New year is a family holiday. And there are always children at the festive table. And they are known fastidious and terrible conservatives! But they are great connoisseurs of beauty and are always happy to bright and fun decorated dishes. Even the simplest! Prepare juicy tender cutlets and turn them into mice! Try on the role of a Fairy! And there will be no Caprice at the table !
Well, cutlets are always easy. But with the help of a powerful combine, mince is a pleasure to grind. Simply put the sliced meat and onion cubes into the bowl of the combine and press several times in pulse mode . Of course, the meat should first be cleaned of films and veins.
Add the soaked loaf slices to the mince, pour in the remaining milk, salt and pepper to taste. With several pulse cycles, punch the minced meat until smooth.
The combine makes a very uniform minced meat , which does not need further beating and is well formed.
Using wet hands, divide the minced meat into medium - sized tortillas. In the middle of each tortilla, put a ball of mozzarella and form an oblong Patty, making one edge thinner and the other thicker.
Spread the cutlets in a suitable form, lightly greasing it with oil.
Stick allspice peas in the mince - 2 for the eyes and 1 for the nose. Pour half a Cup of boiling water and bake the cutlets in a preheated 180- degree oven for 30 minutes . A couple of times you can pour the liquid over the cutlets from the bottom of the mold. Then check the readiness of the puncture - if the juice is transparent- it is ready.
Allow the cutlets to cool slightly and transfer them to a convenient Board or plate. With a small knife, make a small incision in the thin part of the cutlet -behind the "eyes" - and insert two halves of the potato chip into it. On the back side of the cutlet, insert a cheese stick, imitating the tail.
While the cutlets were baking , it 's time to prepare mashed potatoes . By all the rules, it's lush and delicious. Don't forget a couple of simple techniques to do this. Be sure to carefully drain the potatoes cooked in salt water and let them dry on a low heat for a couple of minutes . Crush the potatoes-without lumps! Heat the milk and butter until it dissolves. Pour in the butter milk slowly, stirring the puree with a spatula until it is light.
Place the puree on a large platter in the form of a cheese head. Make "holes in the cheese " using a round-bottomed measuring spoon . Put our mousetraps on the "cheese", garnish a little with herbs and serve immediately.
