It’s almost Halloween and while the rest of the world have been having parties and trick or treating, we’ve been so busy I’ve not even thought about it too much. This evening though we did breakfast for dinner, of a sort, with sausages, eggs and potato wedges, and I decided to make them a little Halloween-ish. So here’s a quick recipe for Monster Eggs to bring some Halloween into your day with little to no effort.
Fortunately, I happened to have edible ink and edible eyes on hand (That’s normal, right?!) so it was easy to do. If you don’t have those, you could use mayonnaise and olives for the eyes, or even mayonnaise and a sprig of greenery for eye slits.
For this recipe you will need:
- 4 peeled and boiled eggs (14 minutes in the Thermomix® internal steamer/Varoma)
- 50g spinach
- 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
- Salt to taste
Cut the eggs in half, then scoop the yolks out
Combine the yolks, spinach, mayo and paprika in a food processor and blend till it’s a smooth mix (2 mins, speed 4 in the Thermomix®)
If you have edible ink, draw eyelashes on the egg white
Scoop spoonfuls back into the egg whites and top with the ‘eye balls’
Sprinkle salt to taste
These will keep for a few hours in the fridge if you’re making them for later
