14 Oct Spicy and Sweet Deviled Eggs // Halloween Party Recipe
It’s Friday, y’all, and Halloween is only a few weeks away! How did we get here so quickly? I swear I was just the other day picking out my New Year’s Resolution and now I’m picking out Halloween costumes, planning Thanksgiving dinner and getting a game plan together for Christmas shopping… Life is flying by! Nonetheless, I’m here to give y’all an awesome recipe for my new, favorite, spooky appetizer… Spicy and Sweet Deviled Eggs! I could, call them trick or treat deviled eggs, too, I guess, because they start off with a wasabi KICK and finish with a sweet touch… first the trick and then the treat!
These deviled eggs were inspired by a photo I saw on Pinterest that I thought looked SO cool! I decided to try and recreate the eggs I saw on Pinterest [You can see the original post from FamilySpice.com by clicking HERE], but I wanted to make this recipe my own. I LOVE wasabi and sometimes deviled eggs can be bland… Obviously for a Halloween Party, bland is not okay, so I kicked up the wasabi and then added a surprise element for my guests to enjoy… introducing the black sanding sugar from Williams-Sonoma… Y’all, it added the craziest element to both the taste AND the look of the eggs… talk about a scary-looking appetizer that’s full of all the best things about Halloween! [A little bit of trick and a little bit of treat!]
Here’s what you need:
SPICY AND SWEET DEVILED EGGS
Prep Time: 1 Hour and 30 Minutes [including hard-boiled egg process] // Total Time: 2 Hours
Here’s What You Need:
8 eggs [hard-boiled, cooled for an hour in the fridge and peeled]
4 tbs wasabi paste
1 large avocado [pit removed]
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
black sanding sugar
- Cut the hard-boiled eggs in half, lengthwise, remove the yolks and place them into a bowl. Arrange the eggs, holes up, on a plate.
- Mix the egg yolks with the wasabi, lemon juice, salt and avocado until smooth.
- Scoop the wasabi, avocado and egg mixture into a piping bag and squeeze into the holes of the eggs.
- Refrigerate the eggs for at least 30 minutes.
- Right before serving, sprinkle the eggs with the black sanding sugar. It will melt as it sits on the eggs, creating a spooky, web-like effect on them.
These eggs were super easy to make and I barely was able to eat one before they were gone! Thanks, Kristen Dee Photography for capturing these photos of them before they disappeared!
