Halloween meatball mouse

One of the classic Halloween dishes. 
The classic meatballs but in the shape of a mouse.
Horrible but tasty and fun if you have little guests for dinner.
  
Served on a plate of spaghetti with a few sketches of ketcup to imitate blood and the party will be immediately lucubrious. 

Ingredients:
1/2 kg ground beef
300 gr bread for toast
200ml milk
1 egg
Salt
1 Carrot
Cloves

Method:
Put the bread in the milk for few seconds until it’ s well wet. Squeeze it, add it in a bowl. Add the ground beef, the egg and a pinch of salt.
With your hands knead everything until it is homogeneous.
Form the mouse body as seen in the photo gallery below. Brush each meatball with a little olive oil.
Bake for about 30 – 35 min ( 180°C / 350°F)
Remove from the oven. When they are warm, press the cloves in to the pointy end to make the eyes, carrots half slices to make ears. For the tail you can use the final filament of carrots or thin stalks of carrots, parsley etc
