Spotty Egg and Flower Carrot

The best thing about bento is that you can use the same food, and with a little of creativity, it creates completely different results. I used the beef puff, mini quiches, and mini money bags from last batch. I just reheat it whenever I need.

For my year 2 son, I prepared :
1. Beef puff with hatched chick on top (nori, cheese, carrot, hard boiled egg, and black sesame seed)
2. Mini money bags
3. "Tulip" sausage
4. Corn on the cob
5. Broccoli

For my kindy son, I prepared :
1. Mini quiche with flower carrot on top
2. Mini money bags
3. Sausages
4. Corn on the cob
5. Kiwi fruit

Here is the recipe for MINI QUICHES :


2 pcs store bought puff pastry, and use a glass to ‘punch’ out circular shapes to line the tin.
 4 eggs beaten
1 cup milk
1/2 cup greek yogurt
4 rashers of bacon, rind removed
1 brown onion finely chopped
1 cup grated cheese

Method :
1. Preheat oven at 180 degrees
2. Put the puff pastry cuts into muffin cases.
3. In a jug combine the eggs, milk, cream or yogurt and whisk to combine.
4. Fry the bacon and onion until starting to brown – divide the mix evenly into the muffin cases.
5. Pour the egg mixture over the top and sprinkle with cheese.
6. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden and puffed.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

Mini Quiches freeze very well.  Allow to cool to room temperature and seal in a zip lock bag for up to two weeks.  Defrost in the fridge, then pop them back in a hot oven for 5 minutes to crisp.
