6 hard-boiled eggs
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
Salt and pepper to taste
- Carefully peel the hard-boiled eggs and slice them in half lengthwise
- Gently remove the yolks and place them in a bowl. Set aside the egg whites.
- Mash the egg yolks with a fork until they are finely crumbled.
- Add light mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, curry powder, salt, and pepper to the mashed yolks. Mix well until you have a creamy filling with a touch of curry flavor.
- Spoon the yolk mixture back into the hollowed-out egg whites, filling them generously.
- To create the spider effect, take black olives and cut them in half lengthwise. Place one-half in the center of each filled egg to resemble the spider’s body.
- For the spider legs, use additional olive slices. Arrange them around the spider’s body, inserting them into the filling at an angle to mimic the legs.
- Finely chop fresh chives and sprinkle them over the spider eggs to add a vibrant green “grass” effect.
- Repeat this process for all the eggs, creating a spooky spider on each one.
- Once done, refrigerate the Halloween spider eggs for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors meld.
- Serve chilled as a creepy and flavorful Halloween appetizer or party snack.
