Graveyard Sandwich Tray

  • Yield 12 servings

An assortment of turkey, chicken and ham salad sandwiches, carved up like gravestones; this makes the perfect Halloween platter.


For Chicken and Turkey Sandwich Filling:
4 -- (5-ounces) cans chunk breast of chicken or turkey, drained
1/8 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
For Tuna Sandwich Filling:
4 -- (6-ounce) cans chunk light tuna in water, drained
1/8 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
For Ham Sandwich Filling:
4 -- (5-ounce) cans chunk lean ham in water, drained and chopped
1/8 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
For Sandwiches and Tray:
24 slices white sandwich bread
1 head lettuce, finely shredded


  1. To make any of the sandwich fillings break the canned chicken, turkey, tuna or ham into flakes in a mixing bowl. Add the seasoning and mayonnaise and mix to combine. Note: The amount of each sandwich filling is enough to make 12 sandwiches. Trim the bread slices into tombstone shapes. Toast in a toaster oven until the bread has browned. Divide the filling between half of the toasted bread slices and spread evenly.
  2. Assemble into sandwiches with the remaining toasted bread slices. Decorate each sandwich with “R.I.P.” or skull and crossbones with ketchup or mustard in squirt bottles.
  3. To serve: Arrange shredded lettuce on a large tray and set the sandwiches on the end in the field of lettuce-like tombstones in a graveyard.
