It can be stressful hosting a party, especially when it comes to the food. We either have no time to cook anything, are too lazy to attempt to cook anything, or are just completely frustrated by the fact that everything we touch burns. Don’t worry, no matter what your reason is there is a solution for you, and no, it doesn’t involve ordering out. Make them sandwiches, but not just any old basic sandwiches – make these caterpillar sandwiches.

With this recipe, you take the simple, easy basic sandwich and elevate it with your imagination and creativity. You can impress your guests with a meal too cute to eat without even turning on the oven.
