Eyes of Newt

Deviled Eggs

deviled eggs This is a well known Halloween party dish: deviled eggs topped by pimento-filled-olives made to resemble eyes. The trick is pretty good - and the eggs do look scary. Calling them "Eyes of Newt" was probably not the best of ideas, though, I'm told newts are actually small lizards. I'll probably call them monster eyes or something like that next time I serve them.

This is a pretty traditional recipe for deviled eggs, I based it on several recipes I found online. I did not measure quantities as I made it, so you'll also have to go with your gut. Everyone at my party liked them - specially Mike who wasn't so thrilled with my last deviled egg effort.

Deviled Eggs


  • 18 eggs
  • 2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • Mayonnaise
  • a dash of Worcestershire sauce
  • a dash of hot Hungarian paprika
  • 36 pimento stuffed olives


    Put eggs in a large pot, cover with cold water and put on the stove. Bring pot to a boil and cook for about 10 minutes. Remove eggs and put in a bowl with cold water. Once the eggs cool down, peel them and cut them in half. Remove yolk from each half and put in a small bowl, reserving the egg whites.

    Add dijon mustard and about 1/4 cup of mayonnaise to the egg yolks. Mix well and continue adding mayo and mixing until the mixture is very light and fluffy. Add Worcestershire sauce and paprika, taste, and adjust seasonings as needed.

    Fill each egg white half with the yolk mixture. Put an olive in the middle. Serve.
