Eyeball deviled eggs

Updated on September 8, 2014

Eyeball Devided Eggs are quick and easy to make

There are many deviled egg recipes for Halloween and while all of them are gruesome, I like these the best. A friend found this adaptation and brought them to a Halloween party. The kids were sufficiently grossed out so I knew they would be the perfect thing to make at our Spooktacular Vintage Trailer Rally.

Kid tested. Kid approved.

If you are in Tucson the weekend before Halloween, come and see us.

Decorating at our Vintage Trailer Rally has taken on a life of its own and now includes food. Deviled eggs are always a Halloween favorite but it can't be any deviled eggs. It has to be a totally icky looking treat. I love that the eye is a shade of green that makes it very appropriate. The bloodshot look helps and this is the easiest thing to make. Even without hook-ups, campers can make this without any special equipment.

Everyone needs a tray to transport these gruesome goodies. This is helpful at a potluck because with the lids, it keeps the camp critters out of the eggs. It fits well on top of the food in our ice chest so there is not concern about spoilage.


Peeling the eggs


This is so much fun to make

Kids love to make things that are gross. However, even they can get a little unsure about eating these when the eyeball color is green. It took a while for our child to get past the color and he loves deviled eggs.

Cast your vote for Deviled egg eyeballs


  • 1 dozen eggs
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
  • 1/4 cup mustard
  • 1 tablespoon dill pickle relish - great for chuncky pieces in the eyeball
  • 1 can sliced black olives
  • Blue food coloring
  • Hot sauce or red food coloring


  1. Place the eggs in a saucepan of cold water and let it come to a boil. After it starts boiling, take if from the heat and let it sit covered for 15 minutes. Drain the hot water and fill with cold water, replacing the cold water as needed to allow the eggs to cool.
  2. Peel the eggs.
  3. Slice lengthwise.
  4. Remove the yolks and put them in a small bowl. Add the mayonnaise, mustard, and pickle relish. Mix until creamy. Add a couple drops of blue food color to make the mix green.
  5. Fill the empty egg whites with the mixture. Put an olive slice on each yolk mixture.
  6. With a toothpick, draw squiggly lines on the egg whites. As mentioned, we used food coloring instead of hot sauce.

The green color is sort of off-putting - 3 drops of blue food coloring changes the entire look of the deviled eggs


Gross food adds to the theme of the Spooktacular Rally


Do you think that we have gone overboard with the Halloween Theme?

Adding bloodshot eyes

The recipe calls for hot sauce for the bloodshot eyes. The one at the upper right hand corner has the hot sauce but we didn't like it so we got the toothpick and dipped it into red food color. It's much brighter and we liked it better.

      Great photos and descriptions. My nephew always made the deviled eggs for family gatherings. It's a good thing he didn't know about this recipe. Actually the addition of the pickle relish sounds quite tasty.
