Slice the sausage in half, and make a cut into each like this.
Stir-fry the sausage bits in oil in a frying pan. Season with salt and pepper.
Use a nori punch to cut out the eyes and so forth. Stick the nori bits on the sausage to finish.
If you cut the sausage into 3 pieces and position the pieces horizontally on a pick, you'll have all three brothers lined up! Please refer to Leo's recipe for wiener sausage on a stick (Recipe ID: 863315).

Story Behind this Recipe
I thought these up when I was making a bento.
I don't have any special tips, but if you pan fry the sausage bits in a generous amount of oil for a while the "mouths" will open up bigger. Please vary the expressions on their faces by trying out different cooking times or with nori seaweed placement.
