Animal Palz Pocket Sandwich

LT had a class party on his last day of school last week. It also marks the end of his kindergarten, as he will be moving on to primary school next year. It was a potluck party and the kids were asked to bring along food to share.

I decided to pack mini bentos for LT and his friends. I woke up early that day to get these ready.

Thanks to my Animal Palz, it was a breeze making these cute pocket sandwiches.

I added in some fried chicken for the kids too. LT insisted everyone gets a panda pocket sandwich, as it's his favourite in the set.

I had quite a lot of leftover bread after making the pocket sandwiches, so I made breadcrumbs with them. I am sharing the recipe at the end of this post.

I often get questions asking me what I do with leftover bento food cut outs, I actually wrote a post 2 years back on what I do with them. You can check out the post HERE. I will try to update that post with more recipes for leftover bread in future.

I made a pork cutlet using my homemade breadcrumbs last week. :)


Slices of stale bread, bread trimmings and/or bread crusts.

  1. Cut your bread into thin strips. 
  2. Lay them on an oven tray and toast at 130 degrees celsius for around 15 minutes, or till the bread are dry. Do not brown them.
  3. Grind them in a blender till fine.
  4. When they are completely cool, you can store them in a zip lock bag in the fridge. You can store them in the freezer if you want to keep them longer.
