Eyeballs for Breakfast!

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 …

  1. Slice a bagel in half.  Hint:  If you want toast the bagels, let them cool before adding the cream cheese … it may melt.
  2. Spread with softened cream cheese.
  3. 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 …
