Halloween Monster Sandwich


  • 2½–3 cups soy-flour blend
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 package (¼ ounce) fast-rising yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup warm water


  • ¼ cup soft silken tofu
  • ¼ cup low-fat ranch dressing
  • ¼ cup finely chopped onion
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic


  • 6 lettuce leaves
  • 6 ounces thinly sliced deli cooked ham
  • 6 ounces thinly sliced deli cooked roast beef
  • 6 ounces thinly sliced provolone cheese
  • 1 tomato, thinly sliced


  • 2 olives (eyes)
  • 2 thyme sprigs (antennae)
  • Sweet red pepper (mouth/fangs)
  • Carrot wedges (feet)
  • Cherry tomatoes (back)
  • Cucumber halves (back)
  1. Combine in large bowl, 2½ cups soy-flour blend with sugar, yeast and salt.
  2. Combine water and vegetable oil then add to flour mixture and blend well.
  3. Stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough.
  4. Knead on lightly floured surface until dough is smooth and elastic, about 3–5 minutes.
  5. Form a rounded, smooth dough ball. Cover; let rest for 30 minutes.
  6. Lightly shape risen dough into an S-shape to resemble a reptile, with one end having a tapering tail.
  7. Cover; let rise in warm place until doubled in size, about 20 minutes. Using kitchen shears, make a horizontal cut on the opposite end from the tail for the mouth. Lightly spray opening with vegetable spray and place an aluminum-foil ball in the mouth to keep it open. Cut notches in dough with shears to form scales.
  8. Lightly brush finished monster with egg wash (1 egg beat with 1 Tablespoon water). Bake at 375 F for 20–25 minutes or browned and done. Remove from oven; remove foil ball; let cool. Slice cooled bread with serrated knife horizontally.
  9. Blend tofu and ranch dressing until smooth. Add onion and garlic; mix well. Spread mixture onto sliced bread.
  10. Layer with lettuce, meat, cheese and tomatoes on bottom half of bread. Top with other half of bread. Decorate with vegetables and attach with wooden picks to create a Halloween Monster Sandwich. Slice to serve.
