Flower-Shaped Wiener Sausages to Decorate Your Bento

You can make a flower-shaped sausage different from your usual type with just a few simple cuts. Don't be surprised by how easy it is!

Ingredients: 1 serving

Wiener sausage
1 or as many as you like

Steps

1. Cut slits vertically into the wiener about 1/4 of the way deep. Make 4 slits (or as many as you want).
2. Boil the wieners.
3. They should look like this when done boiling.
4. Slice the sausages into desired thicknesses.
5. These are wiener flowers with (clockwise from top left) 6 slits, 10 slits, 5 slits, and 4 slits.
6. Example: Use a straw to punch out small circles of cheese or fish sausage and place them in the center of the wiener. This one has 4 slits.
7. Example: Place a cheese flower in the center of the wiener. This one has 5 slits.
8. For reference: See Recipe ID: 683899. Make cute striped hearts out of cheese. Put them together to make a bow. Try decorating your characters.
9. For reference: Place a 5-slit wiener in the center of a wiener cut into flower petals to create the center section of a flower.
