Pirate Ship Sandwich

Shiver me timbers!! Thar be a sandwich!

You need:

  • Sandwich (2 pieces of bread)
  • Cream Cheese
  • Wheat Thins
  • Pretzel Stick
  • Chocolate Chip

Cut out a skull shape in the bottom right of a piece of bread. I used a small lid to make a circle, and then using a knife, I cut a small rectangle coming off the bottom of the circle.

Spread a Wheat Thin or other flat cracker with cream cheese and stick to the back of the bread, with the cream cheese showing through the front side of the bread. (I had to use 2 wheat thins to cover the area – it made it look like the skull had a jaw – perfect!).

Wrong side of bread shown.

Make whatever sandwich you would like, placing the prepared piece of bread on top of the sandwich.

Cut diagonally. Place chocolate chip eyes on skull. Place pretzel sticks inside skull piece of sandwich, sticking out about half an inch at the bottom.

For the flag: Attach a pretzel stick to a triangular broken piece of cracker with cream cheese. You could also use a cut piece of fruit roll up for a flag.  Stick pretzel inside sandwich, sticking out at the top of the sail.

You might need to prop the sail up even more, depending on your bread. If so, use pretzel sticks to prop it up.

Arrgh! Even Davey Jones would enjoy this sandwich!
