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.

  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.
