Deviled Eyeballs

By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 10 minutes

Servings: 12


  • 7 large hard-boiled eggs, peeled
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoon green food coloring or less
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 green olives stuffed with pimento, sliced in half
  • red food coloring paste


Halve 7 eggs lengthwise. Remove yolks and place in a small bowl.

Mash the yolks with a fork and stir in mayonnaise, pickle relish, mustard, and green food coloring. Add salt and pepper, to taste.

Fill 12 egg whites halves evenly with yolk mixture (discarding 1 white). Place a green olive on top of the yolk. Using a fine brush or toothpick, draw on the red veins around the whites of the eyes.
