Also in this bento: fried shishito peppers (similar to padron peppers) and orange cherry tomatoes from Crescent Moon Farms, Toad In The Hole decorated with a few black sesame seeds, a sprig of purslane, radishes from Triple T Ranch, baby carrots, half of a Gravenstein Apple from Walker Apples, and two turkey patties (they are still frozen in this pic).
Beverage Pairing Suggestion: Since I usually call this dish Toad In The Hole, a glass of Toad Hollow Vineyard wine is a perfect match! Toad Hollow makes a stainless steel Chardonnay that is crisp and great with fried foods, like the fried peppers and Toad In The Hole. It will also work well with the turkey patties (after they thaw out!), and its crisp flavor and nice acidity should balance well with the fruits and veggies.
Haha I used to get so confused when I first moved to the US by people calling this toad in the hole. Where's the sausage? lolReplyDelete
Such a cute little egg basket and beautifully colored bento.
It looks good! I never thought to use it in a bento. I don't think I've really made Toad in the hole. I've heard of both versions.ReplyDelete
I've had a stainless steel Chardonnay at a winery in northern Michigan and really liked the crisp flavor and enjoyed it! Wow, it's so nice you have a wine pairing with your bentos! Hehe! but then you are in Sonoma!
Thanks Kelly! I didn't even know about the sausage version, because I have always called it Toad In The Hole. Do you say boot or trunk? Ha ha! Thanks for stopping by today!ReplyDelete
Hi Lyndsey! I don't always remember to do wine pairings, but there are so many great wineries here in Sonoma County that it makes sense to do pairings. And the pairings are recommendations for adults, not kids, obviously! :)ReplyDelete
Gorgeous bento! I love the play of tastes, textures and forms...the combo of fried shishito peppers and golden "toad in the hole" is mouth-watering!ReplyDelete
Thanks bentobird! I think this one did turn out pretty cool visually, a lot of circles and spheres although I didn't plan it that way. And it was yummy: bonus!ReplyDelete
I only heard of Toad in the Hole when on the east coast! Do they call it that here too? Yours is adorable. I love the freshness and color in this bento and I bet you loved it! Superb!ReplyDelete
Hi sheri! It was really tasty. And look: another way to use quail eggs! Ha ha!ReplyDelete
Definitely boot! :bReplyDelete
Love that egg in a basket, such a great idea for bento! And as usual, the colour of your bento us superb!ReplyDelete
Great color combi bento!ReplyDelete
I've never eaten those little radishes and always wonder how they taste like? Do you eat them raw or boil them????
what a great bento! I want to eat it right now!!! ;D That "egg in a basket"-thing I also know with bell pepper. Just cut the bell pepper in a ring-shape and fry your egg inside of it. I like the idea with the bread, too. have to try it out, too! :D Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Beautiful and fresh bento! I never heard Tode in the Hole before ... But now I knew, thanks to you. The triangle shape looks like onigiri, so can we call it onigiri bread too? hehehe :)ReplyDelete
Gimme that toad in the hole please... (but not a real toad, LOL). Love the whole presentation of this bento SB, the color combination is just lovely :D. Oh, my hands are itchy to pink up some of those cute little tomatoes and put them on mine ^^vReplyDelete
Thanks Kids Dream Work! The background paper makes it look really colorful, too. :)ReplyDelete
Hi Angeleyes! I got these radishes at the farmers market, and I like to eat them raw. Sometimes I sprinkle a little salt on them.ReplyDelete
Hallo Token! Vielen Dank! I'll have to try that out with a pepper ring, sounds fun.ReplyDelete
Lia, it already has a few names, so why not!? Onigiri Bread it is! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks tatabonita! I just loved your egg and bread bentos, and look: this is egg INSIDE of bread! :)ReplyDelete
Looks sooo tasty! you have an awesome blog.ReplyDelete
Thanks Kaitlyn! I hope you like the seasonal slant I have on bentos. Thanks so much for following my blog!ReplyDelete
