Halloween Recipes - Vampire Eyes

Frost is on the pumpkin!

We've finally gotten a cold snap here in Fauquier County, Virginia so Fall is finally on the way.

Today's recipe as we count down to Halloween creeps me out but the kids will love it!

It's really just plain old stuffed eggs with olives but you don't have to tell any one!!

Vampire Eyes

Makes 12 eyes

6 hard cooked eggs (shells removed and chilled)
1-2 tablespoons (Miracle whip or mayonnaise - to taste)
1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard (optional)
1 (7 oz.) jar green olives stuffed with pimentos (any size)
Red food coloring (optional)

Cut eggs in half length wise (from small oval end to bigger rounded end) making 2 halves like for stuffed or deviled eggs. Remove yolks being careful not to break whites.

Mash yolks with Miracle whip (or mayonnaise) and mustard. Stuff back into egg whites. Position an olive (pimento facing up) into each yolk so they resemble eyes. If desired, use a tooth pick to squiggle a little red food coloring on the whites to make them look blood shot - in which case you could call this recipe "Blood Shot Vampire Eyes."
