  • Bread
  • Sandwich filling of your choice
  • Thick ham 1 piece
  • cheese
  • cucumber
  • carrot


  • Step 1

    Take a large, circular cookie cutter and cut a circle from a slice of bread for the body. Using a smaller cutter, make another circle for the head. Use butter and your sandwich filling to stick these pieces together.

  • Step 2

    From the leftover bread, cut two small ears and a smaller oval shape for the snout. Cut the same shapes from a piece of ham and lay on top of the bread to fit the shapes of the ears and nose.

  • Step 3

    To make the nostrils, push two holes right through the ham and bread of the snout using a small cutter or chopstick.

  • Step 4

    Place some cucumber skin beneath the nostrils under the bread and ham nose. You should be able to see the dark skin through the nostril holes.

  • Step 5

    Finish off by making some eyes from discs of cheese and cucumber and finish with a carrot twist for the tail.
