Crispy Ham & Cheese Roll-ups
Instead of the classic ham & cheese sandwiches that your kids are used to, give it a little twist: make ‘em crunchy! What you’ll need are the usual ingredients you use to make ham & cheese sandwich, plus, egg wash and bread crumbs.
Flatten each slice of bread with a rolling pin then brush each side with butter.
Lay down the cheese slice, then the ham. Roll them tightly.
Dip each roll-up in the egg wash then immediately cover them with panko bread crumbs.
Secure each roll-up with a toothpick. Then deep fry.
1 to 2 pieces may already be enough to fit the biggest compartment, but you may also slice them into half so they’re easier to handle. You can even replace the ham with bacon for other days!
Maybe not all kids are fond of fruits. But may these can help you do the trick.
Cut up the barbecue sticks in a size that’ll make them fit a bento box compartment. (You may also use toothpicks if you prefer.)
Choose 2-3 kinds of fresh fruits that you think your kid will like. Slice them into small cubes or little pieces to make them like mini fruit kebabs.
In the smallest compartment, put chocolate syrup, caramel, or melted white chocolate as dip for the fruits. You may also add breadsticks, cookies, or marshmallows so they’ll enjoy with the fondue-like dessert.
*Next time do this for veggies too!
Mini Egg Surprise
Meatballs are definitely an all-time kids favorite. Make them more fun and healthy by using this recipe:
Prepare your usual meatball mixture.
Boil some quail eggs. Once cooked and cooled for you to handle, peel them.
Now roll each meatball but this time with a quail egg inside.
Roll them in bread crumbs, then deep fry.
Make sure to dry them with a paper towel before putting inside the bento box to avoid them getting soggy.
