Inspired by the Mc Donald’s Rice Burger, I decided it would be a good idea to try it myself. However, I didn’t have any ground beef in the house, nor chicken nuggets, so I decided to make larger than usual tsukune (recipe here) and make mini rice burgers with tsukune.
Mini Rice Burgers. Made with 2 hamburger patty-shaped onigiri with a tsukune patty and shredded iceberg lettuce in between. I brushed the top with teriyaki glaze and sprinkled a few sesame seeds. One issue I had with it was the fact that it was pretty fragile. Even though I used short-grain sushi rice, the onigiri felt fragile to the touch since it was a bit thin. I felt like it would fall apart with handling, so I decided to hold the thing together with cling wrap.
* Fruit cocktail – Peaches, pineapple, nata de coco, and red papaya in light syrup.
* Happy quail egg laying on an asparagus spear fence.
* Nissin choco wafer divider. Also wrapped with clingwrap to prevent soggy asparagussy wafers
* Oishi brand Bread Pan. So redundant right? Bread + Pan? But honestly, it’s so good, like mini-sliced garlic and parmesan baguette that I’ll forgive them anything. And it seems like a lot of people agree with me as evinced by how hard it is to find it in stock.
* A heart-shaped tsukune sandwich. I made 3 patties from half a recipe. Seemed a waste to not eat the third one just because I ran out of rice.
