I’ve been a bit hesitant to try my new FunBites cutter on my homemade bread, as it can be quite crumbly and experience has shown that sadly, it doesn’t go well with any kind of cutter, however I really wanted to try mini sandwiches. I was inspired by Keith at Oh Bento after he made mini burger bites, and decided to see how an English muffin would fare in the Cube It cutter. As you can see it worked out well, especially after I tried these great tips from Cristi at Bent On Better Lunches.
In this lunch Small Child had an English muffin, split, buttered and filled with cheddar cheese and ham, then cut into mini bite-size sandwiches with the Cube It cutter. I skewered the mini sandwiches on a mixture of animal picks, to create a sandwich zoo. I added some raw carrot cut into mini fish, in a penguin shaped silicone cup, and some bear shaped cucumber slices in a bear shaped silicone cup. On the side he had some plain popcorn decorated with a dolphin, and some mixed dried fruits and seeds with a mini tiger pick.
For dessert, he had a tub of vanilla yoghurt topped with a frozen strawberry yoghurt butterfly, an organix oat bar (cut into two), and segments of clementine topped with an elephant pick.
This was quite a large lunch, but he ate most of it; only a little of the dried fruit and one segment of clementine was left!
