Don’t tell me that you didn’t smile upon seeing these photos? I do every time I see them! 🙂 I may not have children, but I’m having a lot of fun with such recipes. So, cheesy mice is today’s recipe; a recipe for small and grown-up kids!
Frankly, it is not exactly a recipe. It is so simple to make and so impressive. You choose cheeses triangles of your liking. I used some with parmesan, I found a large supermarket, and they were very tasty. Cheesy mice ears are made with thin slices of radish, and the whiskers and tail from chives. For the eyes you have two options, depending on who they will consume the finger food. Either you put whole black peppercorns, or chop very small pieces of black olives.
Total time: 10 minutes
Servings: 8 pieces
- 8 cheese triangles
- 3-4 small radishes, washed & cut in thin slices
- whole black peppercorns, or, finely chopped black olive
- 8 crackers of your choice (I used rye)
- Place one cheese on each cracker.
- Put two slices of radish on each cheese, to make the ears.
- Cut with a sharp knife the center point of each cheese lengthwise and attach the sprigs of chives to make the whiskers.
- Put a small sprig of chives to make the tail.
- Finally, you create the eyes by using peppercorns or chopped olives.
Serve your cheesy mice in an impressive serving dish, such as IKEA’s ARV BROLLOP serving plate and surprise your guests!
