Spaghetti and Eyeballs Halloween Recipe for Kids

If you have followed my sites over the years, you know that this is my all-time favorite kids recipe for a Halloween meal. It’s easy, it’s tasty, it fills them up for the spooky night ahead and the kids love it. Plus, my kids ask for it. I often make it now the night before, so we can try new things on Halloween night – I like to surprise them. The green olives actually add a wonderful ‘olive oil’ type of taste to the burger, it is very yummy. When you bake the meatballs – like mini round meatloaf – it keeps them set and the olive intact. I tried to bake with the sauce one year and it made the meatballs to soft, so bake them separate.
