It is a Special time in my Kitchen, when the Grand children come for a stay-over. Pop Pop and I look forward to it as much as they do. No matter what we have planned for them to do, while they are there, we always make time in the kitchen to make sandwiches together. We call them; " M~E " sandwhichies.
I have an apron for each of them to wear. I provide a space at the counter or the table for each of them a work space. We delight in watching their creations come to life. Each is a Blessing to us. What a memory we make working together in "Gam-maws Kitchen."

How to Make Gam-maws " M~E " Sandwichies


  1. First Step}
    Have ready a lg. cookie sheet, flat skillet, spatula, and paper plates.And a case knife for cutting.And a box or bag of people shaped cookie cutters.
  2. Second Step}
    Lay 2 slices of bread, 2 slices luncheon meat, 2 slices cheese in front of each child.Pass the bag or box of cookie cutters around for each child to choose a cutter. They might want to use the same one twice. Give each child a case knife.
  3. Step 3|
    Lay the cookie cutter on each slice of bread and press down to make print. With the knife help them to cut the unused bread away from the cutter. Follow the same process with the cheese and meat, until each child has 2 complette bodie portions.
  4. Step 4}
    Carefully spread one side of each bread body with a thin layer of margarine. Lay the buttered sides on top of each other w/buttered side touching on the inside. This will be less messy.
  5. Step5}
    Follow same proceedure with cutter over the meat and cheese.(You might want to go ahead and lay them a top each other, before cutting out.
    In a skillet or flat skillet, turn on low to medium heat. Carefully let each child, one at a time, lay his buttered side of bread body onto the skillet. Lay the body shaped cheesy meat onto the bread and top with the other buttered bread. 2 sandwiches can cook at the same time.
  6. Allow at least 3 to 4 minutes, beore flipping to the other side with spatula. I help the child hold the spatula as they carefully turn it over. Let toast to slightly brown on each side, before removing onto their paper plate.
  7. This can be so much fun for the child and you. Even Pop Pop helps with the grandsons. After each has their sandwichies made, we add pickles and chips to the plates. And a cold glass of flavored milk or plain. We wait till all is cooked and on the table before we say grace and then eat. It is time consuming, but oh the memories you make with them is worth every minute. And shall be passed through generations to come.
  8. You can also make up a small basket for each child a head of time. Put a tiny clear cilendar with margarine already in it and top it w/ a lid. Have them a plastic colored knife for cutting, an empty zip-lock baggie for the extra b read pieces to later feed the ducks with, their apron and a wash cloth or paper towel to keep their hands wiped on.
    Grand-parents, don't forget the camera!!! Have fun and enjoy~
