Pizza Biscuits & Peanuts Bento for Ben

Earlier was a Hoppy-themed bento from taekwondo last night, today was time for another "Peanut" themed bento for Mr. Ben, featuring his favorite little elephants.

Someone posted the idea for individual pizza cups on one of my online forums and it was one of those ideas that you could just see the bento potential in! They were so simple too--flattened biscuits, tucked into muffin cups, topped with a teaspoon of tomato sauce, a bit of shredded cheese and (in my case today), crumbled bacon. We didn't have pepperoni on hand, but I had bacon leftover, so that works too!

Ben had two of the pizza biscuits, with his Peanut picks to decorate, celery & carrot sticks, a few pretzels, a mini muffin that I think was blueberry and butterscotch chip, and mixed berries (strawberry, blueberry and blackberry, again with a Peanut pick). Both kids loved the pizza biscuits, so I see making them again.

  2. Use silicone muffin cups if you have them. The biscuits popped out perfectly and they were much easier to clean than a muffin tray.

  9. We did them both ways, warm and room temp. I personally preferred them warm, but the kids didn't seem to mind either way.
