Spider Devil Eggs


  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • ¼ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to preference
  • 12 black olives
  • A sprinkle of paprika (Optional)


  1. Egg Preparation:
    • In a saucepan, place the eggs and cover them with water.
    • Set the heat to high, and once boiling, turn off the heat.
    • Allow the eggs to sit in the hot water for 15 minutes.
    • Afterwards, cool the eggs by running them under cold water. Once cooled, peel them.
  2. Creating the Deviled Mix:
    • Slice the eggs in half, lengthwise. Gently scoop out the yolks and transfer them to a mixing bowl.
    • To the yolks, add the mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and pepper.
    • Using a fork, mash the yolks and mix until you achieve a smooth consistency.
  3. Filling the Eggs:
    • Refill the hollowed egg whites with the yolk mixture. You can use a spoon or, for a neater presentation, use a piping bag or a resealable plastic bag with one corner snipped off.
  4. Crafting the Spiders:
    • Slice the black olives in half. Place one half on each deviled egg, serving as the spider’s body.
    • The remaining olive halves should be sliced again into 4 segments, creating 8 slim olive pieces. These act as the spider legs. Position 4 legs on either side of the olive body to mimic a spider.
  5. Final Touches:
    • Optionally, sprinkle a light dusting of paprika for added color and flavor.

Serve these delightful, spooky treats at your next Halloween party or gathering, and they’re sure to be a hit!
