One of my favorite Halloween lunch ideas, these fun Frankenstein Halloween Sandwich Wraps are a must-make for the kids!
THESE WRAPS!!! Are you freaking out? I’m totally freaking out!
I’ve decided the world needs more healthy Halloween treat options and these lunch-worthy Frankenstein’s monster wraps are just what the witch doctor ordered. HA!
They’re sure to have your little monsters gobbling up their veggies!
My 7 year old helped me arrange the cheese and veggies into fun little faces and we had a total blast.
They’re perfect as a fun activity to pair with Halloween cookie decorating or as a spooky surprise lunch to pack your kiddos for school.
OMG you could even have a crafty little Halloween themed playdate and let all the kids decorate their own monster sandwich. LOVE IT!
Today’s tasty recipe is sponsored by Cabot Creamery Co-op as part of a delicious ongoing partnership. I love how they always let me go wild with my creations and have the best cheeses evahhh!
They’re seriously my favorite. Their line of naturally gluten-free and lactose-free cheeses are flavorful, creamy, and perfect for pairing with just about everything!
Wrap it Up! Halloween Sandwich Ideas + Options
Though the outside is almost too cute to eat, these sandwich wraps are not just edible, they’re delicious!
You can basically transform any of your family’s favorite sandwiches into these Halloween themed wraps.
I paired a creamy, cheesy veggie-kissed sandwich spread (recipe below – it’s so good!) with crisp romaine lettuce and oven roasted sliced turkey. Sliced tomatoes or avocado would be an awesome addition.
Turkey-Apple-Cheddar is always good as is Ham and Cheese, Chicken Salad, Tuna Salad, Italian-style wraps, or even Greek gryo-style wraps with chicken, feta, and veggies. So many possibilities!
You could also fill these wraps with the ingredients from my California Veggie Sandwich to make a 100% vegetarian wrap. SO GOOD!
You could even make a vegan version of your favorite sandwich/wrap.
What Foods Make Good Sandwich Faces?
Here’s the fun part – you can copy my silly little faces or get super creative with what you have on hand!
Anything that can be sliced into discs will make marvelous eyeballs. You can use sliced carrot, cheese, cucumber, olives, cherry tomatoes, zucchini, hard-boiled egg, or a combination of your favorites like I did.
For the smile you can used slice bell pepper, pretzel sticks, cheese, cucumber slices, cooked noodles (omg I love a good wiggly smile) and more.
Tortilla chips make excellent Frankenstein hair or you could go crazy and add a fuzzy pile of sprouts to give your monster a Bob Ross inspired ‘do.

- For an easy cheesy sandwich spread, combine spreadable veggie cream cheese with mayo, cheddar, garlic powder, and a teeny pinch of salt and pepper. Use an electric hand mixer to whip the ingredients together or blend well with a fork.
- Spread mixture onto spinach wraps/tortillas and top with turkey and lettuce.
- Fold into a rectangle. (Secure with toothpicks if needed.) Flip over and decorate with cheese and veggie eyeballs, bell pepper mouth, and tortilla chip hair.
- Use a small cookie cutter or knife to make circles in sliced cheese for the whites of the eyes. For the telltale Frankenstein bolts, cut cheese into cubes, place on toothpicks, and push one onto each side of the wrap.
- Have fun with it and enjoy!
