I was so excited to make these sandwiches.
I got this panda sandwich kit a few weeks ago, and I hadn’t had time to try until yesterday.
This is how the whole face looks.
Isn’t it adorable?!
These are pretty easy to make, and I was quite surprised at how clearly you can stamp the facial features.
These are jam sandwiches (lingonberries and tropical fruit), but you can basically add anything that is not too wet.
Ham and cheese, cheddar cheese and mango chutney, cream cheese and herbs, peanut butter and fruit… possible variations are endless.
In the other layer of this Bendo box were potato salad and Buffalo cauliflower.
I usually don’t, but this time I wanted to put in as many vegetables as possible so I added carrots and onions to my potato salad.
Well, when I think of it, my mom used to add these veggies to her potato salad, too.
I’ve made Baffallo cauliflower before, but this time I succeeded in making them vegan.
These are so good that even I would want a glass of beer to wash them down (lol)!
Panda Sandwich Bento
Panda sandwiches (I used this kit)
– white and whole wheat bread slices
– jam, or other fillings
Baffalo cauliflower (I used this recipe, but used corn starch instead of eggs)
– dressing (white vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, mustard)
With Terry’s suggestion, I toasted some of these Panda sandwiches with cheese inside.
They turned out pretty good as they kept the facial features well, but you do get some brown spots on the face. I do like the toasted crusty bread, but the “burned” spots may make some kids not too happy.
