Eerie Alien Eggs - Halloween Deviled Eggs

Guys. It's the Sunday before Halloween and my costume STILL has not come in the mail. I am freaking out. I've even been to one costume party so far WITHOUT A COSTUME... alright, I threw together a "vampire/girl-going-through-a-Hot-Topic-stage" ensemble, but it's just not the same. When you're a Halloween fanatic like I am, this is a BIG DEAL.

Note to self: Spirit Halloween's online ordering is a bit off when they say "two day shipping"--it's really "week-and-a-half" shipping. Grr.

Anyway, I'm finding myself in the Halloweeny spirit regardless of the mail goblins eating all my mail lately (MY CAMERA STILL HAS NOT ARRIVED). I thought I'd re-do these awesome Alien Eggs I made last year. Remember them?

Yeah, my photography skills have improved just a wee bit.

These are basically just deviled eggs, with a twist. The twist is that they're slightly pickled with beet juice, making for a super-tasty and funky looking egg. A bit of food coloring in the yolk, and you've got a Halloween hors d'ovre that everyone will love to look at... AND eat!

Eerie Alien Eggs

  • 12 hard-boiled eggs
  • 1 can beet liquid
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp Sriacha sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • smoked paprika
  • 3 drops green food coloring

-Arrange whole eggs in a single layer in a shallow baking dish. Cover with beet juice, water, and vinegar, making sure they are completely covered. Let soak in the fridge overnight or for a few hours until eggs are purple.

-Carefully slice eggs in half and scoop yolks out into a small bowl. Mix with remaining ingredients, being careful not to over-mix. Add food coloring until egg yolks are desired color. Pipe or spoon mixture into eggs and chill until ready to serve.


  1. G'day! Love Halloween fun and how cute!

  2. These looks so cute! I haven't finished my Halloween costume yet, but I started working on it yesterday. I usually prefer to make mine instead of buying because it's cheaper and easier to make it exactly how I want it, even though I'm one of the least crafty people I know.

  3. LOVE these!! Delicious-looking and perfect for Halloween!
