White Rice (1 cup)
Water (2 cups)
Soy Sauce (1 Tbsp)
before cooking. It will give you perfect color for Rilakkuma's brownness. I used a pot this time but you can use a steamer instead.
Create the facial features while waiting for the rice to be cooked. Cut a thin slice of
Cheese (1 slice)
, then make a round shape with a knife, or a cookie cutter for the mouth. For the ears, I used a thin slice of
Carrots (1 slice)

Dried Seaweed (1 sheet)
, but you can also use scissors.

Salt (1 pinch)
and mix again. Low heat the pan, wait, and then drop
Butter (1 Tbsp)
and spread it on the pan. Wait until the butter becomes white-ish and bubbly. Add the eggs and wait. Slowly scrape the eggs to the center with a spatula.
Keep doing this until the egg is cooked, and pour onto Rilakkuma, like a blanket. Garnish with
Ground Black Pepper (to taste)
, serve, and enjoy!
