Football Quarterback Snack!

Football Quarterback Snack!
We made this football lunch now that the season has kicked off. NFL football is a big deal in this house and we are big Atlanta Falcons fans!

This football sandwich and apple helmet were made using dark german wheat bread, turkey, provolone cheese, 1 apple, Twizzler strings, and strawberry cream cheese.

We cut 2 pieces of bread into football shapes. Cut the turkey and cheese to fit and put on the inside. Cut the stripes and laces out of the cheese scraps and add on top of the football. Tilt the apple just a bit and cut off a small piece from the bottom so the apple will stay on the plate. Cut out part of the apple to resemble a helmet. Take a toothpick and poke 3 holes down each side of the cut out part of the apple. Pull off a few Twizzler strips and pinch off 3 pieces to go across that helmet. Pinch off 2 smaller pieces to go down the front of face mask. Poke the longer pieces into the holes…they will pop right in. We glued our shorter pieces on with strawberry cream cheese, but you could use regular, peanut butter, or whatever!

The boys loved it and we are ready for some football! GO FALCONS!

Such a cute idea, so creative!

Oh my goodness, that is FANTASTIC! Soooo creative with the helmet! L.O.V.E it! This would be perfect for a new weekly college football tailgate feature & link party that will run every Sat. throughout the fall. Would love to have you link them up! 🙂

Oh my! That helmet is the BEST! I host a new weekly meme called Thematic Thursday. Each week has a theme and accept any type of link-up that relates to the theme. This week's theme is Super Bowl – Football. I'd love to see you link this up! Looks like you might have a few other football posts too!

Thanks for linking so many! You should check out the Bento Blog Network that I run. While some people would say that your creations aren't a bento because they aren't in a box, I am the boss of the site and would love to have you link up if you ever have something that fits the weekly theme there. Upcoming themes are posted on the sidebar.
