Potato Mice

Nuvita Biscuits

These are guaranteed to leave your plate squeaky clean!


  • 4 medium baking potatoes
  • a little vegetable oil
  • medium butternut squash
  • 40 g butter
  • 40 g freshly grated parmesan
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 100 g grated cheddar cheese

To decorate

  • 4 cherry tomatoes
  • bunch chives
  • 4 radishes
  • 8 raisins
  • spring onions


1. Preheat oven to 190C/gas mark 5. Prick the potatoes in a few places, place on a baking tray and brush all over with the oil. Bake for 1-1 1/4 hours or until they feel soft when pressed.

2. Cut a medium butternut squash in half, scoop out the seeds and brush with a knob of melted butter. Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes or until tender.

3. When cool enough to handle, cut the tops off the baked potatoes. Scoop out the flesh, taking care not to damage the skin.

4. Remove the flesh of the cooked butternut squash and add to the baked potato flesh along with mustard, parmesan, milk and butter. Mash together until smooth. Season to taste.

5. Put the mixture back into the potato shells, cover with the grated cheddar. Cook under a hot grill for a few minutes until golden.

6. Fix a small cherry tomato into each of the potatoes using a cocktail stick for the noses. Add some short lengths of chives for the whiskers – tuck these behind the tomato. Decorate with halved radishes for the ears, raisins for the eyes and spring onion for the tails.

    My cat was recently blocked up and was on Hill’s Prescription Diet. I recently switched him to a brand called Wellness that I found at Petco because after reading the ingredients of the Hill’s prescription, I was appalled by the all of the by-products. This Wellness brand looked good except it had things in it such as blueberries, cranberries, sweet potatoes, etc and I was wondering if this is good or if there is a different brand I should try for his condition?
    He had a urethral blockage about a month ago, just to clarify what I meant by “blocked up.”
    He is on the 12.5 oz cans (chicken and turkey flavors) – half a can a day split into two separate meals in the morning and evening

    If you set up a little container of water and a separate container of water, its ruptures a mouse’s stomach but does it blow them up? I don’t feel like cleaning up mouse guts out of my carpet. Just sayin’!

    It may be mice, rats, but more likely I hope it’s a dead bird in an unused chimney and it’s not very nice. Don’t know if it has seeped through to neighbours yet. Maybe they are murderers. One is a policewoman – good cover up maybe……..

    Please help. It is very frustrated. We spent a lot of money building fences, mouse traps, spray. His tail was cut by the trap, but he is so tough.

    We have a mouse in our house. We tried d-con pellets, instant mashed potato flakes, and peanut butter scented glue traps. Finally, we put out 3 old-fashioned snap traps. This morning, when I went to check the three traps, the bait was gone from each trap, but none of them were set off. How is this possible? I know I set the traps the right way. Are there any other methods I could try to use to kill this pest?
