Dragon Bento Lunch

Dragon Bento Lunch

I made this mashed potato dragon by cutting chilled Cheddar mashed potatoes with a cookie cutter. (see directions below)

Container: Wooden box purchased in Kyoto at Bento&co.

Contents: Dragon – Cheddar mashed potatoes, cooked broccoli, strawberries, blueberries, walnuts

Cookie Cutter Cheddar Mashed Potatoes

  • Peel, dice and cook potatoes in boiling water until tender
  • Mash potatoes with a little bit of butter and shredded Cheddar cheese, salt and pepper to taste (I did not use milk because I wanted the mashed potatoes to be thick)
  • Spread Cheddar mashed potatoes on a plate or in a pan to the correct thickness and size for your cookie cutter
  • Chill Cheddar potatoes in refrigerator until somewhat firm
  • Cut the firm Cheddar mashed potatoes with a cookie cutter and carefully remove the cutter

Dragon Watermelon Meal

I asked my husband what dragon shaped food he wanted to eat and he said watermelon. I think that he is pretty cute.
