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. 🙂
The biggest headache with deviled eggs is peeling them. Add salt to the water before boiling them. And wait until they are completely cooled before peeling them. These tips seem to help. Unfortunately, I have found that very 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 deviled eggs.
To make the spider body, cut the black olive in half. One half you will use for the body. The other half, cut into halves again. Then you will 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…
If you are worried that the olives will ruin the taste of the 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!
