MIce ... and they are after the Cheese ! Well it is all LCHF !



Who says eating Low Carb High Fat food is boring! Not me ...
There are so many ways you can serve your food and a great variety too - just have a look at the recipes within this blog!

Now ... I've got to say these mice are just so cute, and tasty! The grandkids can have fun making them too, and they make a great lunch or tea time treat. But these mice are always popular at family gatherings too. Place them on a platter by some chunks of cheese, not only do they make a lovely table piece, but quite a talking point too ...

Here are the ingredients you will need to make 12 Mice:
6 eggs
4 radishes
12 fresh chives
24 black peppercorns, whole
15 oz. / 400g cheddar cheese, or any other cheese


Nutritional Details:

The chives make a lovely tail for these mice and are a great herb - the smallest and most delicate member of the onion family, chives are a popular herb used in European cookery. They have long, thin green blades that are hollow inside. They have a mild, grassy flavour similar to baby spring onions or young leeks. There is also an Asian variety of chive called Chinese chives, garlic chives or kuchai.

Buyer's guide:
Chives are in season in spring and summer. Fresh chives are widely available from supermarkets and garden centres. Do not substitute fresh chives for dried, as the finished dish will taste musty.

Storage:
Keep fresh chives refrigerated for up to three days.

Preparation:
Snip chives with scissors instead of chopping them, and do not subject them to much cooking as they are delicate. Instead, use chives in garnishes, salads, egg mayonnaise sandwiches, vegetable stocks, soups, creamy sauces, potato dishes and omelettes, adding the herb to the dish just before serving. Purple-blue chive flowers are also eaten and used as a garnish.


Safe Aware:
If cooking with young children they should always be supervised - more details here

Super cute. I was a bit surprised at the fat content though. Surely that comes from the cheese rather than the mice?

These are so cute. But, I cannot figure out why these look sort of deflated and not cut in half.
