Ghost sandwiches


  • Ghost shape cookie cutter
  • Your favorite bread – white, whole wheat, gluten-free etc.
  • Filling for your sandwiches
  • Edible candy eyes, sliced olives, or a food writer pen (optional)

Sandwich filling ideas for shaped sandwiches

  • Ham, turkey, or chicken with cheese
  • Nutella
  • Chicken salad
  • Peanut butter and jelly
  • Egg salad
  • Cucumber cream cheese
  • Turkey and cranberry sauce


Using the ghost shape cookie cutter, cut out two slices of bread for each sandwich.

Put your filling on top of one slice of bread, and then add your second slice of bread on top.

If you want to add eyes to your ghost sandwiches, then use edible candy eyes, sliced olives, or a food writer pen.

Note: If you are not going to serve these right away, cover them with cling wrap and put them into the refrigerator until you are ready to serve them. If you don’t do this, the bread will dry out and get hard.

Tip: Don’t throw out the excess bread, use it to make croutons, breadcrumbs, or stuffing for your holiday meals.
