Muenster Eyes

These creepy appetizers are sure to be a hit at your next gathering!  You can easily make this at any time of the year - not just for Halloween.  I use the hot pork sausage in the frozen section, not hot Italian sausage as not everyone likes fennel seeds.  Muenster blocks are sold usually in 8 oz. blocks, you will use half this and then shred it.

1 1/2 cups baking mix
1 lb. hot pork sausage
4 oz. Muenster cheese block, shredded
8 large, garlic stuffed olives from deli

In a bowl, mix together the baking mix, sausage and shredded cheese by hand forming it into a thick log.  Cut the log in half, then half again - finally cutting each slice into quarters.  Form each section into a rough, thick disk and set aside.

Half each of the stuffed olives to form the 'eyes' and press firmly in the middle of each sausage/cheese disk.  You can either place into a covered container in the refrigerator until ready or bake them off immediately on a Silpat-lined baking sheet for 15-18 minutes in a 400-degree oven.  Let rest for five minutes before serving.
