Deviled Egg Eyes

I thought I'd dreamed up this idea all by myself, but a quick Google tells me otherwise. Deviled eggs! Made to look like eyes! The perfect Halloween hors d'oeurve! I guess I can see how I wouldn't be the first person to dream this one up. It's not much of a stretch. Ah well. I still love how these turned out.

Here's how:

Deviled Egg Eyes

  • One dozen eggs and preparations for your fave deviled egg recipe (I just smash up the yolks with about 1/2 cup of mayo, about 1 tablespoon of mustard, a couple drops of tabasco, and salt and pepper to taste)
  • Green food coloring
  • Blue food coloring
  • Ziploc baggies
  • Black olives
  • Paprika
  • Toothpick

Instructions:

  1. Slice hard boiled eggs in half and mash yolks using your favorite recipe
  2. Add three or four drops of green food coloring
  3. Spoon half the yolk mixture into a Ziploc bag (or a pastry bag)
  4. Cut off the tip of the bag
  5. Pipe into egg halves by the pair
    Pipe the stuff into the eyes
  6. Mix three or four blue drops to the remaining yolk mixture
  7. Spoon into a new Ziploc bag, cut off the tip, and pipe yolk mixture into remaining pairs
  8. Cut the sides of the black olives so that they're fairly round (my guy was so good at this, I had him cut them all. Boy, was he thrilled!)

    Cutting the pupils

  9. Place them in the center of the deviled eggs like pupils
  10. Pour some paprika onto a plate and wet with enough water to make a paste

    Paprika paste for eye veins

  11. Using a toothpick, lightly draw on a few veins here and there

That's it. Deviled eggs that are outta sight!
