Christmas star sandwiches for Bento lunches

Equipment needed: one large and one small star cutter. 


White Bread

Primula Cheese of choice

Chives – finely chopped

Red Chillies – finely chopped

Cucumber, cut into ribbons


For each sandwich lightly toast two slices of bread. Spread Primula cheese on one slice and sprinkle with finely chopped chives or chillies. Cut a large star out of the second piece of toast and then a small star out of the centre. Place this prepared star on top of the first slice of prepared toast and recut with the large star cutter to make a star sandwich.

The method for the cucumber one is exactly the same except:

Spread one slice of toast with Primula cheese of choice and overlap with cucumber ribbons. Proceed as above to cut out the star sandwich.

Have fun making up lots more colourful toppings for your Christmas star sandwiches too!
