Spider Eggs {Deviled Eggs with Olives}

16 Oct

Today I wanted to bring you all another Halloween recipe with Spider Eggs. Sounds gross at first, right? But look at them…who knew spiders could be so precious? These would be such a fun treat to make with your kids then serve at your Halloween party. They would take such pride in helping assemble them and would be more likely to give them a try (if you have picky eaters on your hands). And they will be a hit with the adults too! They are a great appetizer to start out your Halloween themed meal.

Spider Eggs

12 eggs, hardboiled*
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. mustard
salt and pepper to taste
36 black olives

1. Remove shells from eggs and slice in half lengthwise. Remove yolks and place them in a food processor. Process until crumbly then add in mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper. Process until smooth. Taste and add more of any ingredient to fit your tastes (this is how I do it, I don’t measure).
2. Spoon or pipe mixture into egg halves.
3. Slice 12 olives in half. Lay one half in the middle of each egg. Slice remaining olives in half, then slice each half into 4 strips. Lay 4 strips on each side of the halved olives that have been placed on the eggs.

*Keys to perfect hardboiled eggs: Place the eggs in a pot then cover with cold water; cover pot with a lid. Bring to a boil then immediately turn off the burner. Leave them for 15 minutes. Then run them under cold water or place in an ice bath to stop the cooking process. This method will result in perfectly hardboiled eggs every time!
