Quail Egg Christmas Tree for Lunchboxes

Quail Egg Christmas Tree for Lunchboxes

Would you like a small tree as an accent in a bento or on the side of your Christmas dinner? It's fun to make this with kids!

Ingredients

Quail egg
1
Wiener sausage
1
Sliced cheese
as needed
Ham
as needed
Imitation crab sticks
as needed
Food colouring (green)
2 spoonfuls of the spoon that comes with the packaging
Water
100 ml

Steps

1. Boil the quail egg, and remove the shell while it's still hot. Form a cone shape or a triangular pyramid by pressing with fingers or pressing onto a cutting board.
2. Dissolve food colouring in water, and soak the egg from Step 1 for about 30 minutes to colour.
3. Boil the wiener sausage, and cut into 1 cm lengths. Cut out the ham, cheese, and imitation crab sticks into small circles with a straw.
4. Insert a star shaped pick onto the egg, and secure the egg and wiener sausage with a pick. Decorate with ham, cheese, and imitation crab meat (you can use mayonnaise as glue).
