A clever way to serve an ordinary sandwich.
- 1 Loaf Rhodes™ Bread Dough, thawed but still cold
- 1 egg, beaten
- aluminum foil
- Cut a 2-inch piece off the end of a loaf of dough and set aside. Stretch
and roll the rest of the loaf to about 17-inches, forming a narrow tail and
leaving a broad head. Pull this end into a long, flattened mouth.
- In the middle of the gator, cut two 3-inch lines horizontal to the body.
Cut in the middle of each line and pull each stump out to form legs. Now place
the gator body on a large sprayed baking sheet.
- With a small knife, slice the mouth open about 4-inches. To keep it open,
slide in a folded piece of aluminum foil. Roll up additional foil into log shapes
and insert between folded foil. Form an upturned ridge at the end of the nose.
- Divide remaining dough into 6 sections. Roll 2 sections into oval teardrops
for eyes. Poke 2 holes very close together in top of gator head and drop eyes
into the holes. For the feet, press 4 sections into triangles and cut toes.
Place feet under legs. With sharp scissors, clip jaw, back and sides of gator.
- Brush well with egg. Let rise for 15 minutes.
- Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes. After 10 minutes open oven and
gently press eyes together.
- Remove foil after gator has cooled completely.
