Frankenstein Halloween Sandwich Wraps

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!

I used Cabot’s ultra-smooth Monterey Jack cheese for the base of the eyeballs and the bolts, and their flavorful Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese for the sandwich spread.

You can find a bajillion recipes featuring Cabot cheese on this little blog of mine in the recipe archives and even more on Cabot’s recipe page too.

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.

T-Rex Options:

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!

Vegetarian Option:

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.

    1. Hi Beth! We just lay them flat and then eat those first before picking up the wrap to eat. They transfer to the plate pretty easy if you keep them horizontal. You could also use toothpicks if preferred.
