6 large eggs
1/4 cup of mayonnaise
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon English mustard powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Pinch of paprika
Black olives, pitted (or any other interesting olive)
Pickled red pepper (optional)
Making the stuffed eggs
Boil the eggs.Place the eggs into a pot of cold water. The water should cover the eggs (about 2.5cm/1 inch). Bring to the boil, then simmer for 15 minutes.
Remove from the heat.Drain the water and allow the eggs to cool.
Peel the cooled eggs.They can be peeled as soon as you’re able to touch the eggs comfortably.
Slice each egg in half.Use a teaspoon to scoop out the yolks from each half. Place the yolks into a bowl. Arrange the white halves on a baking sheet or platter for use later.
Pour the mayonnaise, vinegar and mustard into the bowl with the yolks.Mix well. Add salt to taste.
- If the yolk blend seems a little stiff or thick, add more mayonnaise.
Push the yolk mixture through a colander to ensure smoothness.This step isn’t necessary if you like the texture from the previous step but it will make it as smooth as possible.
Scoop the yolk mixture neatly into each white egg half.Form a rounded mound in each half, as this is what the spider will sit upon. Sprinkle with paprika.
Making the spider topping
Cut six olives in half, lengthwise.
Place one half down on the top of each yolk mound.The hollow side faces downward. This forms the spider’s body.
Create the legs.
- Cut another twelve olives in half, lengthwise. Then, cut each half into four even lengths.
- Place four legs down one side of the spider’s body, then another four legs down the other side. Anchor the legs into the yolk mixture to help them hold.
- Repeat for all egg halves.
Arrange the spider eggs on a serving plate or platter.They look most effective when sitting together as a group. Now serve your spooky food!
