Triangular Sambos Bento


Sambo is actually an Irish and Australian slang for sandwich.
I really like how the sambo/sandwich turns out. I cut the sandwich with corrugated knife. The fillings for the sandwich are ham, cheese, lettuce, and tomato ketchup.


So the boys had similar lunches. For each box, contains :
1. Ham and cheese sambos
2. Mini arancini ball (recipe here
3. Homemade chicken nuggets (recipe here) with BBQ sauce
4. Red seedless grapes for recess

Leek and Bacon Quiche Bento


Our family loves quiche. It is very tasty and super easy to make. Here I share you the recipe :

Leek and Bacon Quiche 

Ingredients:

400 grams Sliced button mushrooms
1 small onion, diced
1 leek, sliced
2 rashers of bacon, diced
4-5 eggs
½ cup of milk
Salt & pepper to taste
3 sheets frozen puff pastry
½ cup grated tasty cheese

Method:
1. Thaw pastry and preheat oven to 210 degrees. 
2. Lightly grease with spray oil a 12 cup muffin tin (standard size). 
3. Use a jar or cutter to cut out 4 circles from each thawed pastry sheet, large enough to line muffin cups. 
4. Alternatively, just cut the pastry square into equal quarters which will give the quiches a more rustic appearance. 
5. Once all muffin cups are lined with pastry, make a small cross in the bottom of each pastry cup with a bread knife, for even cooking.
6. Fry bacon, onion, leek and mushrooms until just cooked. 
7. Evenly divide mixture between all 12 cups. 
8. Combine eggs, milk and salt and pepper in a jug and whisk together. 
9. Pour egg mixture evenly between all 12 cups and top with grated cheese.
10. Cook in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until pastry browned and cheese melted.
