Monster Eyes

Give sausage balls a spooky look by placing a pimiento-stuffed olive in the center of each one. These "eyes" are a fun breakfast treat on Halloween morning.

  • Yield: Makes about 4 1/2 dozen
  • Prep time: 20 Minutes
  • Bake: 18 Minutes


  • 3 cups all-purpose baking mix

1. Combine 3 cups all-purpose baking mix; 1 lb. ground hot pork sausage; and 1 (8-oz.) block Muenster cheese, shredded, in a large bowl until blended.
