Summer is a fun time to experiment with food,especially with the kids. In fact, there are many kids around the country that are actually good little chefs already, and I’m sure we have quite a few in the Hampton Roads area.
Encourage your little chefs to play with their food with this cute little Pinto Pony sandwich. Sometimes encouraging a little creativity in the kitchen is all it takes.
For the Pinto Pony party sandwich:
- 3 slices bread
- Celery sticks
- Radish slice (eye)
- Yellow pepper
- Orange pepper
- Carrot sticks
- Sandwich filling
What To Do:
Stack two slices of bread and then cut out a large rectangle for the pony body. Cut the third slice in half and cut out the pony head/neck. From the top “pony body” section, cut out three small round circles. You can use a straw with a large opening to cut the circles or another small container with an appropriate sized opening. Use the straw to cut a corresponding size piece of bread (contrasting) or a veggie for the spots. Add sandwich filling to pony sandwich and then add the spots.
Arrange on plate. Add celery sticks for legs and then cut out ears, mane and tail from the peppers. Cut a thin slice of radish for the eye, making a smaller “eye” from carrot to top this. Make a tiny nostril from celery. Garnish with tiny pieces of carrot sticks.
