Steamed bun bento for toddler

Steamed bun bento for toddler


Having sent my husband off with the speed bento, next came my son’s lunch.

Steamed bun bento for toddler

Chinese steamed bun, orange grape tomatoes, octo-dogs, over-easy fried quail’s egg (on its side), and blueberries. And of course, my son rejected the cute quail’s egg (but devoured the octodogs, as usual)!

Tip: When frying quail eggs, don’t try to break them along the middle with your fingers like you would a chicken egg. The membrane is quite thick and you’ll end up with broken yolk. Open it more like a soft-boiled egg: tap around the end with a sharp knife and peel off the small cap of shell. Turn the egg upside down and shake it out of the opening you’ve created.
