Recipe for Bloody Eyeballs


Halloween is a great time to serve spaghetti and meatballs, especially when the meatballs have extra nutritious ingredients and also have green olives that make them look like eyeballs. Although all of us have eyeballs which aren’t scary, they are considered scary at Halloween, particularly when they are staring up at us from a pot. These easy Bloody Eyeballs can be made ahead and frozen. When it’s time to serve them, they can simply be put in spaghetti sauce, either homemade or canned, and heated in the slow cooker.

Although the meatballs can be rolled into balls by hand, a 1” scoop makes round meatballs not only quickly, but also uniform in size. These meatballs are a bit different than standard meatballs, since they contain extra nutrition in the form of carrots and zucchini, which add moisture, and also cold-milled flax and whole wheat bread crumbs. Round out the meal by serving these Bloody Eyeballs over whole wheat pasta; add a tossed salad and crusty bread.

8 Servings

Meatballs
1 pound lean ground beef
2 tablespoons cold milled flax
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs, preferably whole wheat
