This is my son's favorite dinner, so with all those leftover hard boiled eggs..... it is no wonder that we had egg salad sandwiches! I first saw this idea in Martha Stewart's Kids magazine, but ended up making my own version of egg salad and just using her idea as a template for the faces.
The makings for the faces- sliced olives, bell peppers, grape tomatoes, sliced baby dill pickles, sliced egg "eyes", peas, carrot coins, shredded lettuce and whatever else you want.
Some people in my family like their bread toasted, others do not
Then put on the eyes, shown here without yolks

A few additions, tuna and red onion, give this version a little more kick

Put eggs in a single layer on the bottom of a medium saucepan. Fill with cool water at least 1-inch above the eggs. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. As soon as water boils, turn off heat, cover and let stand for 10 minutes. Run eggs under cold water until completely cooled and peel.
