These Dragon Devilled Eyes is another very easy recipe and one of the most popular dishes of the night with people asking for "more of those dragon's eyes please". I know Devilled eggs are fantastically retro and that may have prevented you from serving them at a chi chi dinner party but they definitely have a place at Halloween. I mean I am serving up sliced up hot dogs so you know, while I'm here in kitschville....
I made two dozen "eyes" but you could certainly make just six but I tend to dreadfully overcater. Plus I had a lot of vegetarians to feed. I've never seen a dragon myself but the literature tells me that they have pupils like cats so be it.
Dragon's Eye Devilled Eggs
An Original Recipe by Lorraine Elliott
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 0 minutes
1 dozen eggs, hard boiled (use older eggs as the shells will come off more easily)
6-7 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
Sliced pitted black olives
Step 1 - Peel and slice boiled eggs in half horizontally. Gently remove the yolks and mash these up with the mayonnaise and curry powder and stuff them back into the egg whites.
Step 2 - Shake over a little smoked paprika using a small sieve and then place a sliver of the black olive in the centre.
