This one is a real pickle — it's extremely simple, and doesn't look spectacular, but packs a serious punch of flavor and deliciousness. You can easily upgrade or downgrade the recipe based on your liking, use different ingredients, but as long as you make ground meat under a blanket of mashed potatoes, it's gonna be fine ;-)
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!
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?!
