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.

The eggs came out great for this 2015 Easter!!! Thanks so much for the great idea!! I used the Paaz egg color kit just as directed, however since I coud not fgind neon kit I used the "Deluxe" kit that had 9 colors (as opposed to 5) which included the purple, hot pink and a teal so I used those colors and PERFECT! I was so scared it was going to take forever, but since you can put like 3 to 4 whites at a time, it was done in 20 mins. However, I did used my own way for the yolks. ;) For those of you concerned (as was I), no vinegar taste from the dye! I posted a picture...

This is the time of year for this recipie, just love it and it makes a stunning display on the Easter table.
Is that ever a good question on the egg salad.
Reminds me of the year my sister put blue food color in the fudge!
You probably wouldn't want to use all the colors, just maybe 2 at the most. Red and yellow make orange. Your yolk would be yellow and would have to keep that in mind.
Absolutely everyone that sees these eggs makes the comment of how did you do this?

These have been a hit for several years now and I no longer dye the shells but the egg whites like you do here. It just occurred to me yesterday I wonder how it would look if you mashed them up and made egg salad? Maybe something I will try.
