Spooky Monster Eyes Deviled Eggs for Halloween

There’s nothing more fun for Halloween than spooky looking foods.  These Monster Eyes Deviled Eggs are perfect for a Halloween party or for dinner before trick or treating.

I was brainstorming (ie: googling) for Halloween inspired foods, and came across this recipe for Avocado Deviled Eggs over at The Spinach Spot.  My kids love boiled eggs as a snack or with their lunches, and they especially love deviled eggs.  I thought these Monster Eye Halloween Deviled Eggs would make a perfectly spooky snack for my little ones.

Of course, I obviously changed up the recipe just a bit to fit my needs…  (my spooky needs, lol)

Monster Eyes Deviled Eggs

One thing to keep in mind for avocado deviled eggs is: the riper the avocado, the better.  My avocados weren’t that ripe, so I had to add a bit of mayo to get to the desired creaminess.  But with a ripe avocado, this will not be necessary.

I saw pimientos when I was at the store and now I kind of wish I had bought them to put inside the olives.  (Can you picture little red pimientos inside the olives?) No biggie though, these monster eye deviled eggs are still perfectly ghoulish.  Bwah-ha-ha-ha…

And of course, I use Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs. (Want to try these pasteurized in the shell eggs? Click here for the store locator and here for a coupon.)
