Spooky spider deviled eggs

Spooky spider deviled eggs

My mum and I made these spooky spider deviled eggs last year for our Halloween party. It was very successful and quite easy to make, everybody loved them!  These don’t have any dairy in them but you can add soured crème or crème fraîche to it if you like (or instead of mayo). Adults might like a drop of Tabsaco or a few pinches of cayenne pepper in the yolk mixture!

You’ll need:

  • 12 eggs
  • 5 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsps Dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Pitted whole black olives
  • Lemon juice

This is what to do:

  1. Put the eggs in a pan, cover with cold water and cook until the water starts boiling. Then put a cover on,  turn off the heat and let the eggs cook for 6 minutes. Rinse the eggs under cold water then take the shells off gently with your fingers. Let them cool.
  2. Cut the eggs in half and spoon out the egg yolk into a bowl. Add the mustard, mayo, salt & pepper. Mash with a fork until smooth. Taste it, and add enough lemon juice to your liking. Also, you can add more mayo, mustard or seasoning. Adults can add a pinch of chilli pepper or a drop of Tabasco too!
  3. Fill the egg whites with the mashed egg yolk, using a teaspoon.
  4. Cut the olives in half lengthwise. Put one half on the mashed yolk for the spider’s body. Thinly slice the other half of the olive to make  spiders legs. Put four legs on each side ( not two like I did on the picture!).

Enjoy your spooky spider deviled eggs!
