Bento #201 - Egg Dumpling

In my previous White Mouse and Sausage Mouse Bento post, I promised to show you what kind of sandwich cutter I use to prepare the triangular sandwich. I carried out my promise but I think it would be good if I show you few options to prepare sandwich.

OPTION 1: Dumpling Gadget

This is a new gadget for me, just bought last weekend. Instead of using the common sandwich cutter (common as in to all bento mama), you can use this cool little dumpling gadget. I think pictures below has clearly explained how it is used to make "egg dumpling". Isn't the outcome out of the blue? It's unexpectedly cute and the size is just nice for Isaac.

OPTION 2: All in One Triangular Sandwich Cutter

I call this "All in One" cutter as the sealer and cutter are in in one. After putting the filling, just turn the cutter to the other side, press hard and the bread will be sealed at cut at one time. It's it cool? If you can find bigger bread that can make two sandwiches would be better, so that no waste of food.

OPTION 3: Square Sandwich Cutter

This is my first sandwich cutter. At first find it useful, but after few times getting not in good shape bread, I think this cutter is slightly too big. The sandwich cannot be sealed properly, I have actually keep it aside. But today took it out just to snap some photos for you (wah... like very sacrifice... kekekek).

So, which sandwich you perfer? The three egg dumpling I packed into Isaac's bento, the other two for me & my hubby.
