You’ve already seen what it looks like in the image below and following that is what it will take to make this curious culinary creation!


2 slices ½-inch-thick white bread
1 oz. Gorgonzola cheese
2 tbsp. mayonnaise
1 tbsp. butter
1 fig
1 black olive
1 pine nut to garnish

For the body

1. Clear the work surface of any Upside Down ooze.

2. Cut 2 slices of bread to resemble the body of the Demogorgon.

3. Carefully spread the Gorgonzola on one of the cut slices, and place the other slice of bread on top.

4. Spread mayonnaise on both pieces of bread (this is key to a golden, delectable crunch).

5. Heat a small skillet (nonstick, ideally) over medium.

6. Slide in half of the butter. When it melts, add the sandwich to the pan, and heat for 4 minutes until golden brown; add the remaining butter and flip.

For the head

1. Score the fig into quarters, without slicing right through. Fan open.

2. Cut one thick slice of black olive, and place in center of fig.

3. Cut the pine nut into small shards, and garnish the olive to resemble teeth.

4. Place head at top of sandwich neck to serve.

5. Once complete, serve and enjoy quickly. Then scram before the lights start blinking and things get messy.
