    Serves: 12 

    • 12 eggs
    • 1 tablespoon gherkin relish (or chopped pickles)
    • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 2 drops green food colouring, or as needed
    • sliced black olives, to decorate
    • 1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Place all of the eggs into a large pot so they can rest on the bottom in a single layer. Fill with just enough cold water to cover the eggs. Bring to a boil, then cover, remove from the heat and let stand for about 15 minutes. Rinse under cold water or add some ice to the water and let the eggs cool completely. Peel and slice in half lengthwise.
    2. Remove the yolks from the eggs and place them in a bowl. Mix in the relish, mayonnaise, salt and food colouring. Spoon this filling back into the egg whites and place them on a serving tray. Round the top of the filling using the spoon.
    3. Place an olive slice on each yolk to create the centre of the eye. With a toothpick, dab a tiny bit of mustard in the centre of the olive as a finishing touch.

    The photo of this dish is the one I submitted. It was a hit at our neighborhood adult Halloween party. I added bloodshot eyes by dipping a knife in paprika and lightly touching the eyes. I found the recipe to be a little too dry and added a couple more tablespoons of mayo. I also colored the mayo yellow for the spot in the middle of the eye.  -  31 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These are really adorable and fairly easy to make. Only suggestion is, to use BLUE food coloring, and not green. We put in 10+ drops of green and it didn't change color. My daughter said, "yellow eggs and blue food coloring will do the trick", and sure enough, it did!  -  29 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Great presentation on the party table. Did not use relish and used Miracle Whip instead of mayo plus some additional spices. Use black olives and green olives with red pimento. Tucked the small green olives inside the black olives - nice and spooky!  -  28 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
