Halloween Deviled Egg RecipeWhat comes to mind when you think of Halloween treats? Of course you have all those wonderful pumpkin recipes along with various kind of candy, but what about your savory appetizers, what are you going to make?
The following recipe is really easy, and it is a spooky twist on deviled eggs. It's my infamous deviled egg recipe with bloodshot eyes. These are eye-catching (pardon the pun) and something the grownups can enjoy while the kids are munching their candy.
We are using tuna, lemon juice, dill pickle relish and green onion to make a flavorful filling for the eggs, along with black olives to make the eye pupils. You can even add a splash of Tabasco sauce or use red decorator gel to make these spooky eyes into bloodshot eyes! If you're making these for kids, use the gel instead of the Tabasco sauce.
We like to decorate the platter with black plastic spiders but you can use any Halloween-related decorations you want, such as gummi worms or pumpkin candies. This is a protein-packed recipe so if your little Trick-or-Treaters are going to be overdosing on the Halloween candies, consider making some of these to give them some protein and nutrients too!
What You Need:What You Need: 6 hard-boiled eggs. 2 tablespoons mayonnaise. 1 tablespoon lemon juice. 2 tablespoons dill pickle relish. 1 minced green onion. 6 oz canned tuna, drained and flaked.6 pitted black olives.
How to Make Them:Peel the eggs and cut each the top off each to reveal the yolks. Remove the egg yolks and mash them in a bowl. Then stir in the mayonnaise, lemon juice, dill pickle relish, and green onion. Now mix in the tuna. Fill the egg whites with this mixture and add an olive in each one to look like the pupil of an eye.
If you want smaller portions, you can cut the eggs in half lengthwise instead, so you get double the amount of spooky eyes! Then cut the olives in half and use half an olive in each eye. We like to add some plastic spiders as the perfect garnish.
