I found this great idea for carrot shaped sandwiches on Pinterest and thought it would be a wonderful recipe for Easter Brunch or Lunch. I adapted the recipe slightly as I did not have some of the tools she was using in the original post.
Next time I will either use non-stick foil or remember to spray the cone. It was not awful to take off but it would have been much easier.
Once you have your carrot forms, roll out your crescent rolls into a rectangle and cut thin long strips. These you will place along your foil to shape the sandwich pocket.
I made a egg wash and added red and yellow food coloring to create the orange color. I think this worked well.
Let them cool completely and then take out the foil center.
You can really fill these cute carrot sandwiches with just about anything from chicken salad, tuna salad and egg salad.
Add a few sprigs of herb, I used some parsley I had on hand. And you have yourself a festive dish for the brunch table.
I also loved them because they truly were a sandwich, as the kids could hold them in their hand to eat.
My kids love egg salad so I made some to go inside our sandwiches. These might even prove to be a great April Fools Day Trick.
A quick tip for making egg salad, use that pastry blender you never use to break up the eggs to the perfect size for egg salad. No chopping necessary and you can do it right in the bowl you are going to mix the egg salad ingredients!
