I've posted this in the recipes section over at my Harry Potter Crafts group at yahoo groups.. but I thought maybe some of you that aren't members there might like to see it too.
Last halloween, for our office lunch, in addition to the finger sandwiches I posted earlier.. I made a "basilisk" sandwich.
I bought frozen bread dough and thawed a couple of loaves in an olied ziplock bag (I figured a two loaf snake was as big as my oven would hold).. once it was pliable, I shaped it and put it on a baking sheet to rise (followed package directions, pretty much). Then baked..
I sliced the "snake" crossways and filled with lettuce, tomato and store bought chicken salad. I made his eyes with a couple of olive slices.
Everyone enjoyed it.
