Something fun around the Halloween/Day of the Dead.
Hard boil eggs. Use straws to "punch out" eyes, nose teeth in egg white, then either serve them as hard boiled eggs, or cut in half and make deviled egg mix to fill them and close them back up! Just something fun and cute for the table around Halloween time!

Place a few tablespoons of ketchup in a ziplock bag and snip the edge, so that there is a small hole in the end. Add bloodshot lines with the ketchup, starting from the center going out toward the edge.
Literally... deviled eggs! These little devils will be memorable with their spicy kick and adorable little faces. Sriracha is the key to heat in this recipe, but you can use any red hot sauce you like.

I am looking for Halloween themed deviled egg ideas.

Try a slice of pimento stuffed olive in the center to look like a green and red iris, or maybe a pickle slice with a pimento center and thin strips of pimento running from the center out for blood-shot eyes. Use dill pieces inserted in the sides of the egg half with black olive slices(2) for black eyed spiders.
Boil eggs. Place hard boiled eggs in ice cold water until cooled. Tint a bowl of hot water with red food coloring. Gently crack eggs, don't peel, and place in red water for 30 minutes. Then peel. They will look like they veins. I used green stuffed olives for the pupils. I think this recipe is from the family fun website. Good luck!
I am doing blood shot eyes when I boil the eggs. I pour off the hot water then roll the eggs against the pot kind of hard to crack them at odd places then I add red food coloring to the water but I use warm water and let them set for about 30 minutes then I but them in into clean cold water for easier peeling and I use the little sweet pickles sliced real thin on some and olives on others.

Scoop egg yolks out of egg halves. Mix the yolks with the other ingredients (except the hard boiled whites and green olives).
