Eye of Newt Deviled Eggs

I made this for a Halloween Party and it was a hit.  Some were a bit grossed out and would not touch it, which was a very comical thing.

A tip for easy peeling; add some oil to the water when boiling the eggs and the shells will come off with ease.

(makes 20 eyeballs)


10 large eggs, hard boiled
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon sour cream
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1 teaspoon vinegar
1-2 teaspoons hot sauce (your favorite kind)
Salt and Pepper to taste
green food coloring

Sliced olives
Diced pimiento

Red food coloring


Peel and halve hard boiled eggs lengthwise and remove yolks. Place yolks in a bowl along with mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard, vinegar and hot sauce. With the immersion blender mix everything to desired consistency (you can use a fork and mash if you don’t have a blender). Season with salt and pepper. Color egg yolk mixture  green food color until desired color is reached. Pipe egg mixture back into egg halves. Garnish each egg halve with 1 sliced olive, 1 diced pimiento placed inside the olive. Add red food coloring with a toothpick for the blood-shot eye effect.
