This group is awesome because these people are serious home cooks and home bakers and share photos of all of their amazing creations.
At Halloween, though not an Italian dish, someone shared a photo of the most adorable pumpkin deviled eggs they had created for their family.
How have I never seen little pumpkin deviled eggs before?
It has to be the cutest and simplest idea ever!
And by pumpkin deviled eggs, I mean deviled eggs that look like the yolks are little pumpkins.
NOT pumpkin flavored deviled eggs because that would be… we’ll just say ew.
I decided I needed to share this awesome idea for the masses so I adjusted my deviled egg recipe for you all.
This recipe will definitely be added to my Thanksgiving Planner Pages for future family feasts!
Can you imagine how adorable these will look on your fall holiday table?
The Perfect Boiled Egg
I have upped my egg game with this Dash Egg Cooker (affiliate link).
This bad boy will hold up to 12 eggs to boil at a time.
Not only does it cook them perfectly on a timer (~20 min for 1 dozen), but the shells are super easy to peel without any additives to the water.
I use this egg cooker for all our holiday meals (because deviled eggs are a must have side for this family), Easter eggs, and for making hard boiled eggs for egg salad.
Making Pumpkin Deviled Eggs
Step one: Boil eggs, place in an ice bath to stop cooking, then peel off the shells.
That is boiled egg perfection, my friends.
Step two: Slice peeled eggs in half and remove yolks then mash yolks with a fork.

Step three: Add deviled egg ingredients (this is for 6 eggs).
3 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp Dijon mustard
salt and pepper to taste
Mix ingredients thoroughly.
If the egg mixture is too dry, add more mayonnaise.
Add food coloring to egg yolk mixture (see next photo).
Pumpkin Deviled Eggs: Coloring Egg Yolks
You will need red food coloring and possibly yellow food coloring depending on the shade of orange you are going for.
Photo 1: This light orange color is after the addition of 3 drops of red food coloring. It was a little light for me.
Photo 2: After the addition of 3 more (6 total) drops of red food coloring, the shade of orange was a little too bright.
Photo 3: I added 3 drops of yellow food coloring to tone down the bright orange and was pretty happy with this shade of orange.
Food coloring totals: 6 drops of red food coloring + 3 drops of yellow food coloring.
Pumpkin Deviled Eggs
Step four: Fill the egg white with the orange egg yolk mixture.
I put the egg yolks in a pastry bag (affiliate link) for easy filling.
Step five: Cut chives into 1/2″ pieces and place one to the top of the egg yolk mixture to create the pumpkin stem.
