Creepy Deviled Eyeballs

My daughter woke up bright and early this morning. She said she was going to a party and wanted to make Halloween Cheesecake Pops and Deviled Eyeballs. Okay, no problem. How do you make Deviled Eyeballs was the question? She quickly showed me the recipe and was off to the store to gather the ingredients. She got the recipe here at Divine Dinner Party.


Creepy Deviled Eyeballs

12 hard boiled eggs
1/2 C. mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
2 green onions, finely minced
1 tsp. dried parsley flakes
1/2 tsp. dry ground mustard
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
blue food coloring, as needed
red paste food coloring, as needed
24 slices of black olives
pimentos or fresh red peppers

Peel the hard boiled eggs and slice in half lengthwise. Scoop the yolks out into a medium bowl and reserve the whites until needed.

With the back of a fork, mash the yolks until smooth.

Add mayo, onions, parsley, mustard, salt, paprika, and garlic powder. Mix well.

Add a few drops of blue food coloring to turn the yellow mixture a soft green.

Spoon green yolk mixture into the cavity in each white half, dividing evenly.
On top of each yolk filling, place one black olive slice. Add a small piece of pimento or red pepper for the pupil.

With a toothpick dipped in red food coloring paste, draw red veins on egg white's surface.
Cover and chill until ready to serve.

  4. These are really cute - in a creepy sort of way. It's a great fright night appetizer. They would also be a great extender for a Halloween buffet. Did your daughter's friends like them?
