If your Halloween party include a sit-down dinner, treat your guests to a meal that will give them the evil eye. Try out this "eyeball" soup recipe on your unsuspecting friends.
Tomato soup works best for this dish. The rich color looks a little like blood and will give the "eyes" a nice red surface on which to float. Here's what you'll need to make your eyes:
- About 30 small mozzarella balls (also called bocconcini)
- One jar small pimento-stuffed green olives
Scoop out a hole from each bocconcini. A melon baller works well for this. Next, cut your green olives in half -- across, not length-wise. You'll need one olive half for each bocconcini. Place the olive half with the cut side facing out into the hole in each bocconcini. Presto! Eyeballs.
Serve the tomato soup in large shallow bowls. Float three or four eyeballs in there to keep an "eye" on your guests.
