Jack-O-Lantern Deviled Eggs

Author Andrea Vaughan


  • 12 eggs
  • 1 orange bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/8 cup Dijon mustard
  • Salt to taste
  • Paprika
  • Chives or green onion


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add in eggs and boil for 10 minutes. Remove and let cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place bell pepper directly on oven rack, and roast for 5 - 10 minutes a side, rotating when the skin is starting to brown. Remove from oven, and allow to cool. Remove the skin, stem and seeds from the pepper, then place the flesh of the pepper into a food processor. Blend until smooth.
  3. Once eggs are cool, remove the shell, and cut each egg in half, vertically. Remove the yolk, and place in a bowl. Once all yolks are removed, add the pureed pepper, mayo, mustard and salt. Use a bowl to mash the yolks, and stir until well mixed. Transfer yolk mixture to a sandwich bag, cut a hole in the tip of one corner, and pipe the yolk mixture into the halved eggs.
  4. Sprinkle the yolks with paprika, then insert a small slice of chives to the top.
