Eyes and Ears in Blood

Eyes and Ears in Blood

TO MAKE THE EARS:

1 1/cup cake flour (not self-rising)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large egg yolks
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup water
3 drops Red food coloring

Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl. In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients together.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix. Depending on the humidity, you may need to add a little more flour. Dump the dough out onto a floured counter and knead well. If the dough is still too sticky, add more flour. Knead the dough about 5 minutes. Let the dough sit while preparing the eyeballs

TO MAKE THE EYEBALLS:

1-1/2 of Ground Chicken or more
1/8 teaspoon Salt
1/8 teaspoon Pepper (white if you have it but black will do)
1/8 teaspoon Garlic
Pitted Medium Green Olives
Pitted Medium Black Olives

Dump the ground chicken in a mixing bowl, add the spices, and mix well. Make little balls of chicken about 1-1/2 inches in diameter and place on a cookie sheet. To make the iris of the eye, take a green olive and cut in half and remove the pimento if you bought that type. To make the pupil, cut a black olive into small pieces. Now insert the black olive piece into the half of green olive. Stick the green olive onto the ground chicken eyeball. When you cook the eyeballs, you do not want them to brown, so steam them. Steam the eyeballs just like you would steam vegetables. It should take about 20 minutes over medium heat.

BACK TO THE PREPARATION OF THE EARS:

Roll out the dough on a floured counter with a rolling pin. The dough should end up about 1/8 inch thick.
Cut out round pieces of dough using a glass about 3 inches in diameter. Cut a small hole in the middle of the 3 inch piece of dough to form the ear canal. Roll up the edge of the round piece of dough and form into an ear shape. It helps to have a picture of an ear since you cannot look at your own. Put the finished ears on a dishtowel and let dry overnight if possible. If you do not have time, an hour or two will suffice.
Cook the ears in boiling water and 1 tablespoon of olive for about 2 minutes or until they float to the top of the water. Drain the ears in a colander.

TO MAKE THE BLOOD:

Simply take a small jar of spaghetti sauce and mix in some red food coloring.

ASSEMBLE THE DISH:

In a crock-pot or dish, pour the “blood” into bottom. Arrange the cooked “eyes” and “ears” and your done.
It can be easily microwave or heated in a crock pot.
