Muffin Burgers Monday

I'm attempting a bento "class" online. This week's homework was to create some non-muffin food using a muffin tin. I experimented with a few foods. The one that worked was these turkey-veg burgers. They are a frequent item at our dinner table (and lunch boxes). Instead of cooking them in a pan, I just baked the burgers in a muffin tin. It takes longer to bake, but it's great to just put them in the oven and walk away. I also made sweet brown rice for the first time. It was so good, plus it was sticky which made it easier for Senorcito to get a hold of. Yum!

My Lunch:
  • Turkey-Zucchini-Carrot Muffin Tin Burgers
  • Carrots and Green Beans
  • Plum and Blackberries
  • Sweet Brown Rice w/ Carrot Flowers and Wheat-free Soy Sauce

Senorcito's Food:

  • Breakfast - Mixed Muffins, Banana and Cherries
  • Lunch - Mini Turkey Burgers, Carrots and Green Beans, Sweet Brown Rice
  • Snack - Cereal, Blueberries

The turkey burgers look great, almost like mini-meatloafs!
