Yes, ’tis the weekend before Samhain (/sa-ween/) or Halloween again and there is a party and rats on a stick. This year I varied the recipe again, using a can each of cannelloni, navy beans, and red kidney beans with about 1 1/2 cups of plain bread crumbs, four chicken eggs, and maybe a quarter cup of teriyaki sauce, with salt, pepper, and garlic to taste (i.e. tons) for the outer cores and 1/3 or 1/4 of a string cheese stick for the core of each rat. The tails are bucatini, a spaghetti-like tubular pasta. They will be served with teriyaki sauce to dip (rats on a stick can get pretty dry when reheated). Bon appatite!
