Debra's Story

Here is a fun way to include deviled eggs, another Easter tradition, on your Easter menu.
If your concerned that the eggs will taste like vinegar, no need to worry the eggs will have about the same taste of vinegar as you would if you had dyed them in their shell.

Ingredients

YOU CAN USE ANY FOOD DYE TO DYE THESE EGGS PAAS NEON DYE IS WHAT IS USED IN THE PICTURE. WILTON ICING COLORS OR CONCENTRATED GELS WORK GREAT BUT USE SPARINGLY. IF YOU WANT A MORE PASTEL COLOR. AND USE BOLILING WATER INSTEAD OF COLD WATER
10 large
hard boiled eggs
3 dash(es)
food coloring
1 c
cold water
1 tsp
vinegar for each color you are using
1/2 c
mayonnaise or miracle whip or half of each

Directions Step-By-Step

1
If you are trying to do the pastel shown in the picture you don't want to leave them in the dye for very long. Because the egg is very porous, they will take the dye very quickly!!! Give them a quick dunk in the water and very quickly pull them out to see if it is the color you want. Don't let them soak for long!!!!!
2
Remove the shells from the hard boiled eggs and slice each egg in half
3
Remove the yolks from the egg halves and place in a bowl. Set the yolks aside.
4
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.
5
Add 3 drops of desired food coloring along with 1 tsp vinegar to each mug or cup.
6
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 tim
7
Remove whites from dye and drain on a plate lined with a couple of paper towels.
8
Take the reserved yolks and mash them with a fork. Then mix in the 1/2 cup mayonnaise with the mashed yolk.
9
Pipe or spoon the yolk mix into the colored egg whites.

I wished I had thought of this idea myself, and the results are so wow that it will be on our Easter table every year.
I posted a pict on facebook and had many peeps ask me how to do that.

neatest idea I've seen in a long time. My son and I had a blast making these. He is a special person and just couldn't understand what Mom was doing peeling and then cutting the eggs and then putting them in the dye. He got the hang of it real quick! He doesn't usually eat deviled eggs but he sure ate these. Thanks so much for posting this! I have a feeling I will be making these for many years to come! We used the neon dye and the tsp. of vinegar, no taste at all of vinegar and the colors were beautiful!

I like to roll the hardboiled egg, in shell, on the counter pressing gently so it cracks the shell up, then dye them. It makes a mosaic pattern. Very pretty as deviled eggs!

I just love that idea! It's fantastic for kids but what an idea for Easter buffets. I'm doing this for sure.
