Sometimes you don't need a difficult recipe just a little creativity to make a meal fun and enjoyable for your kids. This is nutritious sandwich that you and the kids will love to eat. Inspired by this Summers new blockbuster film The Dark Night Rises, scheduled to release in July 2012, and a vintage 1977 baking set we own (pictured below), I came up with this fun recipe. Of course it would be perfect for a Halloween gathering too. I originally had planned to use rye bread, so that the bats would be darker, but had to improvise since it was out of stock.
Bacon, fully cooked
Bread, toasted (preferably a dark rye, we used whole wheat)
Mayo, we used fat free
Using a bat shaped cookie cutter, cut your toasted bread into bats. We were able to get two bats out of each slice of bread. Add a little mayo, bacon, avocado, and tomato to complete your batty meal.
Please enjoy this trailer of The Dark Night Rises coming out this Summer! It looks like it will be action packed. Although my sandwich is kid friendly, the new movie I believe will be rated PG-13.
I stumbled upon this vintage 1977 baking set in our garage. My husband shared the sweetest story with me. His dad made this Superman cake for him when he was five years old, and stayed up all night making little stars all over the cake in frosting. I think a super hero cake maybe in our future this Summer too.
