Easter Deviled Eggs

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. Make Easter deviled eggs.

I just used regular old food coloring from the grocery store baking isle.  I did however select to use the neon variety. The egg recipe for the yolk mixture is classic and basic.  

  • LARGE EGGS THAT HAVE BEEN HARD BOILED
  • FOOD COLORING
  • WHITE VINEGAR
  • WATER
  • MAYONNAISE OR MIRACLE WHIP (I prefer the flavor of the Miracle whip)

You just peel the shell from your hard boiled egg, cut each egg in half, and remove the egg yolks and reserve for later.  Then you dye the whites of the eggs just like you would when you dye an egg with it’s shell on.

Get enough glasses or mugs for the number of colors you want to use. I recommend doing at least 3 different colors.

Fill the mugs or glasses 2/3 of the way full with cold water. Then add 3 drops of food coloring along with 1 tsp vinegar to each mug or cup and mix together.

Place egg whites in the mugs and allow to sit in the food coloring until desired color is reached. 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.  

Next, remove the whites from the colored water. Drain on a plate lined with a couple of paper towels. Take the reserved yolks and mash them with a fork. Then stir in the mayonnaise or Miracle Whip with the mashed yolk. I find a whisk or hand mixer can help to get it smooth.

Last, pipe with a piping bag or spoon the egg yolk mixture into the colored egg whites. Store in an airtight container until serving time. I found this to be a fun way to dye eggs and bring some color to your Easter dinner.
