The only thing I like better than Halloween is the combination of Halloween and a bad joke. So "deviled eggs" were an obvious choice. Adding food color and blood just made them a little weirder.

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
This recipe is designed for a half dozen eggs, resulting in 12 finished pieces.

6 eggs
1 tsp (or more) vegetable seasoning
a few tbsps of miracle whip or mayonnaise
mustard
red, black and green icing color (it's thicker than normal food color and has some sugar in it, but the sugar won't really be noticeable)
1 tbsp paprika
cornstarch
red pepper (for decoration)

I included sesame and poppy seeds in the picture because they would make nice rocks/gravel/other creepy Halloweenish decorations, but I decided not to use them.

If you can get vegetable seasoning from Market SpiceMarket Spice (based in Seattle) do it. It's really exceptionally tasty, and is the best thing ever to replace salt on french fries.

Step 2: Boil The Eggs

Gently place them in a pan of water.
Heat the water to boiling, stirring pretty much constantly.
Boil for 15 minutes. Keep stirring them for the first 5 to 7 minutes of that. The stirring prevents the yolk from setting off-centered in the egg, which would result in a very thin side.
Pull them out of the water (using an appropriate safe method) and place them in cold water.

Once they're cooled off - 10 or 15 minutes at least - peel off the shells. The easy way to do this is to place one on a hard surface then roll it back and forth until the shell cracks. Peel it from there - the shell should pretty much hold together. Do this to all of them (obviously).

Rinse them off to remove any other bits of eggshell.

Really, the crosses you put in should have been upside down.....

You're absolutely right. Really, after doing these, theming food is so much fun....
If your going to put them in upside down, make sure to make them longer, so they stand up and dont just look like a stick poking out. I know its obvious, but it has to be said or people wont think of it.

:D looks yummy... ill see if i can convince my mom.....
Very nice! Love the colors. Quick tip about peeling boiled eggs - they peel much easier if they are a few days old. Also makes them easier to peel if you immediately shock them in an ice water bath after removing them from the boiling water with a slotted spoon.

Yeah, I put them in cold water and didn't even think to mention that!

Wow, those are absolutely revolting!
Nice job!

I'm thinking some leg-things so it looks like the yolk filling is about to climb out and slime you would be particularly lovely, but it would take them in a different direction.

Aww, thanks! There really is no way to make Halloween food TOO gross! I can really see your idea having some really disturbing potential...
