Bento Slavink, Potato Croquette and Green Apple

Today's bento is Slavink, Potato Croquette and a Green Apple.
Let me talk a little about Slavink today. It's a traditional Dutch meat dish that I happen to like. It's made with mince meat, which is then wrapped around with bacon (which is not pre-smoked) and then baked or pan fried. Usually it can be found at the local butchers and big supermarket in the Netherlands. Mr Bear says it's an Albert Heijn thing because he didn't see Slavink being sold anywhere else other than Albert Heijn when he was a kid. Hmm but I really think its a local butcher thing because so many Dutch Deli meats can be found there and I swear I saw a couple of them sitting next to the sausages in the neighbourhood butcher!

Store bought Slavink is pretty easy to cook, just throw it onto the pan or in the oven, and wait for it to cook. Usually it is combined with potatoes and vegatables for a balanced meal. Since there is a random green apple sitting in the fridge, I decided to use it in this bento box as well.
