Turkey and Rice "Mice"
1 pound ground skinless turkey breast
1 cup cooked brown rice
1 small onion, grated
¼ cup ketchup
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup unsweetened apple juice
4 sliced pitted black olives
Carrot slices and strips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Place the bread in a food processor and pulse to make the fine crumbs. Transfer the crumbs to a large bowl and add the turkey, rice, onion, ketchup and salt. Mix with your hands or a spin until well blended. Form the mixture into 8 small oval loaves and place the loaves in a 9 X 12-inch pan. Pour the apple juice into the pan. Bake until the mice are cooked through, about 45 minutes.
Remove the mice from the pan with a spatula. Press 2 olive slices into each for eyes and make ears and tail with carrot slices and strips.
