Bubble, bubble. Toil and trouble. This appetizer is commonly known and used but, I have put my own little twist on this recipe. It is deviled eggs made to look like the eyeballs of a lizard. It a hit with the kids at my Halloween party. Watch them get eaten up at your party!

Directions

  1. Place all of the eggs into a large pot so they can rest on the bottom in a single layer. Fill with just enough cold water to cover the eggs. Bring to a boil, then cover, remove from the heat and let stand for about 15 minutes. Rinse under cold water or add some ice to the water and let the eggs cool completely. Peel and slice in half lengthwise.
  2. Remove the yolks from the eggs and place them in a bowl. Mix in the relish, mayonnaise, celery salt, mustard, and food coloring. Spoon this filling into the egg whites and place them on a serving tray. Round the top of the filling using the spoon. Place an olive slice on each yolk to create the center of the eye. Dab a tiny bit of mayonnaise in the center of the olive as a finishing touch.

The photo of this dish is the one I submitted. It was a hit at our neighborhood adult Halloween party. I added bloodshot eyes by dipping a knife in paprika and lightly touching the eyes. I found the recipe to be a little too dry and added a couple more tablespoons of mayo. I also colored the mayo yellow for the spot in the middle of the eye.

These are really adorable and fairly easy to make. Only suggestion is, to use BLUE food coloring, and not green. We put in 10+ drops of green and it didn't change color. My daughter said, "yellow eggs and blue food coloring will do the trick", and sure enough, it did! :)

Great presentation on the party table. Did not use relish and used Miracle Whip instead of mayo plus some additional spices. Use black olives and green olives with red pimento. Tucked the small green olives inside the black olives - nice and spooky!
