Halloween will be here in a few weeks and it’s a time of celebration and fun! This year I am adapting deviled eggs for monster fun. Use your favorite deviled egg recipe or try this one. If you want a gross monster look, add a few drops of green food coloring to the egg yolk filling. I’m not crazy about food coloring, but I am showing you my result. The amount of coloring is up to you. I think they’re still fun with the traditional yellow filling. Cut your eggs in half lengthwise and fill.
Now comes the fun part. Add red squiggles to the white of the eye using tomato paste or thick ketchup. I drew them with a toothpick but you could pipe them on. Push sliced black olives in the middle of the green iris and you’re done. Bloody eyes for appetizers.
It makes a fun centerpiece for a seasonal get together with a few pieces of veggies to make a face. I used a pair of deviled eyes, a nose of grape tomato, and a lettuce mouth with grape tomatoes for teeth. Pepper or celery slices would also make a great mouth. Surround the centerpiece with a plate of eyes, crackers, chips, veggies, and maybe my spider pepper on green artichoke spinach hummus. Fun and tasty!
