If these aren’t the darnedest cutest things you’ve ever seen, I don’t know what is.
I love me some hard-boiled eggs. I usually eat them just plain and hard boiled and save the “deviling” to my grandmother on holidays, but I decided to make these. Because they are precious. And totally worth the effort.
Now, I am going to tell you that the pumpkin is light. So if you want more, add more. Maybe another 1-2 tablespoons more.
This is just a way to reinstate that Halloween isn’t all about the candy. Well… it is. But this way you can be festive and counteract the sugar rush.
Pumpkin Deviled Eggs
Inspired by Foodista
2 tbsp pumpkin
Pinch of cinnamon
Tiny pinch of cayenne pepper
Water, until reached desired amount (I used about 1/2 tsp)
6 sliced green onions
1. Put eggs in a pot of water and bring to a boil. Take the heat down slightly, to medium-high, to avoid cracking but continue boiling. Boil for 11 minutes.
2. Get a bowl of ice cold water ready, and after the 11 minutes, but the eggs in the water. Allow them to sit for a few minutes before peeling.
3. Cut the eggs in half, scrape the yolks out, and add the pumpkin and spices. Combine all with a spoon, or blend together.
4. Pipe pumpkin mixture into eggs, or just spoon inside.
5. Place a sliced green onion at one end of each egg, to resemble a pumpkin.
