This will be showing back up on my Halloween buffet on Sunday night. I'm staying home this year... well that's the plan right now at least. Making and enjoying some yummy treats, watching my favorite Zombie movie, and passing out goodies to the whippersnappers.
Shelly's Deviled Egg Spiders
Hard cooked Eggs
Jumbo Black Olives
Ingredients for Egg Salad
To assemble the Deviled Egg Spiders: slice a black olive in half lengthwise that will become the body. Then cut the other half crosswise into thin slices to form the 8 creepy legs.
How I hard cook eggs: Place eggs in pot. Fill pot with cold water till 1" over eggs. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and cook for 20 minutes. Pour off hot water and cover eggs with very cold water. This is an extremely important step which prevents the greenish ring you sometimes see on yolks. When eggs are cool enough to handle. Crack & peel away shell. Chill.
Shelly's Simple Egg Salad
1 Tablespoon of Mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon of Greek Yogurt
1 Tablespoon Sweet Pickle Relish
dash Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper
Hard cook the eggs. Slice in half. Pop yolks out into a bowl and chill. Set aside whites. When chilled (15 minutes or so) mix yolks, mayo, yogurt, relish and seasonings together till well blended. Spoon mixture back into whites.
