Angry Bird Sandwich Recipe

We had a great time creating our own Angry Bird Sandwiches! And a great time eating them!

Ingredients and Tools:

  1. Bagels or English muffins.
  2. Round pre-sliced lunchmeat (approximately the same diameter of the bagels and English muffins).  We used bologna, turkey and pepperoni.
  3. Round thin pre-sliced cheese (approximately the same diameter of the bagels and English muffins).  We used provolone cheese.
  4. Colby and Monterey Jack block cheese.
  5. Round shaped cookie cutter, approximately ¾” in diameter.
  6. Triangle shaped cookie cutter, approximately ¾” in diameter.
  7. Roasted red peppers pre-cut in thin strips.
  8. Fresh spinach, uncooked.
  9. Large platter or plate.
  10. Optional: mayonnaise.

Preparations:

  1. Nest: Spread a thin layer of spinach evenly over the platter or plate for the nest.
  2. Split the bagels and English muffins in half.
  3. Eyes: Using the ¾” round shaped cookie cutter; cut the Colby and Monterey Jack block cheese in circles for the eyes (2 for each sandwich face).
  4. Beak: Using the ¾” triangle shaped cookie cutter; cut the Colby and Monterey jack block cheese in triangles for the beak (1 for each sandwich face).
  5. Creative Accents: Break the pepper strips in different size pieces as desired for accents.  Some of the accents we created were hair, eyebrows, eyeballs, feet, legs, feathers, mustaches, and ears.

Building the Sandwich Face:

  • 1st layer: Place a bagel or English muffin half on top of the spinach platter or plate.
  • 2nd layer: Place 1 to 3 slices of the round lunchmeat on top of the bagel or English muffin half. We used a combination of bologna, turkey and pepperoni.
  • 3rd layer: If desired, place 1 slice of the thin round cheese on top of the lunchmeat.  We used provolone cheese.
  • 4th layer: Place the eyes and beak on top of the lunchmeat/thin cheese. We used Colby and Monterey Jack cheese.
  • 5th layer: If desired, place the pepper strips for creative accents. We made hair, eyebrows, eyeballs, feet, legs, feathers, mustaches, and ears.

Note: We ate our sandwiches after the pictures were taken and they were delicious!
