Halloween Food Ideas for an Adult Halloween Party: Rotten Deviled Eggs
There are many variations of these tea eggs, but in the spirit of the Halloween season, we decided to spook them up a bit to make Rotten Deviled Eggs by adding wasabi. If you like sushi, you will LOVE this Halloween recipe.
For the eggs:
- One dozen large eggs
- 1 cup soy sauce
- ¼ cup of balsamic vinegar
- 6 black tea bags
- 4 tsp. of sugar
- 2 tbsp. of Chinese Five Spice
For the center:
- ¼ cup wasabi mustard (use less or more depending on your spiciness preference)
- ¼ cup mayonnaise (or Greek yogurt for a healthier option)
- Green and yellow food coloring
- Fill a large pot about a quarter of the way with water and place in all of the eggs. Make sure the eggs have space and are not layered on top of each other in the pot.
- Place the pot on the stove and bring water to a boil. Let the eggs boil for about 5-7 minutes.
- While the eggs are boiling, combine the soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, tea bags (still in the sachets), sugar, and Chinese Five Spice in a bowl.
- Remove eggs from boiling water but KEEP the water. Rinse the eggs in cold water.
- Take each egg and gently crack it on a hard surface. DO NOT peel it but make sure the hard shells are cracked all the way through to the egg. The better the cracks, the cooler the eggs will look.
- Return the eggs to the water and add the spice mixture to the pot. Make sure the eggs are completely covered again. You might need to add more water.
- Turn the stove down very low and let the eggs simmer for about 3 hours.
- After 3 hours, take one egg out and peel it. If the cracks are not a deep brown color, let them sit a little longer (about 30 minutes).
- Remove all of the eggs from the water and peel them.
Making the middle:
- Cut the tops off of the eggs and remove the yokes.
- In a bowl, combine wasabi mustard, mayonnaise, yokes, and egg tops and mix together until mixture has an even consistency.
- Slowly add a few drops of green food coloring until you have your desired colored. If you want your eggs to have a brighter green color, add yellow food coloring to the mixture.
- Spoon the mixture in a Ziploc bag and cut off one of the corners.
- Squeeze the mixture into each of the eggs.
Place them on a plate and serve!
Halloween Food Ideas for an Adult Halloween Party: Positively Spooky Pasta
This easy and fun recipe will be the talk of your next Halloween party. Use it as your main dish or serve it as a side.
- Your favorite type of pasta (wheat or white)
- Red food dye
- Black food dye
- Your favorite sauce (we used Alfredo. It looks best on the pasta and tastes great too!)
- Cook the desired amount of pasta as directed on the box.
- Drain pasta and rinse with cold water.
- Place 1/2 of the pasta into a baggie with 10 drops of red food coloring.
- Place the remaining 1/2 of pasta into another baggie with 10 drops of black food coloring.
- Massage each bag so all the pasta gets coated with food coloring.
- Keep adding food coloring until you get the desired color. The more dye you add, the brighter the color.
- Once your pasta is evenly colored to the desired vibrancy let it sit in the baggie for a few minutes.
- In the meantime, heat your sauce in a small pot until it’s warm.
- Once your sauce is heated, take your pasta out of the bag and rinse the excess food coloring off.
- Plate your pasta and add your sauce on top.

- 2 Large Eggs
- 2 Cups Plain Dried Bread Crumbs
- Olive Oil
Peel & slice eggplant into 1/4″ rounds and place on large platter. Sprinkle eggplant with salt and let stand for about 30 minutes to allow the salt to draw out the bitter juices.

Lightly beat eggs in a small bowl and add a pinch of salt. Spread bread crumbs over sheet of aluminum foil. Dip the sandwiches into the eggs and coat with bread crumbs.
