Wow, it’s been a few weeks now– I actually made these the weekend of October 20th. Been too bust to post much.
Anyway I made the usual rats on a stick for my Mom’s Halloween party, although this year I made the rats from just crushed cannellini beans (aka white beans) and Gimme Lean — no bread crumbs, no egg. In this case 2 packages of Gimme Lean ‘sausage’ and one can of beans, with some spices added. But first I reserved a couple dozen beans for rat eyes. Otherwise just follow the usual recipe. The white eyes worked OK.
The other thing I made was a load of bread, with eyes. I meant for it to look like a mummy, but it looks just as much like a ghost or even a snake, according to my daughter. Fresh baked bread is too tempting though and it didn’t make it to the party.
Baked, it hardly looked any different., although he must have been uncomfortable as he settled on his side.
