    12 eggs, hard boiled
    Enough beet spread to make a dark pink color
    12 egg yolks, mashed

    Place the eggs in boiling water and boil for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and test egg for doneness.(take egg from water and spin on flat surface if spins -it's done- if it wobbles it's not)
    When eggs are done remove shells by peeling off carefully- starting at wide end.
    Cut eggs in half lengthwise and remove yolk. Place eggs on platter. Place yolks in small bowl with enough beet spread to make a smooth dark pink color and pipe mixture into eggs on platter. Trim with a parsley sprig, if desired.
