31 Days of Halloween – Day 29
A Halloween party is not complete without deviled eggs.
We made spider eggs last week for the Halloween party. Today we decided to play around with the bloodshot look, and this is what we ended up making. We call them deviled zombie eyes. I didn’t have enough red food color to get that total red bloodshot look, so I used black food color instead. The veins turned out well, and black color gave the eggs a ghostly look.
- 6 eggs
- 1 ounce McCormick black food color
- teaspoon red wine vinegar
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- Salt & pepper to taste
- slices of black or green olives
- Put eggs in a medium saucepan and cover with water and half the food color. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and boil for ten minutes. Remove eggs from hot water and place on paper towels to drain.
- With the back of a spoon, gently tap egg at each end and on the sides. In a medium bowl, add eggs, the remaining food color, and enough cold water to cover the eggs. Refrigerate for 3 hours.
- Remove eggs from water and remove shell. Cut each egg in half. Put the yolks in a bowl and mash them with a fork. Add vinegar and mayonnaise and mix thoroughly. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Fill each egg white half with the yolk mixture, about 1 teaspoon per half. Add one olive slice to the top of each egg. Refrigerate until served.
