YAY its almost Halloween. I hope your costumes are picked, your candy is bought, and your house is decked out in spooky Halloween decor! In our house we have a very excited Elsa, who has been insisting on prancing around in her new Frozen dress while toting around a plastic rat all day, everyday.
Next on the list is to prepare a ‘spooky spooky’ appetizer for this years Halloween party. Today I tried my hand at deviled eggs. Confession- this is the first time I have ever made a deviled egg, but trust me when I say YUM!
Ingredients: (Makes 6)
- 1 beet
- 3 eggs
- 1 tablespoon of mayo
- 1 avocado
- 1/2 a lime
- feta cheese
1. Hard Boil Your Eggs
I still haven’t mastered the art of a hard boiled egg, but here is my process based on the research I have done (yes there are many blog posts out there devoted to the hard boiling of an egg).
Place your eggs in a pot of water, then bring to a rolling boil for two minutes. Remove from heat and cover your pot for 15 minutes. Then submerge your eggs in ice cold water.
When they are cool enough to handle, peel off the shell, and cut in half. Remove the yolks and place in a food processor.
2.Dye Your Eggs Purple
Cut your beet into chunks and put in a bowl of water. Take your eggs whites and submerge them into the bowl with the beets for approx. 10 minutes. If you want them darker, then let them sit a few more minutes.
3. Mix Up Your Filling
In a food processor add your yolks, mayo, avocado, lime juice, and a pinch of salt. Mix until creamy. Use a piping bag to fill the holes of your egg whites…ummm or I guess egg purples?
4. Finishing Touches
Crumble feta cheese across the tops of your eggs, and enjoy.
Warning: If you bring these to a party, be sure to make extra. They are so delicious that I ate 4 before even leaving the house.
