Party Foods - Bagel Snake
This is a fun way of arranging sandwiches and I find that bagels are popular party foods with both children and their mums and dads. You can make the snake as long as you like depending on how many bagels you use and you can use a variety of toppings. I have chosen tuna and egg toppings, which are both nutritious.
You can also use cookie cutters to cut sandwiches into novelty shapes like animals or gingerbread people. This is a simple way of transforming a simple sandwich into something special.
1 x 200g (7 oz) can of tuna in sunflower oil, (drained)
Egg Mayonnaise with salad cress
2 to 3 hard-boiled eggs (10 minutes)
A strip of red pepper
Slice the bagels in half and then cut each half down the centre to form a semi circle. Cut out the head of the snake from one of the pieces of bagel and the tail from another. Mix the ingredients for the tuna topping and mix the ingredients for the egg topping. Spread one bagel and the head and tail with the egg topping and half a bagel with the tuna topping.
Decorate the tuna topping with halved cherry tomatoes and the egg topping with strips of chives arranged in a criss-cross pattern. Arrange the bagels to form the body of a snake. Then attach the head to the snake’s body and arrange two slices of stuffed olive to form the eye and cut out a forked tongue from the strip of red pepper.
