Mickey and Minnie Onigiri Character Bento

Mickey and Minnie Onigiri Character Bento

Their faces are difficult but I left out the difficult parts and made an easy Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

Ingredients: 1 Mickey

Plain cooked rice
As needed
Nori seaweed
As needed
1 slice
Sausage or similar
As needed
Beer ham (for Minnie)
As needed
As needed


1. Form a round rice ball. Cut the edges of the nori seaweed off and wrap the rice ball with the seaweed. Cover in plastic wrap and blend the seaweed in evenly around the rice ball.
2. The parts are made of nori seaweed and cheese. The cheeks are ketchup.
3. To make the face, draw the shape on a piece of parchment paper and cut around the edges. Then place the paper onto the cheese and cut the cheese to fit the shape. Make it a size big enough to fit the rice balls!
4. To make the ears, cut nori seaweed into circles and place onto the cheese. Cut the cheese around the seaweed. If you place some thickly cut sausage underneath, it's easy to fix together.
5. To make the ribbon, I made it with ham but you can use whatever ham you like.
6. Place the onigiri into the bento and fix the ears in place. Once you've added all the parts, you're finished!
7. Mickey.
8. Minnie.

Story Behind this Recipe

I tried to make it as easy as possible to make a cute Mickey Mouse, which is normally difficult!
