Make Pickled Deviled Eggs for a fun twist on classic deviled eggs! If you prefer traditional deviled eggs, just skip the pickling step. Colorful and perfect for any party, but especially Halloween!

Ingredients

Hard boiled eggs 6 , peeled
Pickled beet liquid 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Mayonnaise 2 Tablespoon
Yellow mustard 2 Teaspoon
Pickled banana peppers/Jalapeno 2
Cayenne pepper 1/2 Teaspoon (for spicier eggs)
Green olives with pimentos 6

Directions

MAKING:

1.Slice the eggs lengthwise in half, using a sharp, non-serrated knife. 2.Rinsing your knife in cold water between eggs will make slicing easier.

3.Pop the yolks out and set aside.

4.Put the whites in a container and cover with the beet juice. Let sit for 5 minutes for a light pink color, and up to 24 hours for a dark purple color (I like the longer soak time for more flavor and color, plus a firmer texture).

6.Mash the yolks with a fork. They will seem crumbly and dry. No worries.

7.Add the mayonnaise, mustard, peppers, cayenne, and a little of the pepper juice if you like. Mash to make a very smooth, silky paste.

8.Use a small spoon to fill each egg white cup with a mound of the yolk spread.

9.Slice the green olives in half and press into each mound to make the demon eye pupil.

SERVING:

10.Serve immediately or refrigerate up to 24 hours.
