Easy Mini Burger Bento

Ok so this is my first recipe I’m posting! The Japanese mini burger bento Well Japanese actually call it hambaaguu..!

I usually make these for dinner with rice/ furikake and side vegetables(broccoli, roasted pumpkin ,Japanese potato salad and miso soup) so I always make extra ones and then put some aside before serving dinner.

400g pork or beef mince (I prefer beef)
1 cup  of breadcrumbs I use home-made or you can use panko, this will make them soft too and light!
1 small onion, sliced very finely
1 egg
1/4 cup grated carrot
1 spring onion (optional)
1 Tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp sugar
a sprinkle of salt and pepper
2 Tbsp tomato sauce

1.  Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
2.  Pre-heat a large frypan to med heat, add a little oil.
3.  Shape into small hamburgers in your hand and put them in the frypan (about 4cm )
4.  Turn when browned and cook until browned on both sides.

If they cook too fast zap them in your microwave for 1 min so they can cook through.
I then added some animal sandwiches from the
‘animal sandwich  cutters” which are on the website www.luvbento.com soon to be running in 2 weeks !!! IMG_0966
