Halloween is dominated by sweets so go the savory route and make these Monster Eyes with simple sausage ball ingredients and green olives with pimentos.

Makes about 4 1/2 dozen Monster Eyes (serving size: 1 monster eye)


+ Add To Shopping List
3 cups all-purpose baking mix
1 pound ground mild or hot pork sausage
1 (10-ounce) block extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded (we used Cracker Barrel)
54 small pimiento-stuffed olives


Prep: 30 Minutes
Cook: 22 Minutes

1. Preheat oven to 400°.

2. Combine baking mix, sausage, and cheese in a big bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon until blended.

3. Shape sausage mixture into 1-inch balls, and place on lightly greased baking sheets. Press 1 olive deeply into each ball. Reroll using the palms of your hands if you need to reshape. Bake at 400° for 22 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove baking sheets from the oven using oven mitts.

Make-Ahead Tip: Freeze Monster Eyes in an airtight container up to 1 month. To reheat, place frozen balls on an ungreased baking sheet, and bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until heated through.
