Halloween is finally here! This is my favorite holiday and I look forward to it all year. This is not an exaggeration. You know those people that start to pull out Christmas decorations at the beginning of October? That’s how I am at the beginning of August with Halloween decorations. I’ve been watching scary movies every night for the past month and making spooky cocktails and lots of Halloween themed food.
Food! Now that I’m an adult, this is honestly one of my favorite parts of Halloween. There are so many hilarious, and often gross looking, recipes to make for a great Halloween themed menu. I’m on my own tonight and I’ve decided to make myself a spooky but delicious Halloween feast. And of course, no feast in this house is complete without Deviled Eggs.
Since tonight is also the night where the veil between the worlds is thinnest, I thought maybe I could offer you a little extra protection from the monsters, especially Vampires. Ward off any that come knockin’ with these Vampire Slayer Deviled Eggs. These things are little garlic bombs and they will definitely keep away any vampires (or pretty much anyone else for that matter) with their garlicky potency.
These will bring tears to your eyes, they’re so good. The tears may also be from an overload of garlic, but let’s not quibble. These make a great addition to any Halloween party, especially if you don’t have the time to make an elaborate dish. These are still on theme, fun and delicious. They are also a great way to weed out the vampires at any party, just look for those that don’t eat them. They are either a vampire or someone who doesn’t like garlic, and frankly neither are to be trusted.
Vampire Slayer Deviled Eggs
- 12 hard boiled eggs
- 4 Tbsp Hellman’s Dijonaise
- Garlic Flakes
- Minced Garlic (no measurement, this is up to you and your desired level of sweet sweet garlic pain)
- Hard boil your eggs, then peel and slice into halves
- Combine egg yolks, Dijonaise and Minced Garlic in a bowl
- Fill either a plastic bag or a piping bag, and fill the egg halves with the yolk mix
- Sprinkle garlic flakes liberally on top of eggs
- Ward of evil and enjoy Halloween!
As a Halloween bonus, please enjoy this picture of my dog in a Pumpkin hat. He’s clearly thrilled.
