Halloween - Bacon Deviled Eggs

One last minute Halloween appetizer. Try these spooky spiders.
Ingredients:
3 slices bacon (3 oz.)
8 hard-cooked large eggs
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
Salt and pepper
16 large pitted black olives
Directions:
Cook bacon until browned on both sides and crisp.
Drain on a paper towel until cool enough to handle.
Cut each egg in half lengthwise; gently scoop out yolks and place in a bowl.
Mash yolks with a fork, then stir in mayonnaise, green onions, mustard, and crumbled bacon until well blended. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Spoon or pipe about 1 tablespoon yolk mixture into the hollow of each egg-white half.
Cut each olive in half lengthwise and place on top of egg for the body.
Then cut the other half of the olive crosswise into thin slices to form creepy spider legs.
Serve immediately or cover and chill up to 4 hours.

Stay hungry my friend!
