Let us look at the team players for this Owl grilled cheese Halloween sandwich:
Bread: I used Rye due to the almost black color like an owl. If you cannot find Rye then use any dark colored bread
Cheese: Choose a contrasting white colored mozzarella cheese. You might want to stay away from yellowish cheese like cheddar / American.
Filling: I didn’t use any, since I wanted to stay focussed on the construction of this grilled cheese Halloween sandwich.
Follow along for Step-by-step instructions on making a Halloween sandwich idea:
Step-1: Place two slices of bread on the counter
Step-2: Place 2 slices of mozzarella on one slice (we are going with double slice, since it contributes a more prominent whitish color. Cut cheese to fit.
We’ll need three round cookie cutters of different sizes, that are proportionate to the size of bread that you use. I’ve used 2 1/2-inch, 1 1/4-inch, 3/4-inch (If you notice, I’ve used a pastry tip for the smallest size. So, use whatever you can find around the home)
Step-3: Using the largest cutter, cut one circle (off-centered) from the bread slice with no cheese
Step-4: Using the same cutter, cut another overlapping circle to get piece-1 and piece-2
Step-5: Place the bread slice over the cheese
Step-6: Using the middle cookie cutter, cut one circle (off-centered like this) from each piece_1 and piece_2 and place over the cheese.
Step-7: Using the largest cutter, cut one piece (to get three pieces) from piece_1, to make the nose and wings.
Step-8: Place nose in between the eyes (you might have to snug it in)
Step-9: Fold the remaining cheese slice in half. Using the smallest cutter, cut 2 circles and place over eyes.
Step-10: Place two slice of olives for pupil
Step-11: Cut two small pieces of cheese and place on either side of the face (this will work as a glue to hold the wing in place. So, let this piece be smaller than the wings)
Step-12: Place two wings over the cheese and secure with toothpicks ( I broke one toothpick in half and used to secure each wing). We will remove the toothpicks before serving.
Step-13: Cook grilled cheese Halloween sandwich. Add some butter into a medium non-stick pan and place over medium heat. Hold the sandwich on both sides and gently place in the hot pan, cover with a lid and cook for about 3 minutes, until cheese begins to melt. (The sandwich will be cooked only on one side, for obvious reasons)
And we are DONE!!!!
