The Gruffalo Fun Food Sandwich

My three year old absolutely loves The Gruffalo. It is the most read book that we own. Even though she can recite it, we must read it about ten times a day. 

As it is her absolute favourite I thought it would be nice to recreate it in food form to celebrate World Book Day. 

Like with all my food art creations, my aim is to make it as easy as possible for you to recreate at home for your little ones. I hope you find this sandwich Gruffalo achievable and please let me know if you give it a go.

How to Make The Gruffalo Fun Food Sandwich

To make your own The Gruffalo sandwich you will need:

Two slices of wholemeal bread

Your choice of sandwich filling

Small piece of cucumber

A carrot

Sliced cheese


Fill your sandwich with your chosen filling. Using a large circular cookie cutter create a circle, you might need to flatten with a rolling pin to ensure your sandwich fits. Do not disregard the leftovers as you will need them to complete The Gruffalo. Using some of the leftovers create a small circular nose. I cut this using a knife as I don't have a small enough cookie cutter. To create the eyes, I simply sliced two pieces of carrot. For the eyebrows I cut some of the crust and placed above the carrot eyes. Using some more leftover crust, I added two ears. Next I made the horns and teeth using sliced cheese. I just cut these using a knife. I then shaped a pieces of cucumber into a small circle and placed on the nose for the poisonous wart. Finally, I rolled two raisins into balls and added them to the eyes. 

I then included some Organix Cheese & Onion Gruffalo Claws and Organix Cocoa & Vanilla Gruffalo Biscuits. These are available in selected supermarkets.
