Here’s another baon idea take away: Frabelle’s fish nuggets!
I normally make my own fish nuggets from scratch using cream dory drenched in my very own recipe of breading mix but, today is an exception since I discovered Frabelle’s Captain’s Catch Fish Nuggets.
The Frabelle’s fish nuggets are coated with crispy golden breading and it’s pre-fried to seal in the taste. If you are on the go this one is perfect for your kid’s baon! It comes with a free barbeque sauce to enjoy!
Onigiri, is a Japanese comfort food made from rice formed into triangular or oval shapes and usually wrapped in nori (seaweed). If you watched Spirited Away it’s the food that Haru gave to Chichiro in the movie to “comfort” her — too bad it doesn’t have hotdog inside.
We are hotdog lovers!
My 2 younger children love hotdog, if given the chance they would like to have it everyday for breakfast, lunch and dinner. No kidding!
This onigiri meal is very easy to make, but first off you need an onigiri mold —I got mine in a Japanese store in Trinoma.
Put the rice and the hotdog together inside the mold and you are ready to make your kid happy in school.
We switched hotdog brands a long time ago. My husband and I discovered Frabelle hotdogs during a free food taste in one of the supermarkets we frequent. We instantly fell in love with its natural smoky flavor that we keep it our grocery list for good. Compare to our old hotdog brand, Frabelle is more affordable. If you compare its size with all the other available hotdog brands in the supermarket you will notice that it’s a lot bigger; and when cooked Frabelle hotdogs doesn’t wrinkle.
But what I like most about it is it’s made with high percentage of real meat that’s why it’s juicier and more flavorful compared to others.
