Halloween Week: Jack-O-Lantern Deviled Eggs

C – Halloween parties are my least favorite kind of parties.

Especially, when it is a potluck. What should we bring? Candy? Alcohol? I am sure candy is a given for everyone. I hate bringing either one. Not a big fan of bringing things like that unless it’s required.

Monday and Tuesday’s posts are good ones to bring to parties. Just make sure you place a warning label on them, if you make it spicy. Today’s post is more fun and creative.

They are so cute and simple to make. I think people will really like the effort and creativity. Oh and it tastes good too. Of course, you eat with your eyes before you eat with your mouth … so, it better taste as good as it looks.

This one is both. Creamy egg yolk with a perfectly cooked egg white and bits of caper and shallot mixed in as well.

My favorite is the flavor from the nori that is on top. No, it isn’t just for decoration. It’s adds complexity to the deviled eggs.
