Make a Fun Sandwich to Celebrate Cinco de Mayo


Cinco de Mayo is a fun day to celebrate ... with dance ... crafts and food.  Whether you are of Mexican heritage or not, it's still a time to get in on some fun.  Let’s get ready for a Mexican Hat dance and celebrate Cinco de Mayo with this fun Boot sandwich. This sandwich is a sure hit to celebrate the day.  We included a pattern for the boot sandwich parts.   Although this is not a difficult sandwich to make the angles need to be cut right to resemble a boot.  Trust me.

For the Boot:

  • 4 slices dark brown bread
  • Orange pepper
  • Cucumber
  • Yellow pepper
  • Red pepper
  • Sandwich filling

Trace pattern onto paper, or photocopy, for boot sections and then cut out to use as templates.  Remove crusts from bread and then using 2 slices at a time, cut out boot pieces.  Make the heel from the orange pepper and cut the “spur chain” from yellow pepper.  To make the spur, first cut out a large circle from a red pepper slice.  Then, make “V” cuts to form the actual spur.

Cut a cucumber slice in two and use this to make the curved top of the boot.  Garnish plate with cucumber slices.  Yee Haw!
