MONSTER MASH MONDAY - Eerie Alien Eggs Halloween Recipe

Yum
Do these pictures look familiar? This post originally appeared on my old blog, Quarter Life (Crisis) Cuisine, which I unfortunately let expire. I'm posting some of my favorites on this blog so that I don't lose them forever.

Hey guys, and welcome to Monster Mash Monday! It's 5 weeks until Halloween and I am re-posting my favorite Halloween recipes from my old blog! From now until my favorite holiday arrives, check back every Monday for a new Halloween recipe. Missed last week? Check it out here: Candy Corn Marshmallow Treats.


These might look a bit familiar... I do a similar Easter Recipe. They look sliiiightly less gross with their natural yellow yolks. But, what sort of Halloweeny fun is that? Hehe...


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!

This year, I think I'll add a little guacamole instead of the mayo. What do you think?

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.
