Turkey-Shaped Turkey Sandwich Lunch Idea

Hello Sandwich

My son loves when I create designs with his lunch. He eats a lot of turkey sandwiches and with Thanksgiving coming up, I decided it would be cute to make his turkey sandwich look like a turkey! Find out how you can too below. This is also a great way to feed your kids Thanksgiving leftovers!
 
This turkey-shaped turkey sandwich is such a fun lunch idea and perfect for fall or Thanksgiving school lunches | Sandwich | Lunch | School Lunch | Lunch Ideas | Turkey | Gobble Gobble | Thanksgiving | Fall Season | Autumn | Sandwich Shapes
 

You do not need to use turkey for this sandwich, that is the wonderful part. You can make this sandwich out of any type of sandwich your child enjoys eating. Cut off the crust if you need to and you can still make it!
 

What You Need

  • A sandwich (two slices of regular bread with your favorite ingredients–we used turkey and cheese.)
  • Cheddar cheese
  • White cheese (we used monterey jack cheese but you can also use mozzarella)
  • Black olives
  • A red Mike and Ike or piece of red pepper or even a little bit of cranberry sauce
  • A sharp knife

 

Directions

1. First step is to have your sandwich fully made.

2. Cut out the turkey shape using a sharp knife. For the body, cut a bowling pin shape in the center. Cut pieces around the outside to make the tail. Make sure these cuts are completely through or the sandwich could tear. I used an up and down motion to avoid squishing or tearing the bread.

3. Cut an eye shape out of the white cheese and a small triangle for a beak out of the yellow cheese.

4. Cut tiny pieces of black olive to look like pupils for the eyes then place the candy piece, pepper, or cranberry sauce along the beak as the snood (the red piece off the beak.)
