Spider Deviled Eggs
Halloween will be here before we know it and I am making a list of fun recipes to create for our party. These spider deviled eggs are at the top of my list! I love deviled eggs (aka poison pills since they are chalked full of yummy badness for you – LOL).
This recipe is so easy to make and to mix it up you can use different color olives (and maybe use pimento from green olives for their head!). Get the kids involved to help make a few for their party table too!
You can cream all the ingredients together by hand or do what I prefer which is to whip everything by hand using one of my hand blenders (I actually own THREE of them!)
It’s personal preference if you like your egg yolks lumpy or smooth – I prefer them smooth. (And yes… I like the bowl just like I am baking brownies… yum!)
Once your mixture is well blended add them to your halved egg whites – I normally pipe my egg yolk mixture so they are pretty but for this spider deviled egg recipe it doesn’t matter since the tops will be covered.
How fun are these! Again, mix up your topping with different colored olives and add variations to make them different. If the kids don’t dig olives find a substitute to place on top using the same method.

- 6 Hard Boiled Eggs
- 3 tablespoons Mayonnaise
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons Spicy Brown Mustard
- 1 teaspoons Rice Vinegar, or whatever you have on hand
- 1⁄4 teaspoon Salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon Pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 1 can Medium Black Olives
- Peel eggs and cut in half length wise.
- Using a teaspoon scrape out the yolks into a small bowl.
- Add the Mayonnaise, Mustard, Vinegar, Salt, Pepper and Garlic Powder to the yolks and mix well.
- Mash the yolks so they are smooth.
- Spoon the yolk mixture back into the whites.
- Each half egg will use 2 olives.
- Cut the first Olive in half lengthwise.
- Place the two halves end to end on top of the yolk mixture right in the middle, leaving room for the legs.
- Cut the second Olive in lengthwise in half.
- Cut each half lengthwise to make four legs each.
- Put four legs on each side of the half olive closest to the pointy end of the egg, angling them so they fan out a little.
