These Spider Deviled Eggs make fantastic Halloween party food.
Make this spooky Halloween recipe tasty crowd pleaser.
They are easy and inexpensive to make.
I don't know about your family, but my family loves deviled eggs.
And if you can make them creepy for Halloween, all the better, right?
My daughter took one look at these creepy Halloween Spider Deviled Eggs and said, "Oh wow, cool mom."
It is a very, very rare occasion that I am considered cool from my teenage daughter. But I love it when she thinks I am.
You should make them too! Then you can be cool like me...ha! ha!
How to peel a boiled egg
The biggest headache with deviled eggs is peeling the boiled eggs. Here are some tips to make peeling boiled eggs easier.
- Add salt to the water before boiling them.
- Shock your boiled eggs in cold water by removing them from the hot water and dropping them in an iced cold water bath.
- Wait wait until the eggs are completely cooled before peeling them.
- Peel the boiled eggs under water. The water seeps under the thin film that clings to the whites and helps release the shell.
- Unfortunately, fresh eggs seem to stick to their shell the worse. I use those beautiful fresh farm eggs for other dishes to cook in, not for spider deviled eggs.
How to make the spider body
- Make the spider body, cut the black olive in half. One half you will use for the body.
- One half you will use for the body. The other half, cut into halves again.
- Next take each half and cut them into threes for the legs.
I know, I know, spiders have eight legs. Well, my spiders have six legs.
If you want to cut each halves into fours, go for it. There just isn't much room on the egg for eight legs…
Do olives taste good on eggs?
If you are worried that the olives will ruin the taste of the spider deviled eggs, don't.
The olives taste great on the eggs. So have a little fun.
Play with your food. Get creepy in the kitchen. It is Halloween season.
It is the perfect time to serve something a little scary!
How long will they keep in the refrigerator?
Store leftover (if you have any) deviled eggs in the refrigerator. They should be consumed within 2 days from making them.
