This tasty appetizer is commonly known, but my version is spooky for Halloween. Deviled eggs made to look like bloodshot eyeballs! All you need are green olives, spices, eggs, and your favorite condiment to mix in! Deviled egg eyeballs a favorite with the kids (and adults) at Halloween parties but also easy to make and healthy!
Have I spooked you? Haha, I hope not! Well, unless it’s a good thing, because it’s SCARY how good these deviled egg eyeball appetizers and treats are. Okay, my puns are over, but stay with me till then end so I can share the recipe!
So, can I let you in on a secret? I love Halloween for the fun treats and parties, but the actual Holiday itself still scares me. Yep, I grew up with three older brothers who would taunt me with Freddy Krueger and Chucky the Killer doll sound effects. Needless to say, after the age of 10, I could not look at my dolls the same, nor could I keep the lights off in my room. 22 years later, I still have a closet light on. Come on, I know you’re the same. Haha!

How to Make Deviled Egg Eyeballs
This deviled egg recipe is actually an old family favorite recipe. Not the eyeball looking part, but the recipe itself. So don’t tell my great great grandma I let you in on the secret.
- Scoop out the yolk from cooked hard boiled eggs and place in a bowl.
- Mix in the rest of your ingredients, except the paprika and olives.
- Taste and see if it’s salty enough, if not, add a dash more salt or even pickle juice.
- Mix until smooth then spoon the egg yolk mix into your egg white halves.
- Smooth the the surface of the egg and then place the olive with the pimento sticking up. Now it will look like the eye pupil.
Protein packed and full of healthy fats, yes –> I’m going to trick you into eating healthy! Boo! And don’t worry, there’s another option for the paleo mayo if you aren’t a mayo person. The olives are a must though! Black or green will work.Print
So tell me, did your siblings taunt you as a kid?
