Thanksgiving week

Here we are at Muffin Tin Monday yet again.
This week's theme was Thanksgiving. Since we have not yet had our turkey dinner, I did my best to re-create the experience for Island Boy.

Top Row (l-r): Turkey-shaped turkey and stuffing sandwich (with turkey pick), carrot coins, tater tots
Bottom Row (l-r): Turkey-shaped swiss cheese, corn (with corn pick), turkey-shaped cranberry sauce
The turkey and stuffing sandwich is probably not quite what you're thinking. To creat this, I took two slices of bread, buttered them on one side, and then placed in the toaster oven for 3 minutes. I then sprinkled the buttered sides with a bit of ground sage, crushed rosemary, and the tiniest hint of onion powder. Then I put them back in the toaster oven for another two minutes. Placing the buttered sides on the inside of the sandwich, I put 3-4 slices of turkey lunch meat in between, then cut into the turkey shape. I can tell you, having shared the remainders of the sandwich, that it was nothing short of amazing, and I will be re-creating this very very soon.

As for Island Boy, he barely touched the sandwich. He might have eaten the head off of it. He went straight for the cranberry sauce and the cheese. Then he ate the corn. Surprisingly, the tater tots went pretty much untouched, too. And by now you can probably guess what happened to the carrots, haha. I'm still trying, though.


  1. Sounds yummy! I'll have to try it... I'll do a lazier version though. I don't have the patience to cook something twice! And the toppings probably wouldn't do as well in my toaster, as I don't have a toaster oven, and am too lazy to try in my regular oven!

  2. The sandwich sounds great! Love all the turkeys.

  3. The sandwich sounds yum. Great looking tin!

  4. I want to dig right in! I love the little toothpick pictures you added for the theme. Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. It turned out great! I thought those were beets and I was all impressed your tot ate beets until I read cranberry sauce. Duh! ;-)

  6. Love your turkey cutter! I couldn't get my children to eat the cranberry sauce on our tin. Gotta try that sandwich. Probably wouldn't be too well recived by the children though.
