Spooky Deviled Eggs - 2 recipes



We love serving deviled eggs as an appetizer and these Spooky Deviled Eggs are just in time for Halloween!  I wanted to make two kinds of deviled eggs: one is the more traditional deviled eggs stuffed with a mixture of egg yolks, mayo and spices and the other is stuffed with our favorite lemony tuna fish filling, both topped with cute little spooky eyes and black spiders using green and black olives.


Deviled eggs are a great way to serve your guests something gluten-free. They're high in protein, easy to prepare using simple ingredients and taste delicious.


They are fun to serve as an appetizer at a Halloween party. In fact, I made these as an appetizer before dinner for friends who are staying with us this week and I will be making them again for a Halloween party we're attending this weekend.

It should be Spook-tacular!


Have a lovely and Spooky weekend! 
Happy Halloween everyone!

                                            Enjoy!



Spooky Deviled Eggs - 2 recipes (total 6 eggs, serves 12)

Cut eggs in half lengthwise. Slip out yolks and set aside to mash for the 2nd half of traditional deviled (spooky evil eyes) eggs.

Stuff each egg with the tuna fish mixture.
Cut the whole black olive in half.  Put one half on the tuna mixture for the spider body.
Thinly slice the other half for the spider legs, placing 3 or 4 legs on each side.

We can't believe it's Halloween- can you? ... and where did the time go?  We have been traveling back and forth between Charleston and New York, so many festivities and family functions, all good!
We hope you are enjoying the fall as much as we are.  Wishing you all a great weekend and Happy Halloween!
