4. Last Minute Halloween Party Food :: Pumpkin Deviled Eggs
These devilled eggs are seasoned with Thai curry spices and then decorated with bits of chives (or spring onion) to make to the pumpkin stems! Optionally, add a spoonful of coconut cream to the yolk mixture instead of mayonnaise to round off that Asian flavoring.
For a ‘regular’ pumpkin Halloween egg, use again the chives for the stems. Add Tumeric and paprika powder, pepper and salt for seasoning and color.
