I used my own recipe for the filling so I'm rating this based the concept rather than the flavor. I made a dozen boiled eggs, cracked the heck out of them (rolling the cracked eggs on the counter makes a nice spiderweb of cracks). I then put them in an 8" square Pyrex in the sink, dumped in about two teaspoons of red food coloring, a glug of vinegar, and poured in boiling water to cover. They're heavily veined, it shows up great! I really think the recipe should mention how much dye is needed, though. I happened to have an old bottle of red and just used what was left in it. The vinegar is because you use some when making dye for Easter eggs so I figured it couldn't hurt, might help. Mine look fantastic! Oh, and I placed them on a bed of shredded lettuce rather than slicing ends. That works, too.
Easy and turned out great. I used my own deviled egg recipe. The tip to slice off a small part of the "pointed" end of the egg was brilliant!!
This was super easy and turned out beautifully - and were a huge hit! I will probably make them for every Halloween Party or Friday the 13th celebration from here on out.
Overall a good recipe except that after soaking the eggs in red dye water, the eggs themselves were almost entirely white. Yes, I cracked the eggs in multiple places! Has anyone else had this issue? Any suggestions? Thanks
I always do a Halloween themed dinner on Halloween and these are great! I have made this recipe a few times now and I do use more spices in the egg yolk mixture but the process to make these look like eyeballs is fantastic! I would recommend using more red dye tho.

When I tried this recipe, my egg whites didn't turn out looking red and veiny. I think you need to really crack the eggs well and put a ton of red food coloring in the water. Like more than you think is too much.
