Easter Deviled Eggs

by Laura

No fab Five post for today because Easter Fest continues on through next week!  Bring on the eggs.  One Easter tradition at our house usually includes dyeing the shell of hard boiled eggs, but why not dye the eggs out of their shell this year?  It can be done and is a fun way to include deviled eggs, another Easter tradition, on your Easter menu.

I just used regular old food coloring from the grocery store baking isle.  I did however select to use the neon variety.  You just remove the shell from your hard boiled egg, cut each egg in half, and remove the yolk and reserve for later.  Then you dye the whites of the eggs just like you would when you dye and egg with it’s shell on.

Some colors take longer than others to achieve the level of darkness that you want.  I used pink, purple, and turquoise.  The turquoise took the least amount of time to get the intensity that I wanted.  Both the pink and purple took some time.  I found this to be a fun way to dye eggs and bring some color to your Easter dinner.

Easter Deviled Eggs


Scale

Ingredients

  • 10 hard boiled eggs
  • food coloring
  • 1 tsp vinegar for each color you are using
  • water
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip or half of each (I use Miracle Whip)

Instructions

  1. Remove the shells from the hard boiled eggs and slice each egg in half.
  2. Remove the yolks from the egg halves and place in a bowl. Set the yolks aside.
  3. Get enough glasses or mugs for the number of colors you want to use. Fill the mugs or glasses 2/3 of the way full with cold water.
  4. Add 3 drops of desired food coloring along with 1 tsp vinegar to each mug or cup.
  5. Place egg whites in the mugs and allow to sit in the food coloring until desired color is reached. I could fit 3 egg whites in each of my mugs at a time.
  6. Remove whites from dye and drain on a plate lined with a couple of paper towels.
  7. Take the reserved yolks and mash them with a fork. Then mix in the 1/2 cup mayonnaise with the mashed yolk.
  8. Pipe or spoon the yolk mix into the colored egg whites. Makes 20 deviled egg halves.

Thank you for this awesome idea! My 3 little girls and I always color eggs, but then I put them in the fridge and forget about them until after Easter. I’m the only one in my house who enjoys deviled eggs and egg salad, so inevitably some go to waste, which I hate. This year we are going to do this so we can still have the fun of coloring the eggs -AND- serve the pretty, deviled eggs at Easter dinner! My extended family will love them! Thanks!!

Just had to update- I did these with my two oldest girls (ages 6 and 4) and they turned out beautifully! I used two regular liquid food colors and three colors were with the gel food colors. We left our eggs sit in the solution for 20 minutes and WOW are they ever bright and beautiful! Thank you again- I think we will do it this way from now on!

Carly, go to your local Walmart or grocery store. They all sell small boxes of McCORMICK Food Coloring. They are tiny bottles of LIQUID food coloring drops, sold in 4-count boxes.
I am not sure what YOU were thinking they suggested to use, but it’s obviously not right. McCormick’s food coloring is perfectly safe to use for this. I’ve been using McCormicks for almost 30 years now, and NEVER had any issues.

Victoria January 24, 2015 - 10:10 am

Carly, you are using FOOD coloring, the same one you use in pickings and frosting. They are safe to eat as long as you do not have an allergy to them.

ONE drop of cyan and maybe two or three drops of the pink. You would have to use the NEON colors, as the author did, though, because if you use primary colors, it will be MUCH darker.

Reply
Jennifer April 15, 2014 - 1:53 pm

Of course, now that I think about it for a second, you shouldn’t HAVE to mix colors unless you lose a bottle or run out. The Neon coloring set SHOULD come with a neon purple.

That is not cold enough. You need to run cold water over the eggs until they feel cool to the touch. the water in the mugs is simply for dying the eggs.

Mandy March 30, 2013 - 6:35 pm

I just did this. The only problem I ran across is that the shells and skin were sticking to the eggs when I was peeling them and this made them come out mutilated. Instead of using vinegar, I just used water and food coloring and left the lighter colors (green and orange) in longer and the darker colors (blue and pink) didn’t need as much time. I also put yellow food coloring in with the yolk mixture to make it brighter.

Reply
Caroline April 3, 2013 - 10:39 am

The shells and skin were probably sticking because the eggs were fresh. If the eggs are a little older when you boil them, you shouldn’t have a problem.

Reply
Julia W September 4, 2013 - 4:10 pm

When shells stick to the egg…that actually means you cooked it for too long.

I don’t boil my eggs to hard boil — I place eggs in a muffin tin — bake in oven set at 225 (donot preheat oven) for 30 minutes. Cool. The shells comes of easily even after being in the fridge for a few days!
There may be a few tiny brown spots on the egg white where the egg touches the bottom or side of the muffin tin — but it’s not burnt!

Donna April 7, 2014 - 10:43 am

Yes, I agree with the comment below that the age of the egg has to do with the peeling process. The older the egg the easier it is to peel.

We have done this every year since I was a small child. We just used the same coloring that we dyed the hard boiled eggs with shells in. You don’t taste the vinegar. But we always used the white vinegar. I’m not sure if it makes a difference. My kids are all grown up now but still look for the colored deviled eggs for Easter dinner. I hope this helps.

You can make one adjustment and have great tasting deviled eggs. Just use Thousand Island dressing instead of the mayo/miracle whip. You just keep adding the dressing and stir until you get the yolks as creamy as you want. I make these and everyone wants the recipe!!! I tell them it is very difficult so they get ready to write the recipe down and then I hit them with “all you do is mix TI dressing with the yolks…tada!

There is 1 tsp of vinegar in about 2/3 of a cup of water. If you think about the amount of vinegar that will be on each egg it’s so small it’s immeasurable! You won’t taste it and besides a lot of people add vinegar to the egg yolk mixture.
