Pig Lovers Bentos

These Bentos are for all the Pig Lovers out there.
Pigs have been my favorite animal (or one of my favorite animals) for my entire life. I had a pig obsession when I was younger, and my room was filled with everything pig (stuffed pigs, pig nicknacks, pig pictures, pig books, etc.).
Well recently my mom gave me a bottle of Pig Sprinkles, and I just knew I wanted to make a bento using them. So today when I was making Cheese Bread I decided to make Piggy Cheesy Bread and make a pig themed bento using some of my piggy bento boxes.
Here's my Fiance's Bento first.
 So Cute!!!!
Here's whats inside:
  • Piggy Cheesy Bread (w/ Nori accents)
  • Sweet Potato Tamagoyaki (w/ Spinach)
  • Apple 'Wings'
  • Vanilla Greek Yogurt (w/ Pig Apple + Pig Sprinkles)
  • Grapes (w/ Pig food pick)
 Here's a close up of the Piggy Bread. This was my first time using nori, and I didn't have any nori punches so I had to cut small pieces with scissors, and then I had a hard time getting it to stay in place. I will have to practice.
And here is a close up of the piggy yogurt. The sprinkles are the same shape as my piggy food cutter, so it tied in the sprinkles and the apple pig well.

Next up is My bento. I had snacked on a piggy bread already, and I ate some apple and the ends of the tamagoyaki while I was cooking so I didn't want to make myself a huge bento.
 Aww, I just love the piggy breads!
  • Apple (w/ Pig cut out, filled w/ Vanilla Greek Yogurt + Pig Sprinkles)
  • Grapes (w/ Pig food pick)
  • Sweet Potato Tamagoyaki (w/ Spinach)
  • Piggy Cheesy Bread (w/ Nori accents)
 It looks like a lot of grapes, but it was really only 1/4 of a cup. They were small grapes and I used them to help fill in the spaces of the bento.
 So Cute! I can't wait to make more of this delicious bread. And now that I know it makes cute pig faces, I can make these again.
And here is the bottle of Pig Sprinkles my mom gave me. Isn't that cool?


  1. Omggggg! That cheesey bread is SOOOO good! And I giggled cuz the apples look like ears to me =P Soooo cute!

    1. Yes that bread is amazing. I don't know why I didn't make it before now. And you are silly. The piggy would have huge ears. lol
