Spooky Deviled Eggs
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 Spooky 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 Halloween 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 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.

- Peel eggs and cut in half, lengthwise. Scoop out yolks.

- Season with salt and pepper.
- Add a tiny bit of red food coloring to a spoon and using the paintbrush, “paint” the red bloodshot eyes onto the eggs.
