5 recipes with Fruit jam, Mirin, and Sausages

Tuna and egg bento

The bare tuna-paste bento was a great success, but with the arrival of my new bento container, I was left with some extra unused space. I decided to fill the space with easy to make and very tasty iri tamago, which is basically a Japanese kind of scrambled eggs! You can definitely use iri tamago in onigiri, or as a small side dish.

Deluxe bento idea

This idea mixes the basic sausage bento idea with previously mentioned teriyaki smoked salmon don for a more premium feel of the bento, without adding any more trouble while making the bento.

Leftover breakfast

One feature of making bento for lunch is that you're always left with some leftover rice and toppings. Why not using them to make a healthy and tasty breakfast?

Teriyaki sausages and rice bento

Sausages are a huge part of my bento making — they are easy to prepare, ridiculously delicious and so straightforward to store that I just like to toss some of them into any of my bento!

This particular recipe has a teriyaki twist, thanks to cooking the sausages in water with teriyaki sauce. Yum!

Sausage salad bento idea

Bento is not only rice, and you can eat a delicious meal with other ingredients like potatoes, green beans and... cornichons! This is my bento idea for days when I literally cannot look at rice, e.g. the day after sushi day. And, because most of the ingredients are pre-made in jars, you can quickly assemble this set when you're short on time. What's not to love about this bento idea?!
