Just in time for Halloween comes this festive undead treat. Inspired by The Walking Dead, master geek chef Chris-Rachael Oseland made zombie eyeballs that look and taste freshly plucked. She boiled eggs in water, food coloring, Chinese five spice mix and soy sauce. Then she cracked the eggs lightly and boiled them some more. Don’t hold back with the food coloring:
You want this egg to look like it fell from a walking corpse’s eye socket, not like it should be hidden in a fluffy green lawn alongside some Easter Peeps.
Chris-Rachael then pierced the widest part of the egg and added food coloring directly inside for the lifeless pupil. Then she bore a hole in the narrow end and stuffed in Pad Thai noodles to serve as optic nerves.
@JohnCFarrier I get mine fresh from the Farmer's Market. "Farmers Market" being my nickname for the barn where we keep the undead.— ChrisRachael (@ChrisRachael) October 18, 2013
