How to Make Cheesy Monster Faces for Halloween



These Monster Face Sandwiches are a great Halloween recipe to balance out an evening of trick-or-treating with ingredients you already have on hand. Use sandwich bread, sliced Wisconsin cheese (your family’s favorite style), and a variety of vegetables cut into fun shapes. Let the kids assemble their own monster creations – easily eaten as a whole or deconstructed and eaten piece by piece.

There’s no need to buy special ingredients for toppings. Just peek through your fridge and use your imagination. Broccoli makes great hair, bell peppers can be lips or ears, sliced olives make great eyeballs, white cheddar cut into small shapes made perfect teeth. Kids will love the festive project and the opportunity to create something fun with their food. Perfect for a Halloween party!
