Whether to keep an eye on your food, or your food keeps an eye on you may be debatable with this innovative delectable appetizer. Perfect for Halloween parties or just a snack. They really do look back at you.

Eyeballs on Ritz
Recipe type: Appetizers
Serves: 0
  • eggs; hard boiled
  • black olives
  • Ritz crackers
  • red food coloring
  1. Cut hard boiled eggs in half lengthwise. Remove yolks and make filling for deviled eggs. Cut out small hole from bottom center of each egg (about 5/8" diameter.) Poke a black olive part way through each hole and hold in place by filling eggs with yolk filling. Place each egg, olive side up, on a Ritz cracker. Paint red lines, resembling blood veins, with a toothpick on the eye.
Note: next time try this with small eggs and small olives to see how it works. Sunnyside up quail eggs worked brilliantly, but are hard to find in most places. Large eggs were bigger than the Ritz but they still looked good. We also used small mozzarella balls, cut in half for a 3-D look (no pun intended).
