This photographer notes:
"This version of devilled eggs is a Halloween tradition in my family!
Hard-boil 12 eggs. Remove shells, rinse and dry. Slice in half lengthwise. Remove yolks and place in medium bowl. Use a pastry cutter to mash yolks well. Add Mustard and Miracle Whip in a 2-1 ratio to create a paste. Add drops of Tabasco to your heat comfort level, then a few more. Fill eggwhite halves with yolk mixture, rounding and smoothing top of each. Push a whole pimiento-stuffed green olive into the center of each yolk well, stuffed side up. Use a toothpick dipped into red food dye to draw tiny wiggly red lines on whites, to simulate capillaries.
Variation (shown): Add blue food dye to yolk mixture to make it a creepy green. Use black olive slices to create the eyeball effect, with a small piece of pimiento for the pupil. '
