About this recipe: Bubble, bubble. Toil and trouble. This nibble is devilled eggs made to look like the eyeballs of a lizard. It a hit with the kids at my Halloween party. Watch them get eaten up at your party!


Serves: 12 

  • 12 eggs
  • 2 drops green food colouring, or as needed
  • 1 tablespoon chopped gherkins
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 pinch celery salt
  • 1/2 (240g) jar sliced black Spanish olives, drained
  • 1 tablespoon mustard

Prep:10min  ›  Ready in:10min 

  1. Place all of the eggs into a large pot so they can rest on the bottom in a single layer. Fill with just enough cold water to cover the eggs. Bring to the boil, then cover, remove from the heat and let stand for about 15 minutes. Rinse under cold water or add some ice to the water and let the eggs cool completely. Peel and slice in half lengthways.
  2. Remove the yolks from the eggs and place them in a bowl. Mix in the chopped gherkins, mayonnaise, celery salt and food colouring. Spoon this filling into the egg whites and place them on a serving tray. Round the top of the filling using the spoon. Place an olive slice on each yolk to create the centre of the eye. Dab a tiny bit of mayonnaise in the centre of the olive as a finishing touch.
