Turkey and Rice "Mice"
Meals for Happy, Healthy Kids
Cuteness counts! Have a conversation with your kids about these critters, let them stick on the eyes, ears and tails, and see if they have an attitude adjustment toward brown rice and turkey!
Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
Place the bread in a food processor and pulse to make fine crumbs. Transfer the crumbs to a large bowl and add the turkey, rice, onion, ketchup and salt. Mix with your hands or a spoon until well blended. Form the mixture into 8 small oval loaves and place the loaves in a 9 × 13-inch baking 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 tails with carrot slices and strips.
