Casper inspired Deviled Eggs #MoviesandMunchies

Thrill your little ghosts and goblins before they go out begging by serving up these spooky, spidery, deviled eggs with their dinner.

Spider Deviled Eggs

I was inspired to make these deviled eggs after watching the 1995 film version of Casper.  This is a fun, little movie suitable for family viewing during Halloween.  Not too scary and a good message to share.


I used to watch Casper when I was just a little goblin myself.  I remember feeling very special because his witch friend and I shared the name Wendy.  

Cam of Culinary Cam is hosting our Movies and Munchies group for October and asked us to watch any Halloween Movie that we wished and create a dish inspired by it.

I am not a fan of scary movies, but I am a big fan of Halloween and I do love a fun, not too spooky film to watch at this time of year.  

It is a very common theme for the blogging communities to which I belong.  Other films that I have watched, reviewed, and shared recipes from include Spiderwick, Addams Family, It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, Practical Magic, Only You, The Princess Frog, Ghostbusters, Beetlejuice, and Hocus Pocus

I was flying to Egypt and decided to peruse the Halloween Movies that Delta was offering this month during the flight.  When I saw that Casper was on the list it brought back fond memories of the cartoon that I used to love.  This film is nearly 30 years old and I had never seen it.  

Spider Deviled Eggs

A young, Christina Ricci, stars in this film and does a great job portraying a lonely girl who befriends a friendly ghost.  There are a lot of eggs in this film.  Casper makes Kat a sunny side up egg for breakfast, when she advises that she doesn't care for sunny side up, he makes her scrambled eggs.  Casper also turns into a fried egg at one point in the movie.

I decided to make eggs but as it is Halloween I "deviled" them and added a spooky spider on top.  Happy Hauntings my friends........
