Would you believe, Mouse on a stick?

So last night I whipped up a batch of veggie rats on a stick, using ingredients closer to the original Judges Guild recipe — the “not ground beef” Gimme Lean, cheese cracker crumbs, colby cheese, and BBQ sauce rather than my Italian-American version — and it occurred to me that these are really not rat-sized at all, but mouse-sized.   Huh.   Anyway since I was tired and unaccountably had no spaghetti on hand, I skipped the tails and whiskers and just did eyes, this time out of whole cloves. Pics below:

The BBQ sauce is pretty dark and looks a bit more disgusting than the pizza sauce, I think.

Anyway I realized the Gimme Lean is so sticky there is no need for eggs, so I didn’t bother adding the egg.  I think eggs are pretty gross anyway.  Liquid chicken.

So these will be a nice snack for the C&C game tonight and a good test run for the winning recipe in the mask contest.

That’s right, a winner was chosen from among the entries and it will be the Severed Hand (reworked to be vegetarian, of course).

After conferring with my wife as I said I would in the original contest rules, we agreed this was the best idea, although each entry had its merits.  So congratulations to Nik Olah for the winning entry!  I’ll be sending you the mask this weekend.  Thanks again Michael at Specter Studios for the fabulous prize!  And thanks to everyone who entered!

    • And yet ultimately, you are responsible for this Ken!

  2. lol that hand plate looks great!

  3. Next weekend I’m going to try cooking up a test run, I’ll post photos and give an update of how it turns, what I would tweak in the recipie.

    For the record, I actually like some of the other suggestions more than my own (and I also plan on taking Rat on a Stick in to work).
