This is a great bento for any Minnie fans. Here, in Japan, there are quite a lot of people in the cult of Minnie and Mickey.
Make this bento to show the world how deep your devotion is to this beloved cartoon character!
First, you have to gather all of your ingredients….
- soy sauce
- karaage (fried chicken, Japanese-style. Recipe here: http://norecipes.com/recipe/karaage-recipe/)
- a Japanese omelette (http://www.japanesecooking101.com/tamagoyaki-recipe/ …Or just a bit of scrambled eggs will do. The important this is to have different elements to your bento)
- a slice of ham
- cherry tomato
- carrot sliced, and boiled
- sliced cheese
Things you will need:
- A bento box – tupper ware also works
- A knife
- chopping board
- scissors (that you can use for food)
- tooth picks
- saran wrap
- decorative food picks
- small cupcake wrappers
Take your rice and make it into 3 balls. Try to visualize the proportions of her head when you make it. If the rice balls are too big it may not end up looking like Minnie!
When you’ll made your balls, take some seaweed and wrap it around the rice. Use the saran wrap to press the seaweed onto the rice ball.
Take the sliced ham and cut it like the above picture. This is your Minnie bow.
Take the bigger piece and scrunch it like so. Take the other piece and wrap it around the center. Stick a piece of raw spaghetti into the ribbon to fix it in place.
Take your sliced cheese and cut out the shape of Minnie’s face. Take thin slices of boiled carrot and cut them into hearts. Take your veggies and stick them in there as well! You can take some leftover pasta or something and stick a bit in. Take the ham ribbon and stick the other end of the raw pasta into your Minnie head.
Take some more seaweed and use scissors to cut out the face parts for Minnie. You can make her make whatever face your heart desires! Don’t feel like you must conform to the picture below.
You can though.
Take the seaweed parts and press them onto your cheese.
There you have it! Your Minnie is looking good and ready to be eaten!
