Breakfast Leftovers Bento Lunch

Sharing is caring!

This Breakfast Leftovers Bento Box is a fun treat for the kids! If your kids are like mine, they need variety in their lunch.  They don’t want to eat at school but they don’t want just a sandwich in their lunch bag either.  By thinking outside the box a little bit, you can have your kids loving and eating everything you send with them. Be sure to check out my Bento Lunch Ideas for Kids for even more great recipe ideas.

This week I put together a super easy breakfast leftovers lunch for you.  Everyone loves breakfast and it seems like we always have a little bit leftover at our house.  We have breakfast for dinner often so why not have breakfast for lunch? The kids will love this Breakfast bento box.

Making a breakfast leftovers lunch is as easy as packing up your leftovers from breakfast!  Does it get any easier than that?  I don’t think so!  Find my step by step instructions below.

Boxed Lunch Ingredients:

You can find a printable recipe with instructions and ingredients below, but I like to show the ingredients list with (affiliate) links to help you see what we used for this box.

  • French Toast
  • Syrup
  • Sausages
  • Yogurt or Fruit

We may not have included all ingredients above, like pantry staples. So be sure to reference the entire recipe card below!

How far in advance can you make a bento lunch?

Since you’re using the leftovers that you have, you’ll be able to make it after that. I also think that you can meal prep a day out or so to put you ahead of the game.

You can always do certain steps ahead of time to save time later down the road. Chopping and washing the fresh fruit and having it ready to add to the bento box is a great idea as well.

Important Tips for this Bento Box Idea:

A big thing to remember if you’re adding fresh fruit to any bento box is that you need to be sure to have it separated from other parts and areas of food. You don’t want the fresh fruit juice soaking into your other food items or it could cause a big soggy mess.

Dried fruit is also a great food item to add to bento boxes as well! Don’t forget the nuts!
