I recently came across this adorable teddy bear toast via minieco.co.uk and loved the idea of making meal time a little bit more fun by turning food into cute characters! It’s a fun surprise for kids as an afternoon snack when they return from school and I think it’s just as fun for adults too! :)
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and in my opinion it’s never too early to start thinking of costumes or festivities! So I started thinking about Halloween food ideas and decided to turn the ever-so- popular avocado toast into…
Even though avocado can sometimes be a little hard to work with since it will start turning brown if left out too long, this doesn’t take too long to make and even if it does start browning, it actually kind of works for Frankie here!
A few notes on the ingredients/components in this recipe:
You can find dry toasted seaweed which I used for the hair at any Chinese, Japanese, or Korean grocery store such as 99 Ranch, Marukai, Nijiya, Mitsuwa, etc. My favorite seaweed is Korean seaweed- it has a great taste, I could eat piece after piece by itself or with plain rice!
For the olive eyes, I picked out the ones that were solid in the middle (the end pieces) which gives the Frankensteins more of a cute cartoon-y look. You can try using the ones that look like “O”s and also fill the centers with vegan cheese or nuts to give your Frankenstein a different look.
I don’t mind that my Frankenstein toast doesn’t have perfectly smooth green skin– it has some little lumps and bumps because I just smushed my avocado with the back of a spoon quickly and spread it on…I think that’s the beauty of Frankenstein, he doesn’t have to be perfect! (Keep smushing and smashing if you want a smoother consistency.)
Who knew toast was such a perfect blank canvas? There are so many fun possibilities and endless spread and topping combinations just waiting to be turned into some delicious and cute food. I hope you like this snack and I will be thinking of more Halloween food ideas to share with you the rest of this month!
