How to Make Halloween Deviled Eggs
The part of this recipe that people tend to get nervous about is boiling the eggs! Once you know how to boil hard boil eggs, you’re basically in the clear. Not only for this recipe but be sure to take notes for breakfast ideas too!
Once they’re cooked and peeled, they’re sliced in half vertically and the yolk gets scooped out. Make the delicious filling by combining the remaining ingredients with the yolk and fill the egg whites back up again with the mixture. It is SO GOOD!
Make Extra Hardboiled Eggs!
While you’re at it, throw in a few extra. Not just in case one or two don’t peel nicely (although, that’s the main reason), but because they make a great snack!
The presentation of these Halloween deviled eggs is the focus of this recipe, so we’re using the classic ingredients. If you are up to jazzing up the mixture a bit with additional flavors, it’s totally doable!
- Bacon ranch deviled eggs are always a hit.
- Add a bit of spice with cayenne, jalapeno, or horseradish.
- For a less sweet version, swap the sweet relish for dill.
- Play around with seasonings and add the ones you like. A little extra paprika, garlic powder, everything bagel seasoning, etc.
Adorable Halloween Deviled Egg Ideas!
- Spiders: Slice pitted black olives in half. Place one half on top of the egg mixture, shell side up, and use the other half to thinly slice 8 legs, placing 4 along each side of the first half.
- Pumpkins: Super cute, place a little piece of chive at the top of one end of the center orange portion (the yolk) to act as the stem. For a little extra something, use a toothpick to create vertical lines down the “pumpkin” for effect.
If you’re making these ahead of time, make the deviled eggs first. Then add the spider and pumpkin presentation just before serving.
- The fresher the eggs, the easier they are to peel. You want the peel to come away as cleanly as possible without taking any of the egg white with it.
- Some people find adding a bit of vinegar to their boiling water helpful in softening the peel.
- To save time, boil eggs ahead of time, even the night before. That way they’re ready to go when you are.
- Use a piping bag for neater dollops of the egg yolk mixture. It’s not a must but makes for a pretty presentation for the pumpkin eggs. The spiders will hide theirs anyway!
Any leftover deviled eggs can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Hard-boiled eggs will also keep stored for up to 3 days if you’re planning ahead.
