Are these knuckle sandwiches? Or finger sandwiches?

High five finger sandwiches where the bread dinner rolls are shaped into hands/fingers.

They’re intended to be finger sandwiches. :)

They are actually really easy to make, too. Instead of shaping bread after it has been cut or having to make it fresh, they used frozen dinner rolls. Simply flatten out a piece of dough into a rectangle and then cut slits into the dough where you want the fingers to be. Bake for 10 minutes or so and then fill with your favorite sandwich fillings.

These were originally made for Halloween, but I think they could work for a lot of different parties actually. For example, how about any “congratulatory” celebration where these could be offered as “high-fives”?

Need help playing with your food? Sunnyside egg shaper

Sunnyside up egg shaper that is a heat-resistant cookie cutter made of silicone to make eggs look like sunshine with clouds behind it

Get the sunnyside silicon egg shaper on Amazon.

I have a set of cookie cutters (that I love to spill), but I very rarely use them. I can count the number of times I’ve used them myself even, and I know I could do it on my fingers. I have every intention of using them more, but I don’t usually make shaped cookies and at other times, I simply free-form with a knife or shaping objects instead.

Even if I bought the above egg shaper, chances are, I’d probably only use it once or twice. I love the idea, though, and I think that for anyone who wants to have a little more fun with their food, but doesn’t know how, this would be a good way to get some inspiration. It’s a little limited as to how much you could play with it considering it’s a set shape and isn’t going to work with many other foods, but kids especially would love this. It might inspire you to create other scenes to go along with your sunny side up egg picture, though.

Wanna know my favorite things about this little guy?

Of course you do! (The benefit of a blog means that I get to answer for you before you ever even hear the question. :P )

  1. They’re completely edible! Sometimes we have to resort to using non-food items to make the quirky theme come together, but it’s more magical when it’s all food.
  2. It’s savory! I’ve said it before, but cakes and cookies are easily to play with and turn them into creative creations. People don’t do it nearly as much with dinner items.
  3. It’s versatile! River from Wing It Vegan did what I end up doing often times; she experimented with other toppings that might make the look better. You’ll have to hit her up to see the ones with peas and black eyed peas.
  4. It’s easy! No fancy skills or tools needed here. It’s no more complicated than building a real snowman, but a whole lot warmer. :)
  5. It’s vegan! While I’m not personally vegan and have no interest in being such, I hate when I see vegans being completely boring by their own set restrictions. Who says you can’t still have some fun with the food?
