Have you decided your Halloween menu this year? These scary eyeball deviled eggs are a must try.

I’m so in love with these gruesome bloodshot eyeballs! Even though I made them, I still shuddered a bit when I ate one. They’re the perfect texture to convince people that they’re eating EYEBALLS!

My only piece of advice is to pay close attention to the food dye that you use as some of them are crazy high in carbs and the amount that you use will really depend on the quality of your dye.

Also, I suggest that you boil an extra couple of eggs, as there will inevitably be one or two that break. Clearly, I learned this from experience. Enjoy!

Tips for Natural Food Dye

If you can't find a good natural food dye, you can use a combination of beetroot (pink) with turmeric (yellow) to create the perfect red. To do that, simply blend one beetroot with a small piece of turmeric or 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder, and about 2 cups (480 ml) of water. Then add boiling water, enough to submerge the eggs.

For black natural food dye used in the egg yolk filling, use some squid cuttlefish ink or squid cuttlefish powder or activated charcoal powder.

Ingredients (makes 12 deviled eggs)

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp natural red food dye (15 ml)
  • 1/4 cup paleo mayonnaise (55 g/ 1.9 oz) - you can make your own mayo
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp natural black food dye (15 ml)

Instructions

  1. To boil the eggs, place them in a pot and fill with water covering them by an inch. Bring to a boil over high heat. Once the water starts boiling, turn off the heat and cover with a lid. Remove from the burner and keep the eggs covered in the pot for 13 minutes (10 minutes for medium sized eggs, 15 minutes for extra large eggs).
  2. When done, transfer to a bowl filled with ice water and let them sit for 5 minutes. Fresh eggs don't peel well. It's better if you use eggs that you bought 7-10 days before cooking. Halloween Eyeball Deviled Eggs
  3. Gently tap the cold hard-boiled eggs on the bench to crack them all over.

  7. Pipe, using a round nozzle if possible, the egg mixture into the egg halves.
