Lunch Box Wednesday #8 – Mountain Bread Parcels

This recipe started out as a dinner recipe, based on an idea in the Mountain Bread Recipe Book.  But after having the left overs for lunch I realised they made a good lunch box idea.  I also froze and thawed one as a test, just to make sure.  Even better, they are great for using up left overs, I used left over gyoza filling in these.

Low Chemical / FAILSAFE depending on the fillings.

Any leftover meat or vegetables can be used as a filling, either finely chopped or mashed. If making fillings from scratch you might like to try:

If you are on the elimination diet or avoiding amines and want to use these in lunch boxes; make the parcels as soon as the fillings have cooled down.  Once the parcels are cooked let them cool and place in the freezer straight away.  Allow to thaw in the lunch box.

It takes less than 15 minutes to 6 of these once the fillings are ready.
