Eerie and Easy Deviled Egg Eyeballs

Who doesn’t love a classic deviled egg? Kick up the fright factor a bit with these inexpensive and easy Halloween appetizers. 

The classic deviled egg recipe gets a creepy cool makeover to disguise them as the ultimate Halloween bite. They’re sure to be a hit with all of your ghoulish guests!


1 dozen eggs

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup mustard

1 can sliced black olives, drained

Blue food coloring

Hot sauce


Fill up a large saucepan half-way with water and gently add the eggs. Cover eggs with at least 1 inch of water and add a pinch of salt. Bring the water to a boil, cover, and remove from heat. Let sit covered for 12-15 minutes. Drain hot water from pan and run cold water over the eggs. Let sit in the cool water a few minutes, changing the water if necessary to keep it cool.

Peel the eggs and slice each egg in half lengthwise. Gently remove the yolk halves and place in a small bowl. Add mayonnaise and mustard and mix until creamy. Add a couple of drops of blue food coloring to yolk to make a green hue for the eyeballs.

Arrange the egg white halves on a serving platter and distribute yolk mixture evenly. Top each deviled egg with a sliced black olive in the center.

Take a toothpick and draw your hot sauce lightly on the egg white in a squiggly line to make veins. Add a drop of hot sauce in center of olive to make the red middle.
