Ingredients

For the Sandwiches:

6 slices medium sliced brown bread
6 slices medium sliced white bread
3 tablespoons cream cheese
3 tablespoons mango chutney
1/4 cucumber, thinly sliced
a little softened butter
3 large slices edam or Swiss cheese
1 large tomato, thinly sliced

To Decorate:

1 medium tomato
cucumber
1 cooked pea
edam or Swiss cheese
Method
  1. Make the brown sandwiches. Spread one side of the bread with a little butter, top with edam and sliced tomato. Sandwich together.
  2. Make the white sandwiches. Spread one side with 1 tablespoon of cream cheese. Spread the other with mango chutney. Top with cucumber then sandwich together.
  3. Cut out three rounds from each sandwich using a 3cm round cutter.
  4. Arrange the sandwiches in a “s” shape to make the body of the caterpillar and arrange on a board. Make the face of the caterpillar by making eyes from slicing the pea in half and sticking onto the tomato with cream cheese to make the eyes. Make a mouth out of cheese and stick to the tomato.
  5. Make ears out of thin strips of cucumber and push into the top of the tomato. Slice chunks of cucumber and use to make the feet.
