I saw this on Pinterest and I made a whole bunch for Easter this year.
I did them by trial and error for the color...and forgot to take a picture of the final outcome!!

When we have family get-togethers I always bring the eggs...and the buffalo ones go the quickest!

Ingredients

    hard boiled eggs
  • 5 Tbsp
    mayonnaise, heaping
  • 1 tsp
    celery salt
  • 1 tsp
    black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp

How to Make Pastel Deviled Eggs, Spicy Too!!

Step-by-Step

  1. Peel and halve the eggs and scoop out the yolks and set aside.
  2. Place the halves of eggs into bowls with water and about 5 drops of food coloring. Make sure the water covers the eggs completely. The more coloring you put, the darker the eggs.
  3. I let the eggs sit in the water over night. I feel they retain the color much better after long hours in the food colored water.
    If not, you need at least 3 hours to let the color get into the egg.
  4. Add the mayonnaise, celery salt, black pepper, garlic and mustard to the egg yolks and mash well.
  5. When ready to assemble the eggs, take them out of the water and dry them off. Then stuff the yolks back in the egg. (I use a piping bag to look pretty.)
  6. OPTIONAL:
    I will then dip a fork into buffalo sauce and drizzle on to half of the eggs. I love spicy food and this really puts it over the top!
  7. Let the deviled eggs chill for at least 1/2 an hour.
    They should be ready to eat and enjoy!!
