Combine baking mix, sausage, and cheese in a big bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon until blended.
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.
They looked terrific, they tasted okay. I made them using Jimmy Dean regular sausage and only 2.5 c baking mix. They really need, in my opinion, a much spicier sausage and less baking mix. I tried cooking one first, just to see what they tasted like (before I took them to a party) and I think the 400 degree oven was a big hot so when I cooked the rest I turned the oven down to 375 and that was fine. I'll be making them again with the next set of alternations. I started giving them three stars but decided on four for presentation!
