Meatballs and Tamagoyaki

I got these Chicken Meatballs the other day and I decided to try them out ion bento today. They are Teriyaki Ginger Chicken Meatballs with pineapple. They were really tasty, so expect to see them in the next few bentos.
  • Teriyaki Chicken Meatballs
  • Edamame
  • Pea and Carrot Tamagoyaki
  • Fresh Spinach
  • 1/2 Strawberry
  • Watermelon Hearts
  • Honeydew Flowers
  • Pineapple Chuncks
  • Grape Halves
My fiance has the same exact bento as me.
I used the little bone picks in the meatballs, I think it looks really cute! I also used the Balloon string picks in the grapes. I should have used a whole grape, but I had already cut them in half before using the picks. oh well.
This bento lunch was packed with protein with the meatballs, eggs, and edamame! So very yummy. I used egg beaters for the tamagoyaki, I like the texture and smoothness of the egg beaters, and it's really easy too. I also like the fact that it's less calories too.
I really packed the vegetables in to the tamagoyaki! It was a little difficult rolling the omelet because it was so full, but it turned out great, and I love it filled with vegetables. I also don't add sugar or anything to the egg like most tamagoyaki recipes call for. I don't want it to be sweet. Feel free to make it however you like and with whatever fillings you want.


  1. When I made tamagoyaki, I didn't add sugar either. Just seems a bit weird to me.

  2. Yeah, I don't like my eggs to be sweet. But to be fair, I've never actually tried it that way. Maybe one day I'll try it with sugar, but in the mean time I'll eat it savory because it tastes good that way.
