Halloween Party! #SundaySupper - Marinated Eyeballs

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  I always wanted to have an all-out party with all the spooky decorations and lots of spooky food.  Well - the party is here today!  I always dress up as a witch every year.  The kids are always surprised to see someone dressed up when I open the door.  One year I had a sign on the front door from the Wizard of Oz.  The sign in the forest that said "I'd turn back if I were you"!
One of the little boys came up to the door - read the sign - and walked away!  I'll never forget it!

Our host this week is Leslie at La Cocina de Leslie.  She has conjured up the #SundaySupper group to make this the best Halloween Party ever!

Marinated Mozzarella Eyeballs

  • Big firm olives (black and green).  Try the olive bar at your local grocery
  • Mozzarella balls
  • Drinking straw
  • Olive oil, oregano, red pepper flakes
Slice off the end of the green olive and punch a hole in the center with the straw.  Punch a hole with the straw in the black olive, remove circle and insert into hole of the green olive.  Place on top of mozzarella balls.  You may want to cut a small sliver off the bottom of the mozzarella ball to keep it upright.  Place in a shallow dish and drizzle with olive oil, oregano and red pepper flakes.

Stab each eyeball with a toothpick for an additional "ewwwww".  Makes it easy for serving as well.


These can also be served in a "bloody" marinara sauce.

Into the streets little witches flew,
Ringing doorbells begging candy of you.
As the moon rose high and the winds blew,
Turn the light out when the kids became few.
You're thinking this year's tricks are through,
But tonight it's Marinated Eyeballs for you!
Sunday Supper has more goodies too,
Click through the posts and try a few!
