  • 2 pieces brown bread
  • 1 tsp butter or spread
  • 1 slice roast beef (or filling of your choice)
  • 1 mini Babybel cheese
  • 1 slice raw carrot
  • 1 blueberry or 1 red grape


  • Make up your sandwich with a filling of your choice.
  • Using a large round cookie cutter or top of a drinking glass or beaker, cut a semi-circle shaped slice from the top off the sandwich, forming the top of the owl's head with points on each side for the head tufts.
  • Unwrap the Babybel cheese, peel off the wax and discard. Slice the cheese in two across the middle to form two round circles. Place the cheese circles on top of the sandwich to form the eyes.
  • Cut the carrot slice into a triangle and slice the blueberry or grape in two.
  • Place the carrot triangle on the sandwich under the eyes to form the beak, and finish your owl off with the two blueberry or grape halves for pupils.
  • Pack in a lunch box (we used our blue Yumbox Panino) or serve immediately.
