Meatball Brothers and Sisters: For Bentos

Meatball Brothers and Sisters: For Bentos

Cute meatball brothers and sisters. They're great in bento lunchboxes.


Meatballs (readymade)
Frozen mixed vegetables
4 pieces
A small amount
Nori seaweed
A small amount
Bento picks of your choice


1. Make a cut a little below the center point of a meatball, and stick in a piece of mixed vegetable. Make round eyes with sliced cheese and nori seaweed, and stick them on the meatball with a toothpick.
2. The cucumber here is optional; I just use it as something for the meatballs to sit on for the photo.
3. The meatballs in this photo are brothers. They have edamame in their mouths.
4. The older brother is an ambulance worker.
5. The younger brother is a zoo attendant.
6. rhmt-chan made a meatball character using a piece of crabstick in the mouth. Kawaii!
7. Okame-san made this brother and sister. Soo cute!
8. One user ("Aozora Lemon") made these brothers. Cute even without picks!
