Pumpkin Deviled Eggs

Pumpkin Deviled Eggs

Just to be clear, there is no pumpkin in these Pumpkin  Deviled Eggs. Because that would just be taking the whole pumpkin thing too far, would it not? (Hmm, or would it?)

 

Savory Halloween Treats

The pumpkin in the name is because these eggs resemble little pumpkins, making them perfect for a Thanksgiving appetizer or a Halloween party. I know that Halloween is often all about candy, treats, and sweets. But it’s nice to have a little bit of savory for balance. And savory treats can be just as festive. Even though the name, “deviled eggs” sounds just perfect for Halloween, there’s a cool history to this popular treat. Check it out, because the evolution of the deviled egg is really quite fascinating: The Ancient History of Deviled Eggs

Easy Halloween Deviled Eggs

The other great thing about these cute little pumpkin deviled eggs is that they are so easy to make.  I don’t have a ton of patience for fiddling with food that’s just gets eaten, anyways. I usually just aim to make sure it looks appetizing. Although I do admire those who do and always appreciate the effort. I’ve seen some amazingly creative things done to food for a Halloween party, and it’s so much fun. People have made spider webs, eyeballs, little ghosts, witches hats, and all kinds of Halloween themed things out of food.

Spicy or Not, Deviled Eggs

As fun as that all is, I’m happy that these eggs took so little effort because they disappeared fast. I mixed the egg yolks with sriracha and smoked paprika as well as mayonnaise to get the orange colour. And I also made a separate batch omitting the sriracha and using extra paprika. Not everyone is a fan of spicy, especially kids, so everyone was happy. The amount of sriracha is pretty small, so there’s very little heat anyways, and you can add extra if you want them to pack a little more punch.

I used a melon baller to scoop the yolks back into the whites to give the pumpkins their rounded shapes. A little strip of green pepper makes a perfect pumpkin stem, and it adds a nice little crunch, too. These little deviled pumpkin eggs are a yummy way to make sure there’s some nutritious protein amidst all the sugary treats for any spooky festivities.

  1. These are the prettiest and most delicious Halloween treat I’ve seen so far! Although I have a sweet tooth I don’t like candies or overly sweet sweets, so I would be all over these cute deviled eggs! Their flavor is so nice, as well, love the added paprika and sriracha.

  2. I love these so much! Halloween recipes do always seem to be the most fun and creative, don’t they? It’s nice that you went for a savory dish. You don’t see too many of those during this spooky time of year. πŸ™‚

  3. Girrrrl, these are adorable! I’m such a sucker for deviled eggs, yet it seems as though no one brings them to potlucks anymore. Probably a good thing, since I could plow through a dozen myself, lol. Oi. And with Sriracha in the mix? Game over <3

  4. Those looks so cute and of course I am a fan of deviled eggs! I like the idea to make a batch with Sriracha and the other with paprika because I like it less spicy too.

  5. I happen to LOVE devilled eggs. These are party perfect. I know they would disappear in a flash….such a cute idea.
