Worms & Eyeballs

Warning! If you are easily grossed out by the thought of devouring worms in a bloody eyeball sauce then don’t read the following.

Who does not enjoy a plate full of worms with a dollop of bloody eyeballs? It’s one of my zombies favorite dishes. The recipe is as follows:


2 28oz cans of crushed tomato

2 garlic cloves-finely chopped

5 fresh basil leaves-finely chopped

½ tsp sugar

1 tbsp olive

In a dutch oven (or any deep pan) heat olive oil and add garlic and chopped basil.

If you are not sure how to finely chop the garlic here is a fine how to video:

Take a moment and close your eyes. Enjoy the aroma! Mmmmmm garlic and basil!

I’m in Sicily, Italy. Taking a stroll accompanied by my bodyguards and come across this beauty in a purple dress with ribbons in her hair. I’m rendered speechless. Suddenly I see a small part of my life unfolding before my eyes in just 2 minutes and 54 seconds. It plays out like the following:

Alright back to cooking! So hopefully if the garlic is not fudged up by the distraction of taking my mind to Italy, you can now add the cans of tomatoes and sugar. Let simmer!


1 pound of ground chuck. Sometime I like to mix meats but settled for grd. chuck.

2 eggs

1 garlic clove minced

1 tsp salt (rough estimate I eyeball all the seasoning)

¼ finely chopped onion-small onion (sometimes I use minced onion)

1 tablespoon of dried basil

¼ cup of breadcrumbs

Mix the above ingredients and form into one inch balls….eyeball size if you will.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes. Once done toss into sauce and continue to simmer. Top your favorite spaghetti pasta or worms with this delectable bloody eyeballs sauce. For the pasta I used “Garden Delight Enriched carrot, tomato & spinach pasta blend”. Delicious!

Once meal is done beware of the zombies that it attracts.

Bon Appétit!


  1. Can't wait to try!

  2. I so love the way you tell it...maybe because I am another zombie you attract ;-P
    Now I'm hungry, grrr...why can't I just be a vampire and live without food (it so hard being a zombie ready to eat anything in sight).

    1. it's so hard NOT it so hard, lol. Donde tengo la cabeza this morning...MORNING LOVE!
