There is just something about Halloween that I love. I guess it brings out the kid in me no matter how old I am.
My daughter is the same way. Halloween ranks right up there with Christmas as far as our favorite time of the year. I mean once September 1st rolls around I am digging through decorations and picking out scary movies to watch.
My husband tried to tell me that I shouldn't do that until October 1st.
I am sorry, I don't need that negativity in my life!
Don't mess with my spooky season man!!
But, aside from the decor and the movies, I love coming up with creepy, fun, food.
I realized that I have some recipes here from before I went low carb, but nothing after. Shame on me!! So I decided to get a sweet recipe and a savory recipe on the blog ASAP. The sweet one will be coming next week, I promise.
This is just a fun one I l like to make with the grandkids.
My photographer said her son liked it as well.
Not only did he decide these look like dinosaur eggs, he snuck one off the tray before she could get the photos done and proclaimed these were the best deviled eggs he had ever had.
I will take that endorsement!
So you don't have to take my word that these are good, take his word and make these Halloween Deviled Eggs ASAP!!
INGREDIENTS NEEDED TO MAKE HALLOWEEN DEVILED EGGS
Detailed measurements and instructions can be found on the printable recipe card at the bottom of the page.INGREDIENTS
- Hard-boiled eggs

HOW TO MAKE HALLOWEEN DEVILED EGGS
In a large bowl add the hot water, black food color (you don't want to be able to see through the water), and vinegar. Stir to combine well and allow the gel color to mix. Add the eggs and allow them to sit for at least 1 hour.
Use a slotted spoon to remove the eggs and carefully peel the shells away. Once all of the eggs are peeled, cut each egg in half, placing the cooked yolks in a medium bowl. Arrange egg white halves on a plate.
In a small bowl, place egg yolks and the avocado, and mash until smooth.
Stir in mayo, mustard, pickle brine, salt, and pepper, and mix thoroughly.
Spoon into egg white shells, dividing equally.
Arrange on a serving plate. Cover lightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 3 hours. (Don't serve long after 3 hours or the avocado will start to brown)
Garnish with black sesame seeds if using.
FAQS ABOUT HALLOWEEN DEVILED EGGS
Can I make these Halloween Deviled Eggs ahead of time for a party?
You can make them about 3 hours ahead of time but any longer than that and the avocado might begin to brown.
Can I add food coloring to the filling to make it a brighter green?
Yes, you can. I just chose to avoid food coloring if at all possible so that is why I used the filling from my avocado deviled eggs for these. But you are welcome to use whatever coloring you want for your filling.
How long will these Halloween Deviled Eggs last in the fridge?
I wouldn't keep them much longer than 3 days. Make sure they are stored in an airtight container.
Last thoughts about Halloween Deviled Eggs
If you like creepy food as much as I do you can make these Halloween Deviled Eggs a few more ways to up the creepiness factor.
You can add beet juice, or red dye to the filling and then make a spider out of black olives.
Or make the filling blueish and cut a pimento-stuffed olive in half. Then place it on top of the deviled egg and it looks like a blood shit eyeball.
See, creep factor for the win!
