It may make your guests cringe at first, but it’s guaranteed to have them coming back for a second taste and maybe look. This recipe is healthy because it uses lean turkey, but hearty enough to keep everyone satisfied. Be sure to pair with your favorite cheese and crackers on a platter along with a delicious cocktail. Presentation is important, so use plenty of candles and creepy, crawly things to accent your delicious Halloween finger food.

For Ingredients you’ll need:

1 lb. lean ground turkey

1 egg

1 c. bread crumbs

1/2 c. water

1/4 c. onions, finely chopped

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. black pepper

2 tbsp. ketchup

1/4 c. sour cream

1/4 c. green olives sliced with pimento still in center

Optional: finely sliced prosciutto


Begin by preheating your oven to 425 degrees. Combine turkey, egg, bread crumbs, water, onions, salt pepper and ketchup in a large bowl. Knead ingredients until mixture looks even throughout. Take one tablespoonful at a time and roll into balls. Place the balls on a greased cookie sheet one inch apart from each other. Once all the meatballs are arranged, bake in the over for 20 minutes, making sure meatballs are cooked all the way through and not pink at the center. Allow the meatballs to cool on rack for about 5 minutes. Insert a toothpick into each meatball a little further back than center. Use the toothpick to transfer meatball to the serving dish of your choice. For each meatball, use a teaspoon and put a tiny dollop of sour cream to form the “white” of the eye. Follow with olive slices on top of the white sour cream to complete the look of the eye. Be sure to position meatballs in groups of two, so they look like pairs of eyes. For a fun twist, try moving the olives slightly off center. To complete the gory look, take fine slices of prosciutto ham and randomly lay across the plate and meatballs themselves. Add a few squirts of ketchup to amp up the creepy factor and your meatballs will be the hit of the party.
