For use with any CanCooker

Zombie Eyes – Halloween Meatballs


  • 1 8 oz. package spaghetti precooked
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp parsley flakes
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 black olives halved
  • 1 1 oz. stick string cheese cut into 16 slices
  • 1 16 oz. jar spaghetti sauce


  • In a large bowl combine parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, egg, garlic, parsley, basil and oregano.
  • Fold in ground beef and mix together until well blended. 
  • Form into 16 equal sized meatballs.
  • In any CanCooker, add the spaghetti sauce and place on a medium-to-medium low heat. Add the meatballs to the sauce cover and steam for 15-20 minutes. 
  • While meatballs are cooking, use a plastic straw to punch a hole through each olive half to create a circular ‘pupil’. Use the same straw to punch a hole through the center of each string cheese slice. Insert the round olive piece inside the hole in the string cheese slice to create ‘eyes’. 
  • Remove meatballs from the CanCooker and let cool until safe to handle.
  • Assemble zombie eye by spooning a dot of spaghetti sauce onto each meatball where you want to place the ‘eyes’.  Apply the olive-cheese ‘eye’ over the sauce.  Serve with spaghetti and sauce.
