I thought I’d dreamed up this idea all by myself, but a quick Google tells me otherwise. Deviled eggs! Made to look like eyes!  Deviled Egg Eyes…The perfect Halloween hors d’oeurve! I guess I can see how I wouldn’t be the first person to dream this one up. It’s not much of a stretch. Ah well. I still love how these turned out.

Deviled egg eyes are traditional deviled eggs, jazzed up with paprika paste and olives so they look just like bloodshot eyes. Halloween fun!


  • One dozen eggs and preparations for your fave deviled egg recipe (I just smash up the yolks with about 1/2 cup of mayo, about 1 tablespoon of mustard, a couple drops of tabasco, and salt and pepper to taste)
  • Green food coloring
  • Blue food coloring
  • Ziploc baggies
  • Black olives
  • Paprika
  • Toothpick


  • Slice hard boiled eggs in half and mash yolks using your favorite deviled eggs recipe
  • Add three or four drops of green food coloring
  • Spoon half the yolk mixture into a Ziploc bag (or a pastry bag)
  • Cut off the tip of the bag
  • Pipe into egg halves by the pair.
  • Mix three or four blue drops to the remaining yolk mixture.
  • Spoon into a new Ziploc bag, cut off the tip, and pipe yolk mixture into remaining pairs.
  • Cut the sides of the black olives so that they're fairly round
  • Place them in the center of the deviled eggs (to look like pupils).
  • Pour some paprika onto a plate and wet with enough water to make a paste.
  • Using a toothpick, lightly draw on a few veins here and there.
