A very cute dish that your kid will love! This is also great for younger children who are not quite ready to eat solid food. For the sausage, I used a fish & meat sausage commonly found in Japanese supermarkets but you can use a normal meat sausage if you can’t find the fish & meat sausage. For the shimeji mushrooms, you may choose to use any other round and dark coloured food (like beans) instead as they are quite difficult to find in non-Japanese supermarkets.
