Halloween-Inspired Green Eggs With Spiderwebs (No Food Colouring)

About: Born in Pluto, Raised in Mars

This original recipe is a fusion halloween themed dish combining the devilled eggs and tea eggs to produced a spiderwebbed egg with a creamy green guacamole egg filling.

Step 1: Ingredients

Firstly, the star of the dish:

Eggs

Liquid

English Breakfast Tea

Soy Sauce

[Optional] Spicy Peppers

Filling

  • Avocado
  • Mayonnaise
  • Paprika
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Kitchen Supplies

  • Chopping Board and Knife
  • Pot
  • Spoon
  • [Optional] Food processor
  • Ziplock bag or Piping bag

Step 2: Boil the Eggs

We want to make hardboiled eggs for this recipe. The technique I use to make perfect hardboiled eggs each time is to use a timer.

  1. Fill the pot with water and bring the heat up to maximum, then carefully place the eggs in so as not to crack them.
  2. Once the water is fully boiling (vigorously bubbling), bring the heat down to medium and set the timer for 5 minutes.
  3. After 5 minutes, you now have perfect hardboiled eggs. Drain the water to prevent it from overcooking.

Step 3: Cool the Eggs

Before we steep the eggs, we need to let it cool first under a stream of cold water.

Step 4: Prepare the Tea Bath

Boil some water and fill up any large container with it to make our tea.

I used the following ratios:

  • 2 cups of water
  • 3 bags of English Breakfast Tea
  • 2 teaspoon of soy sauce

Step 5: 'Crack' the Eggs

There's multiple ways of going about this, but here are my 2 preferred methods.

You can first crack the egg on an edge and then roll them on a flat surface until you get a web-y crack pattern.

Or, just keep hitting the egg with the back of the spoon on all sides (which is what I did here)

Step 6: Steep the Eggs

You should steep the eggs in the tea bath for at least 8 hours, around 12 hours is best.
If you want a lightly coloured egg, then you can do it for less time. On the contrary, if you want it more contrasted and darker, steep it longer.

Step 7: Peel the Eggs

Once the eggs are done steeping, carefully peel the eggs and cut it lengthwise.

Scoop out the egg yolks, we'll need it for the filling.

Step 8: Making the Filling

We use Avocados to make the filling green and extremely creamy. Here's the ratios I used:

  • 2 Avocados
  • 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • 4 Egg Yolks
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika

I found it easiest to scoop out the avocados with a spoon, once sliced in half lengthwise.

Then I put all the ingredients in a food processor to mix the filling ingredients. You don't have to use a food processor -- you can just mash the avocado first and then mix it in if you don't have one.

Step 9: Pipe the Filling and Enjoy!

Put the filling to a piping bag, if you don't have one just use a ziplock bag like I did and snip out a small piece from the corner.

Then start filling the core of the egg where the yolk used to be with your filling. Voila, you're done!

Step 10: Enjoy!

Enjoy your bite-size halloween-themed snacks!
