Blogger Kaylee Vaughn shows us how to make a spooky snack with these homemade Halloween deviled egg mummies!
I’m always looking for new ways to use our farm fresh eggs! Deviled eggs are a favorite snack in our house and they also make a great appetizer to share with family and friends during parties and gatherings!
For a special Halloween snack, I wanted to whip up something “eggstra” fun! Which led to the creation of these deviled egg mummies! These Halloween deviled eggs are easy to make and only require a handful of ingredients which are already on-hand in most kitchens! They make a great spooky snack for kids and adults alike! Plus, you get to use those delicious farm fresh eggs from your chickens!
Here’s how to make your own Halloween Deviled Egg Mummies!
- 12 hard-boiled eggs
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tbs white vinegar
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp pepper
- Pickles or black olives (for eyes)
- Peel hard-boiled eggs. (Set shells aside for compost pile or to free-feed back to your chickens for a calcium-rich snack!)
- Cut eggs in half length-wise.
- Remove yolks and place them in a bowl. Set egg white halves aside.
- Add mayonnaise, vinegar and seasonings to the bowl with the egg whites.
- Mix thoroughly until yolk mixture is smooth and creamy.
- Fill one half of the egg white with yolk mixture.
- Place the other half of the egg white on a flat surface, rounded side up. Using a sharp knife, cut the egg white into offset strips, similar to the picture below.
- Place the strips onto the filled egg in an overlapping fashion until you are happy with their placement. You will only need to use about half of the strips that you cut.
- To create the eyes, cut small squares from either pickles or black olives. Gently push them into the yolk mixture in the desired spot.
Chill before serving. Yields 6 deviled egg mummies.
