Deviled eggs were MADE for Halloween. Forget that this food’s name has a slightly sinister connotation – the mild flavor of a hard boiled egg makes them easily adaptable to so many other flavors, they’re an easy-to-eat appetizer and, as you’ll see in this post, it’s a ton of fun to make them look spooky.
Plus Halloween deviled eggs are one of those foods where it’s easy to make them look gross without going overboard to the point that no one wants to eat them. (I’m easily grossed out and would eat every single one of these recipes!)
I happen to LOVE deviled eggs, which made putting together this post extra fun for me!
