If you missed my Toy Story Jessie lunch from a few weeks ago, my family went with a Toy Story theme for Halloween this year. We had a great time, and I hope you did as well. I wanted to put some closure on this time of year by doing one last Toy Story lunch. I went with a Mr. Potato Head lunch because my wife and I dressed in these costumes. Who knows, maybe a Woody and Buzz lunch will come eventually. Instead of making a bunch of potato head pieces out of food, I thought it would be fun to give the toy a scare and actually serve potatoes a few different ways!
I made this lunch in an Easy Lunch Boxes container. I also did some of the picture taking and editing on my new Sprout by HP device. I am still getting used to the Sprout, but it sure is fun! I hope this can inspire you to do some creative food ideas during the upcoming holiday season.
IngredientsWhole wheat sprouted bread
Black yogurt covered raisin
Black edible modeling dough
Brussel sprouts, cooked
Directions1. Cut two slices of bread into potato shape. Cut ham and cheese into other potato head pieces as shown. Slice yogurt covered raisin in half for the eyes.
2. Mold modeling dough into the shape of a mustache. I was going to use nori but I didn't have any. Either will work.
3. Place bread in main dish and place brussel sprouts as the feet. Surround him with grapes. Arrange other potato head pieces as shown.
4.In one side dish put leftover baked potatoes. I used mini organic ones from a local farm and seasoned them with my daughter's favorite spice. In second side dish put a few potato chips.
5. If you have any other ideas for pieces, feel free to use them instead of the potato side dished I put in. Let me know what you came up with!
