Give 'em the googley eyes with frozen meatballs dressed up with cheese, olives, and squiggles of ketchup.

36
frozen cooked meatballs, 1 inch (from 16-oz bag)
18
fresh ciliegini mozzarella cheese (cherry-size) balls, halved
1/3
cup sliced ripe olives
3/4
cup ketchup
36
toothpicks

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with sides with foil. Place meatballs on cookie sheet.
  • 2 Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until hot. Place 1 halved cheese ball, cut side down, on each meatball to look like white of eye; place olive slice in center to look like pupil of eye. Poke toothpick in center of each to hold in place.
  • 3 Bake 1 to 2 minutes longer or until cheese is slightly softened. Serve with ketchup for dipping.

Expert Tips

If the mozzarella balls are not completely round, slice in half on the longer side to make an almond-shaped eye.

Meatballs come in different flavors. Experiment to find your favorite.
