Santa Claus Sandwich Rolls

Would you like these for a Christmas-themed bento, or for a Christmas party?


Sandwich bread
2 slices
Fish sausage
Cherry tomatoes
Sliced cheese
2/3 slice
Nori seaweed
a small amount
as needed
to taste


1. Remove the wrapper from the fish sausage. Cover with plastic wrap, and microwave for 50 seconds to 1 minutes at 500 W. Cut in half.
2. Cover the sandwich bread with plastic wrap, microwave for 10 seconds at 500 W, then spread margarine and ketchup on top. This is "(a)".
3. Wrap the sausage pieces with "(a)", and wrap with plastic wraps, then let them. Let's call these "(b)".
4. Cut each "(b)" roll into 3 even pieces. Place the cut ends facing up. (*And the joint-side should be at the top where the Santa heads would be.) Let's call these the "(c)" rolls.
5. Make beards with the sliced cheese by using a leaf shape cookie cutter.
6. Place 1/3 of the leaf shape cookie cutter on the edge of sliced cheese like this, and cut out beards. Use these to decorate the "(c)" rolls.
7. Punch out nori seaweed with mini craft punches, and decorate on "(c)". (*It's easier to decorate with nori seaweed if you use the tip of a moistened toothpick so the nori sticks.)
8. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half, and secure with picks to hide the joints, then it's done.
