Today I wanted to bring you all another Halloween recipe with Spider Eggs. Sounds gross at first, right? But look at them…who knew spiders could be so precious?
These would be such a fun treat to make with your kids then serve at your Halloween party. They would take such pride in helping assemble them and would be more likely to give them a try (if you have picky eaters on your hands). And they will be a hit with the adults too! They are a great appetizer to start out your Halloween themed meal.
Before we get to the recipe, let me tell you some tips for making the perfect hard boiled egg. First, place the eggs in a pot then cover them with cold water. Cover the pot with a lid. Bring the water to a boil then immediately turn off the burner and remove from the heat.
Leave them, covered, for 15 minutes. Then run them under cold water or place in an ice bath to stop the cooking process. This method will result in perfectly hard boiled eggs every single time friends.
- 12 hardboiled eggs
- 1/4 cup mayo
- 1 tsp. yellow mustard
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 36 large black olives
Remove shells from eggs and slice in half lengthwise. Remove yolks and place them in a food processor. Process until crumbly then add in mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper. Process until smooth. Taste and add more of any ingredient to fit your tastes.
Spoon or pipe mixture into egg halves.
Slice 12 olives in half. Lay one half in the middle of each egg. Slice remaining olives in half, then slice each half into 4 strips. Lay 4 strips on each side of the halved olives that have been placed on the eggs.
