An Original Recipe by Lorraine Elliott

Preparation time: 20 minutes plus 30 minutes refrigeration time

Cooking time: 55 minutes

Serves: 12

  • 2 onions, peeled and finely diced
  • 2 carrots, finely diced
  • 4 garlic, peeled and finely diced
  • 1kg/1.1lbs wagyu beef mince
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup tomato paste
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
  • 4 chicken's feet
  • 2 slices potato
  • 3 stuffed green olives
  • 2 pieces spaghetti, each broken into 3 pieces
  • Long red chilli

Step 1 - Sauté the onion, carrots and garlic until soft and fragrant. Allow to cool and then mix with the wagyu mince, breadcrumbs, eggs and tomato paste. Fry a little of the mixture and taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper if it needs it. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to firm up.

Step 2 - Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Line a baking tray with parchment and take 3/4 of the mixture and shape it into a body and the remaining 1/4 into a pointy head. Place two olives in as the eyes. Slice another olive in half and place it as the nose. Place the potato ears in place by inserting a knife into the head and cutting out slits for the potatoes and sliding them in. Attach the chicken's feet and add the spaghetti whiskers. Then slice the long red chilli so that it looks an articulated tail and place at the back. Bake for 45 minutes.
