This is a fun way to present your deviled eggs!

We do these for different holidays and for Super Bowl parties! I have also done these for weddings in the brides colors... always a big hit and great conversation piece!

pinch tips: Non-Stick Rice Every Time


12 large
1/2 c
minced celery
1/2 c
minced onion
1/4 c
sweet pickle relish
1/3 c
sour cream
1/4 c
1/4 c
ranch dressing
1 Tbsp
mustard, spicy brown
2 tsp
yellow mustard
1/4 tsp
salt (or to taste)
1/2 tsp
ground black pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

Place 12 large eggs in a sauce pan. Cover the eggs with water.

Bring water and eggs to a full rolling boil. Allow to boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Let sit for 5 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water.

Peel the eggs, rinse the eggs, pat dry the eggs.
Mix water and red food coloring together in a cup or bowl. Place one egg at a time into the colored water (color 4 eggs red). Leave set until the egg is the desired shade of color. Remove from colored liquid and gently "pat" dry... Do NOT rub!

Do 4 eggs Blue. Leave 4 eggs all White.
Finely mince the celery and onion and put in bowl with the egg yolks. Using a fork, mash the veggies and egg yolks together.

Add the remaining ingredients to the veggies and yolk mixture, stirring until well mixed.
Usining a teaspoon (or get fancy and use a decorator with a large star tip), and over fill each egg white half.
Refrigerate the deviled eggs until ready to serve.

*** This is a fun recipe for the 4th of July... I dyed 4 eggs blue, 4 eggs red and left 4 eggs white.

*** I also do this for other holidays and parties... Like for Super Bowl, I use the teams colors.... Easter... Muli colored...

Colleen , I've always just done these for Easter but your super bowl party for team colors would be great , put a sign on each plate for the each team only. They would be eating off each plate though but it would be a fun display. :D

I've done this at Easter instead of coloring boiled eggs, in all 4 colors. St. Patricks would be fun to do the eggs in green.
