Bento for IT, in the box are salmon bread cups, prawn paste wings, sausage, golden kiwis and strawberries.
Bento for LT, same food as above. 5 petals flowers and sausage boy idea taken off Kaerenmama's blog. :)
Bento for IT's recess, salmon bread cup, sausage and grapes.
I think the temperature in my oven is uneven. :( The 5 bread cups were baked at the same time, but 2 of them are a little burnt. :(
Lunch for me, in the box are mee goreng, prawn paste wings and salad.
I still had some salmon left over after making their bentos, so I made myself some bread cups in the afternoon and took some step-by-step pictures. :)
First, find a round cutter that is slightly smaller than the aluminium cup you are using. You can also use muffin cups.
Use the other side(not the cutting side) to make an imprint on the center of the bread.
With the same cutter, make another 4 imprints like the ones shown in the picture.
Cut along the outlines.
Fit it into the aluminium cup.
Or if you prefer a 5 petals bread cup, you can use another slightly smaller round cutter to make the imprints.
Use the bigger cutter to make the circle imprint in the middle, and the smaller one to do the petals.
Cutting them out makes nicer bread cups but you do have the problem of having leftover bread to deal with. So, if you do not like that, you can always just cut four slits at each corner and fold them into the cup. Next, bake the bread for around 8 mins at 180 degrees.
Then, take the cups out and fill them in with whatever you like. I'm using salmon here. I steamed the salmon with a sprinkle of salt. Then, I flake them and mix with mayo and black pepper.
Top with cheese, and return to the oven and bake till the cheese melts.
And there, it's done. :)
