Bento Mania #27

If you think the checkered apple is tedious, you should try making this sunflower sausage (just simply name them. 😳 ). This is how you do it:

Step one is like this…

The pressure you put on the knife while cutting has to be even. If not, you will get this result:

Can you imagine how frustrated I am when out of 12 pcs of frankfurt only one is perfect? The rest kept on breaking when I curl them. Step 2 should look like this:

Fasten both end with toothpick.

Step 3 – Heat a little olive oil in frying pan. Brown one side of the sausage, flip them over and break a quail egg on the centre. Reduce flame if you want a well-done egg. The finishing product looks like this:

Using a fork (in my case, I used my hand!), remove gently the excessed egg at the surrounding.

The Princess bento. I filled up the empty space with a cup of cornflakes.

This is how I shaped the rice.

Sprinkle a little furikake on the top or dab all over the rice.

The Prince bento looks like this (without the cornflakes as everything fit in nicely):

The sunflower sausage is a bit cacat because it is faulty. On the right is sun-dried pineapple. They are very delicious! Wuching courier them to me all the way from Melbourne.

Itu je. Too lazy to have lengthy post today. Maybe I will experiment with Weiner the next time. The frankfurter seems to be a bit soft and too fragile.

    The sunflower sausage looks good….i don’t think it is cacat, as long as it is created with a load of LOVE 🙂

    Where do you get the patience to do this? But it’s really nice….do your kids know what to expect each time or each one is a surprise?

    Hey, thanx for posting the step-by-step how to make the sunflower sausage. When I read in others blogger’s blog, I kept wondering how to do this. Ah… finally I know now and I am going to do it for my kids this coming weekend. It is just so lovely.

    fun concept.. not a huge hotdog fan but once and a while they can be fun.. i think this would be even a touch more appealing to me if it was perched up on a nice peice of toast with some ‘stuff’ on it!

    take care and keep making wonderful things!

    Haha, that’s so cute. How creative. I love the egg in the middle too. I’d love to find that in my bento box!
