Looking for a way to transform an ordinary snack into something that the kids will really love? Try making a Rainbow Sandwich!
Summer has been kinda lame over here, the little girl is still sick and now, I’m also sick and it has been generally such a drag .
It was a holiday yesterday but since we had to stay home, I thought of making something special for the kids. Just a quick reminder though, I’m all about the EASY kind of special. And this rainbow sandwich? Is just that.
Ready to impress some kids? All you will need are the following:
3 hard boiled eggs
4 tbsp Jolly Mayonnaise
salt and pepper to taste
What you need to do:
Cut out 10-12 sandwich shapes from bread using whatever cookie cutter shape you like and set aside.
Peel and mash boiled eggs.
Add mayonnaise, salt and pepper.
Equally divide spread into 5 (or depending on the number of colors you want to use) and place in different dishes.
Add a drop of food coloring into each dish and mix well (different color per dish).
Lay out 5 slices of bread, spread your colored egg spread on each of the slices from edge to edge, different color on each slice, arrange sandwiches in rainbow order then top with a slice without a spread and viola, rainbow sandwich!
The kids loved it and it made me feel less guilty about being such a grumpy mom these days. I think this will do well during birthday parties or picnics too!
So, whatcha think?
