently place the egg on two open sheets of the purple cabbage.

The Spooky Sandwich: Take a black plate and keep a slice of bread on it. Spread out the guacamole / cheese and arrange the cucumber slices. Now use the purple cabbage strips for the hair and the red pepper and egg white cutouts for the eyes. Then use the polka dot to create the nose and the red lip pepper cutout. Gently place the cottage cheese under the lips for the “monster” teeth. Cut the circular slice of cucumber in half and use them for the ears and pass the thin strips over them.

If you have any leftover cucumber left over, you can cut it into a coffin shape and glue cheese cutouts in a cross shape as well.
