Spooky Deviled Eggs – 2 recipes

Spooky Deviled Eggs!  We love serving deviled eggs as an appetizer and these Spooky Deviled Eggs are just in time for Halloween!  I wanted to make two kinds of deviled eggs: one is the more traditional deviled eggs stuffed with a mixture of egg yolks, mayo and spices and the other is stuffed with our favorite lemony tuna fish filling, both topped with cute little spooky eyes and black spiders using green and black olives.

Deviled eggs are a great way to serve your guests something gluten-free. They’re high in protein, easy to prepare and taste great!

Spooky Deviled Eggs are festive and fun to serve as an appetizer at a Halloween party.  In fact, I made these as an appetizer before dinner for friends who are staying with us this week and I made them again for a Halloween party we attended this past weekend.

It was Spook-tacular!

Have a lovely and Spooky day! 
Happy Halloween everyone!

                                            Enjoy!

    These are just too cute! And I adore deviled eggs – they are well named for this holiday. The addition of tuna sounds great. Gotta try this soon. I sure have missed you 🙂
