Servings 24


  • green food coloring


  • 12 large hard boiled eggs, peeled, cut in half vertically, remove yolks, and set aside whites.
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons mayo
  • paprika
  • 1 teaspoon bread and butter pickle juice, optional

For the spiders

  • green food coloring
  • black or green olives, Note: Many olives will be needed to create the center and legs of the spider.


  • In a bowl, add egg yolks, 2 tablespoons mustard, 2 tablespoons white vinegar, 3 tablespoons mayonnaise, and optional 1 teaspoon bread and butter pickle juice. Mix until smooth.
  • Fill a small bowl with water and a couple of drops of green food coloring.
  • Place the egg whites in the green colored water for 2 minutes. Take them out and dry them.
  • Spoon or pipe the egg yolk mixture into the center of the egg whites and sprinkle with paprika.

Create the spiders

  • Using black or green olives, cut the olive vertically in half and place in the center of each egg,
  • Cut the remaining olives vertically creating 6 to 8 legs for each creature. Place around the egg like legs. Note: Normally a spider has eight legs, but sometimes they don’t fit and we use six legs instead.
