Bento with Minions from "Despicable Me"

Bento with Minions from "Despicable Me"

My son loves the Minions
I added their cuteness to his usual bento lunchbox.

Ingredients: 1 bento

Sliced cheese
1~2 slices
Nori seaweed
As needed
Chicken rice or cooked white rice
As needed


1. Use one of the eggs to make a boiled egg. This will be the eye.
2. Make a thin omelet with the other egg and make a round hole in the omelet. This will be the body. It's easy to make a hole if you use a cookie cutter!
3. Cut the nori to make the glasses, eye, mouth and clothes.
4. Place the nori on top of the sliced cheese and cut it out to make a base for the nori.
5. Make the shape of the body with the boiled egg and chicken rice. Arrange the thin omelet on top of the body. In the photo I used just half of the boiled egg.
6. Place the parts made from the nori on top... and add some teeth made from cheese. If can easily make rounded teeth using a small flower-shaped cookie cutter!
7. Fill up the rest of the bento box... done!
8. This time I used a flower cutter from a 100 yen deco bento kit and the back of a cookie cutter.
