Deviled Eggs for Halloween

Deviled Eggs for Halloween

Deviled Eggs are so easy to make and so versatile.  There are many different ways you can combine ingredients to make them taste different.  Today’s post is going to use a deviled egg recipe that was previously posted here at Patty Cake’s Pantry as the base, but we are going to make a few changes to the finished product to produce something a little more creepy for Halloween.  The first thing that you need to do is whip a batch of deviled eggs.

The two easiest ways to make these into a Halloween treat involve the use of olives.

Cut a pimento sliced olive in halfThe easiest way is to slice a pimento stuffed olive in half and place a half, cut side up on the top of each deviled egg.

olives transform ordinary deviled eggs into eyeballsPush the olive into the deviled egg filling until the cut side is flush with the filling.  This creates the illusion of a large eye, and the saltiness of the olive adds something extra to the flavor of the deviled egg.  To take things a step further, you can even draw blood vessels with red food coloring onto the white of the egg to give the illusion of a blood shot eye.  With or without the red lines,  this is my favorite way to “dress up” my deviled eggs for Halloween.

spider topped eggsThe second way to dress up deviled eggs is to use a black olive.  Slice it in half lengthwise, then slice the remaining half into half lengthwise then slice it into eight slivers.  Place the half, cut side down, onto the center of the deviled egg and arrange the slivers, four on each side as legs on your spider.

These variations on deviled eggs are  fun, festive, and a little bit creepy.  You can use your favorite deviled egg recipe or you can try ours.
