All you need is rice, soy sauce, nori and cheese. A microwave is not required. Just mix the rice and cut out the facial features.
I wanted a recipe that didn't require a microwave and could be easily made on busy mornings. I made this with ingredients from the cupboard.
The soft and fluffy neckline turns out better if you don't pack the rice too tightly. To get the ears and eyes the same size, layer two pieces of nori and then cut them together at the same time.
