  • Half of the olive will be spider body. Take other half of olive and cut it again into half. Take each half and cut into threes or fours to make spider legs. Assemble spider on egg.

The biggest headache  with deviled eggs is peeling them. Add salt to the water before boiling them. 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 spider deviled eggs.
