Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400°.

  • 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.
