Need an easy peasy and fun breakfast idea for Halloween morning? How about eyeballs? Yes, I said eyeballs … a little creepy, but not too scary! I’m not really sure if eyeballs alone are a well-balanced breakfast … maybe add a scrambled egg on the side 😉 This is my idea of a fun and easy breakfast or afternoon snack idea …
OK, all kidding aside … eyeballs are bagels and cream cheese … perfect in the morning or anytime of day! Son #3 took them to the office for morning coffee break … eyeballs are not just for kids! I did make two versions … for those of you that don’t want to serve candy for breakfast …
The fake spiders are my version of “special effects” and the only kind of spiders allowed in my kitchen 😉
This is how I made them …
- Slice a bagel in half. Hint: If you want toast the bagels, let them cool before adding the cream cheese … it may melt.
- Spread with softened cream cheese.
- Put strawberry (or any red) jelly or jam (with pieces of fruit removed) into a disposable decorating bag, cut the tip off (creating a tiny opening) and pipe some squiggly “blood-shot” lines on the cream cheese. Hints: A Ziploc bag could be used. A tube of red gel or frosting could be used in place of jelly.
Option A – I found these great gummy eyeball candies (6 eyeballs in one box). Hint: I’ve also seen large bags of them in the Halloween candy section of stores.
Option B – I used sliced kiwi and blueberries. Hint: Use a dot of jelly or cream cheese under the blueberries … they tend to roll away!
Both versions are easy to make and fun to eat! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do … eyeballs always make me smile! Here’s some from the past …

Cool. I like the kiwi and blueberry version best!
Thank you Beth 🙂 My niece helped me come up with this “healthier version”!
And there goes Brenda, chasing down her runaway blueberry eyes…!
You are soooo right Kathleen 😉 I learned the hard way …chasing them on the kitchen floor!
This is so cute! I love beagle eyes! I think we need to eat them often! Pining now!
Thank you so much Lisa 🙂
