Halloween Eye of Newt

Halloween deviled eggs

Double, double toil and trouble
Fire burn and cauldron bubble
Double, double toil and trouble
Something wicked this way comes

Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting
Lizard’s leg, and owlet’s wing

Double, double toil and trouble
Fire burn and cauldron bubble
Double, double toil and trouble
Something wicked this way comes

In the cauldron boil and bake
Fillet of a fenny snake,
Scale of dragon tooth of wolf
Witches mummy, maw and gulf

Double, double toil and trouble
Fire burn and cauldron bubble
Double, double toil and trouble
Fire burn and cauldron bubble
Double, double toil and trouble
Fire burn and cauldron bubble
Something wicked this way comes!

Now that I have conjured up some Harry Potter for y’all  here is a great little twist on an age old favorite. Deviled eggs made to look like the eyeballs of a lizard. It has always been tradition in the south, and my house is no different, that no party is complete without the deviled eggs. We can always count on my grandma for the deviled eggs. She makes them for everything.

These are easy to make and the kiddies and adults alike are gonna love them. I promise these will be a big hit at your next family get together.

Ingredients:

  • 12 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 pinch celery salt
  • 1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard
  • 2 drops green food coloring
  • 1 (6 ounce) can sliced black olives drained
  • Paprika

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.
  2. Bring to a boil, then cover, and remove from the heat and let stand for about 15 minutes.
  3. Rinse under cold water or add some ice to the water and let the eggs cool completely.
  4. Peel and slice in half lengthwise.
  5. Remove the yolks from the eggs and place them in a bowl.
  6. Mix in the relish, mayonnaise, celery salt, mustard, and food coloring.
  7. Spoon this filling into the egg whites and place them on a serving tray.
  8. Round the top of the filling using the spoon. Place an olive slice on each yolk to create the center of the eye.
  9. Dab a tiny bit of mayonnaise in the center of the olive as a finishing touch. Dip a knife in paprika and drag across to make the bloodshot eyes.
