Mickey Loves Minnie Valentines Bento

I came across some really cute Mickey and Minnie Valentines card while surfing for Valentines ideas. I love two of the designs, I made one of the design today. I will make the other one another time, maybe next Valentine's day, lol. :P

This is quite an up to date post, made this for dinner today. I was planning to make a toast version today too, but LT had a dental appointment today, and the wait was too long, had no time to make one.

Mickey and Minnie are exchanging Valentines gifts, Minnie bought a box of chocolates and Mickey has a bouquet of flowers for her.

Ingredients used for Mickey and Minnie were rice, nori, capsicum (yellow and red), cheese and strawberry. I'm sharing the seaweed pork rolls recipe below (the ones in the heart food cups), they still taste good when cold, so they're perfect for packing into bentos.


15 slices shabu shabu pork
15 slices Japanese seaweed
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp soya sauce
1 tbsp mirin
Flour/egg/panko(japanese breadcrumbs) for coating

  1. Season pork slices with salt, soya sauce and mirin.

  5. Roll up the pork/seaweed.

  8. Deep fry or shallow fry till golden brown.

  • You can also add in additional cheese or cod roe fillings. Simply place some cheese or cod roe on top of the end of seaweed that you start rolling from . 
  • Panko can be replaced with breadcrumbs.
