ACK! You Still Need Food For the Halloween Party!

Uploaded: Oct 30, 2018

I spent the day cooking for Riley and Sammy’s Halloween Party.

Here’s the menu.


Halloween Twice Baked Potatoes



Mummies in a Blanket

Spooky Spider Eggs

I C U Cocktail Meatballs

Pumpkin Throwing up Spinach Dip

Veggie stix, bread, crackers

Seeing Eye Cookies

Vampire Blood (mulled wine)


If you still need something, try the Spooky Spider Eggs or Mummies in a Blanket. So easy they don’t even need a recipe.





But if you do need one - here’s my version.

Happy Halloween!

Spooky Spider Eggs
Makes 16 eggs

1 can pitted black olives
8 peeled hard-boiled large eggs
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon minced green onions or shallot
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
Worcestershire and lemon juice to taste
pinch cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper

Cut 8 olives in half length-wise. Slice 16 additional olives in half length-wise, then slice each half into 4 skinny “legs.” Set aside.
Slice each egg in half lengthwise; gently scoop out yolks and place in a bowl. Your best bet is to push the yolks through a strainer, or just mash yolks with a fork, then stir in mayonnaise, green onions, mustard and cayenne. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Spoon or pipe about 1 tablespoon yolk mixture into the hollow of each egg-white half. Center an olive half on top of the egg mixture, and then place 4 ‘olive legs’ on each side of the half to make a spider.

Serve immediately or cover and chill up to 4 hours.
