Then this recipe is for you. In fact, it's so easy that you may say Lucy, that's what you call a recipe?? But let me tell you, my taste testers thought it was both adorable and delicious.
Ingredients for spooky carrot eyes
Whipped cream cheese
Sliced black olives
Onion powder to taste
White pepper to taste
The amounts of the above will depend on how many of these you are making. To serve three people before lunch, I used one carrot, one large tablespoon of cream cheese, and a dash of the onion powder and white pepper. If you're making a bigger plate of "eyes", simply double or triple the amounts.
Wash and scrape the carrots and cut them into rounds, probably about half inch thickness will work best. Mix the cream cheese with the seasonings (and feel free to substitute other favorites if you prefer.)
Top each carrot round with a dollop of the cream cheese mixture and place a black olive "eye" on top. That's it! Refrigerate until serving.
And if the carrots don't float your boat, how about pumpkins stuffed with cornbread, leeks, and bacon?
