爱。开心便当のGingerbread Man Charcoal Sandwich

Made this bento last week for my 2nd X’mas theme bento.  I bought a chacoal bun at the bakery shop when I went to help my mum at her shop.  I had never eat charcoal bread before, but never try never know who it taste, so I bought one to taste. 🙂

I cut the the charcoal bun into half and put in some chicken ham slices, tomato slices and lettuce in to the bun to became a chicken sandwich.  I pan fried two pieces of chicken nuggets and used a gingerbread man cutter to cut them into two small gingerbread men.  After that, used nori to decorated their details. 

The charcol bun is taste just like the normal butter bun, a bit sweet and surprisingly it is so soft….hehe.  Perfect for making sandwich too. The bun is slightly big in size, so I cut it into half to make two sandwiches.  As you can see from the photo, I just put in one sandwich in the bento.  The other half reserved for tea time…my sons not willing to take the try…they said the bun is black color, not nice.😦

Other goodies in the bento: grapes, blueberries, cherry tomatoes and Nanfeng tangerine.

Today is Wednesday again, so will link this post to What for lunch, Wendesday at Shannon’s post later…heheh…too early for me to link now. ;)  Wish all of you have a happy day.

    What is charcoal bread made of? Looks very cool! If it were chocolate I bet they would be begging to eat it🙂

      Thanks, Sheri.🙂
      It made of fine bamboo charcoal powder and normal bread ingredients. This type of bread starts to popular in Malaysia now. Some acticles say it can help detoxifiying, help digestion and have some health functions too. But, I am not sure all these are true or not…hehe.
      Yeah…if it were chocolate bag..then sure they were “fight” to get it..hehe.

  3. Interesting on the charcoal bread. Maybe it is made from a darker flour? Sometimes the color might throw eaters off, if it is not what they are used to I suppose. Maybe seeing you will encourage them next time?
