Having a teddy bear party or picnic? These kid-friendly sandwiches are a “bear” necessity!
Updated July 5, 2006

Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound unsliced bologna, finely chopped (3 cups)
  • 6 ounces American cheese, cut into 1/4-inch cubes (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/3 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 4 large honey-wheat steak or sandwich buns (4 1/2 inches each), split
  • 16 small wheat turkey buns (3 inches each), split
  • 20 small leaf lettuce leaves
  • 1 pitted ripe olive, cut in half
  • 1 piece red bell pepper

Steps

  • 1
    Mix bologna, cheese, relish and mayonnaise.
  • 2
    Line bottoms of large and small buns with lettuce. Spread with bologna mixture; add tops of buns. Cut 2 large buns in half. Cut 2 small buns in half.
  • 3
    Arrange whole large buns and bun halves for bear body and head on serving tray, as shown in photo. Add 4 small bun halves for ears and arms. Add 2 whole small buns for legs. Add olive halves for eyes and bell pepper for mouth. Arrange remaining sandwiches on separate platter to serve with bear.

  • Chopped fully cooked ham can be used instead of the bologna, and iceberg lettuce can be used instead of the leaf lettuce.
  • Turkey buns are sometimes called silver dollar buns. They make a perfect match for small hands.
