In all seriousness though, mice are far too cute to eat. --Kels 15:58, 29 May 2007 (CDT)

Nothing is too cute to eat.--PalMD-yada yada 15:59, 29 May 2007 (CDT)

I like the Rat Bordeaux style, where you take besotted, alcoholic rats, skin and gut them, and grill them over burning wine casks. Now there's livin'! --Kels 16:02, 29 May 2007 (CDT)

Dormice are best served stuffed into pheasent and covered in garum. bleh..Or even better, capybara(sp?) in chili sauce.Prof0705 16:08, 29 May 2007 (CDT)

Kels, is it supposed to be cloves, or cloves of garlic? humanbe in 23:36, 31 May 2007 (CDT)

Honestly, I'm not sure since Mowat didn't specify. Although I suspect garlic cloves would have been tricky to come by in the far north at the time (no grocery stores). Why not make it both ways and find out which is better? --Kels 06:40, 1 June 2007 (CDT)
As the resident chef, I vote for cloves.DocSock 07:10, 1 June 2007 (CDT)
I'd suggest garlic with a cream sauce, cloves would be a trifle overpowering and would mar the subtle flavours inherent in the dish. Then again, a mouse studded with cloves worn around the neck would surely ward off the ill humours that cause plague... Trashbat 07:13, 1 June 2007 (CDT)
I cannot find any mice at the market, though around my house I have a dozen chipmunks or so running around, can I substitute them in this recipe? (Also, for future reference, does one leave the mice tails on or off?)~~ C®acker 10:02, 1 June 2007 (CDT)
Ironically, I heard my kitchen mousetrap go Snap! while I was reading the recipe... yummy! Souris snacks! humanbe in 11:49, 1 June 2007 (CDT)
I am not the originator of the recipe, but as the culinary director, I will suggest: 1) tails are useful to hold the animal as you eat. 2) Chipmunks require different prep, but, I don't see why you couldn't try the substitution.DocSock 10:04, 1 June 2007 (CDT)
