In this lunch Small Child had some cheesy bread bites, which I made with the help of the Cube It cutter from a little left-over dough when I was making a batch of bread recently (more details below). He also had a raw carrot cut into bite-size pieces using the Cube It cutter, cucumber, also cut up with the cutter, and a hard boiled egg cat. He had some garlic and onion dip in the built-in dip container in this lunch box, and the lunch was finished with a couple of his favourite cat picks.
For dessert he had a tub of organic plum yoghurt topped with a frozen vanilla yoghurt frog, a peeled and sliced kiwi topped with a cute mouse pick, some blueberries topped with a cat pick, and a couple of mini organic oat biscuits.
I found the Cube It cutter really useful for cutting the food for this lunch into neat bite-size pieces. It was particularly great for the cheesy dough bites, here’s how I made them:
I rolled the bread dough out into a fairly flat piece about 1cm thick, and used the Cube It cutter to cut it into mini squares. I placed the bread dough bites on an oiled baking tray and covered it loosely to rise a little.
Once they were ready to bake, I brushed them with a little olive oil and sprinkled them with finely grated cheddar. I baked them for about 5-10 minutes in a hot oven, checking regularly to ensure they weren’t burning. They were particularly delicious warm, but Small Child also enjoyed them cold in his lunchbox.
I’ll definitely be making some more of them next time I make a batch of bread!
