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!

Ingriedients for your use

Ingredients:

1/4 cup unsalted butter

1/3 cup light brown sugar

1/4 cup honey

2 cup quick-coat oats(do not use old-fashioned whole-rolled oats; too large and bars will not hold together)

1 cup Rice Crispies cereal(or similair generic)

1 cup tropical dried fruit medley, diced into small pieces(pinapple, mangos, and bannas)

Directions:

Line an 8×8-inch pan with parchment paper set aside.

In a large bowl, add the oats, Rice Krispies, dried fruit and salt. Stir to combine and set aside.

In a separate large microwave-save bowl, add the butter, brown sugar, and honey. Heat in microwave for 30 seconds, or until butter has melted and ingredients can be whisked smooth.

Return bowl to microwave and heat on high power for 1 minute. Stop and whisk.

Mixture should be bubbling to ensure that the bars hold together upon cooling. If yours isn’t bubbling return bowl to microwave and heat for another 30 to 60 seconds, or until bubbling.

Add the oats, Rice Krispies, dried fruit, mixture to the bubblin sugar mixture and stir to combine.

Turn mixture out into prepared pan, hard packing it with a spatula so form an even, smooth, flat layer Make sure to really press it down firmly and compactly.

Freeze for about 10 minutes, or untill bars have set(not frozen), and slice into bars. We have tried storing the bars at room temp for longer than a few hours.

The Banana Boats are a famous traditional recipe treat that was made by the social networking service company in Seattle, Washington in 1997 by one of the of the most professional bakers and by one of the greatest recipe makers in history. Originally the banana boat was made with chocolate and marshmallows with the banana but there are other ingredients to make the banana boat more fun and creative. Like instead of marshmallows with the chocolate it can be whipped cream and chocolate or any other kind of other toppings with it. The banana boats were also a magnificent treat to eat and very easy to make with only 3 ingredients. Also people of all ages kids and grownups can make the banana boat in their own way.

Ingredients

Bananas

Cool Whip

Directions

Chocolate chips

1 – Split the middle of the banana from top to bottom very slowly not all the way but only till the banana is cut wide open enough so then the toppings can be put in the middle from top to bottom.

2 – Spoon the cool whip into the slit of the banana boat.

3 – Last comes use the chocolate chips, sprinkle them on top of the whipped cream banana with a spoon or by hand, then and only then the banana boat is done and ready to be tasted.
