If these aren’t the darnedest cutest things you’ve ever seen, I don’t know what is.

I love me some hard-boiled eggs. I usually eat them just plain and hard boiled and save the “deviling” to my grandmother on holidays, but I decided to make these. Because they are precious. And totally worth the effort.

Now, I am going to tell you that the pumpkin is light. So if you want more, add more. Maybe another 1-2 tablespoons more.

This is just a way to reinstate that Halloween isn’t all about the candy. Wellโ€ฆ it is. But this way you can be festive and counteract the sugar rush.

Pumpkin Deviled Eggs
Inspired by Foodista

3 eggs
2 tbsp pumpkin
Pinch of cinnamon
Tiny pinch of cayenne pepper
Water, until reached desired amount (I used about 1/2 tsp)
6 sliced green onions

1. Put eggs in a pot of water and bring to a boil. Take the heat down slightly, to medium-high, to avoid cracking but continue boiling. Boil for 11 minutes.
2. Get a bowl of ice cold water ready, and after the 11 minutes, but the eggs in the water. Allow them to sit for a few minutes before peeling.
3. Cut the eggs in half, scrape the yolks out, and add the pumpkin and spices. Combine all with a spoon, or blend together.
4. Pipe pumpkin mixture into eggs, or just spoon inside.
5. Place a sliced green onion at one end of each egg, to resemble a pumpkin.
