    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    These squiggly little sandwiches are almost too cute to eat, but budding entomologists gobble them up with enthusiasm! They look great on small rectangular plates and kids just love them. This is a great recipe for kids of all ages to help prepare. They take about 20 minutes to assemble….and minutes to devour.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Use a vegetable peeler to peel carrots, Use a sharp knife to cut carrot crosswise into fourths. Cut 1-inch matchstick pieces of carrot or pepper (you should have 48 sticks).
    2. 2
      Use a table knife to spread each tortilla with 2 tablespoons of the peanut butter or cream cheese and about 1 tablespoon of the jelly. Roll up tortillas to form spirals; press lightly to seal.
    3. 3
      Put the rolled tortillas on a cutting board. Cut each tortilla crosswise into five pieces.
    4. 4
      On each of the six plates, arrange five tortillas pieces side to side, in a wavy line, with cut side down to resemble a caterpillar. To make a caterpillar head put a tomato at the end and insert pieces of cheddar cheese in tomato for antennae. To make legs, arrange four carrot sticks on each side of caterpillar.

      What a wonderful idea! Admittedly, it did take a while to assemble, but that was more than half the fun anyway. I didn't think spinach with PBJ sounded very appetizing, especially for picky younger siblings, so I filled the tortillas with tuna salad and slices of mild farmer's cheese instead. I used raisins for eyes and halved baby carrots for legs; we also sliced green pepper and pretended it was "grass." Thanks again for the fun and creative lunch idea!

      Yummy! I ate everything but the tomato head because I don't like tomatoes. These are fun to make too!
