Bento #54 - A Garden Lunch with Tink

The challenge this week at Bento Challenge is Disney.  SO I decided to do one of my enduring favorites, Tinkerbell.  Now, mind you, I've never done a specific character for my bento before, so why in my mixed up mind, did I think doing a character as delicate as Tink would be a good idea?  Oh well, she could have come out worse I suppose!  So anyway, here is Tink checking out her flower garden:

On left:

Tinkerbell is made of bologna (skin), egg (hair), soy wrapper/mame nori (dress and shoes), spring roll wraps (wings) and black paste food coloring and a toothpick.. 

Steamed broccoli and carrot flowers on a bed of broccoli slaw.

On right:

Mini cheese quiches in pastry cup topped with a grape tomato slice. 
Hiding around the quiches are green and red grapes (you can see one peeking out at the top of the top flower).

Fairy Good Quiche


Refrigerated pie crust (or pop-tube cresent rolls)
1/2 cup grated cheese (your choice, these are cheddar)
2 eggs
2 Tbsp cream
Salt and Pepper to taste
(4-6 grape/cherry tomatoes - optional)

To Make:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Generously spray a minimuffin tin with non-stick spray. Make sure to spray the area connecting each cup together along with the cups themselves.

Cut a 2-3 inch flower shape out of the piecrust. (If using the cresent roll option you will need to form a square out of each triangle and pat out slightly before cutting.) Place each flower into a muffin cup, push the center in and against the walls of the pan,then flatten the petals around the edge of the cup.

Place approx 1 tsp grated cheese into the bottom of each shell.

In a bowl, combine eggs, salt, pepper and cream. Pour into pastry shell filling almost to the top. (I find using a gravy ladle makes it really easy to fill the cups.)

Sprinkle with 1 tsp of grated cheese and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown and slightly puffed. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.

Garnish top with grape/cherry tomato slice or leave plain.

Makes 10-12 bite size quiches.
