Bento Diaries continues with the fourth diary in the adventures of learning how to make the perfect Japanese bento box. These little mini-hamburgers are SOOOO good. I loved the taste the touch of nutmeg gave the hamburgers. I used ground turkey meat (dark meat). I bought my little flower cut outs online. She gives great advice on how to pre-make these and freeze the burgers, which will make it easy to make this bento box again quickly down the road. I didn’t do that this time because my husband ATE THEM ALL before I could. Next time I will double the recipe and freeze some. Practice makes perfect folks. Join me in learning how to make bento and check out Makiko Itoh’s book The Just Bento Cookbook.

- Brown Rice (short grain)
- I skipped the cheese flowers and only did carrots.
- For my fruit I did a WONDERFUL mix of chopped pear with blueberries. The riper the pear the better.
- Dark ground turkey meat instead of ground beef.
