How to Make a Bento Box Sealed Sandwich

  • Use this technique for the panda, bunny, cat and sheep bentos.

    1. Put a glass, jar or biscuit cutter on piece bread (open side down) but don't put pressure on it yet.

  • 2. Cut the bread about 1/4 inch from the glass.
  • 3. Gently tear away the crusts, leaving the bread and border. Use the crusts to make a delicious snack.
  • 4. Do the same on the other piece of bread.
  • 5. Put the sandwich filling onto the bread. (Here egg and mayo is used, but you can put in anything: peanut butter and jelly, tuna salad, ham and cheese, pasta -- anything your kid likes).
  • 6. Cover it with the other slice of bread.
  • 7. Gently put pressure on the glass to seal the two halves together. (Don't put too much pressure, or it'll cut the bread!)
  • 8. You can use the sealed sandwich in the cat, panda, or bunny bentos.
  • 9. Slice open the sealed bento to serve immediately or leave whole and decorate for a bento lunch box.
