Critters for the picky eaters in your family

I've found that, by changing the way foods look, you can actually get the kids to eat some of those foods they normally would say " Yuk " to. Instead of arguing with them about the need for nourishing foods, why not just disguise them? It's pretty easy as you can see from the recipe below...


  • Older frying pan, preferably cast iron

  • 2 slices of whole wheat, rye or pumpernickle bread

  • butter

  • 2 slices of cheese ( your preference )

  • slice of tomato ( skinned )



  1. Peel the skin from the tomato and slice it fairly thick.

  2. Lightly butter two slices of bread.

  3. Place 1 piece of bread, butter side down, in frying pan.

  4. Place 1 slice of cheese on bread.

  5. Place tomato slice on top.

  6. Place the other slice of cheese ojn top.

  7. Place remaining slice of bread, buttered side up, on top.

  8. Use cookie cutters or sharp knife to design ghost, bat and other critter shapes out of the sandwiches.

  9. Fry on low heat to prevent butter from burning.

  10. You will want to use an older pan for this to prevent it from getting scratches when creating your design.

  11. Leftover pieces can be fried in the same pan and used for top decorations unless, of course, you have a hungry canine garbage disposal.

  12. The larger the cookie cutter is the less waste there will be.

  13. Don't forget to throw those tomato skins in the compost bin now.
