Easter Dyed Deviled Eggs

When preparing for Easter this year I wanted to make some cute little treats for our family get together. Deviled eggs to me are a very typical Easter food and these pretty colored ones were so easy to make! I got the original recipe here but I tweaked it a little bit because I like my filling more flavorful than she used.


Here’s What You’ll Need:
-10 to 12 eggs
– 1 cup mayonnaise
– Mustard
– Paprika

– Food coloring
– White vinegar
-Cupe to dye in
Directions:
– Place the eggs in a pot and cover with water
-Bring water to a boil & then simmer for about 15 minutes
-Pour out the hot water and cover the eggs with cool water
-Let the eggs cool completely
-Peel the hard shell of the eggs
-Cut eggs in half length-wise
-Take out yellow yolk and put them in a separate bowl
-Boil about 6 cups of water
-In separate cups (However many colors of eggs you want you will need that many cups) add a teaspoon of white vinegar & a couple drops of food coloring
-Add about a cup of the boiling water to each glass of food coloring dye
-Place the egg whites into the coloring mix and let them sit until they are a pretty pastel color
-Remove the eggs when they are the desired color and let them dry on paper towels
-Mix up the egg yolks until they are evenly crumbly
-Add about a cup of mayonnaise
-Add a little salt and a little pepper
-Add several squeezes of mustard
-You can make the filling any way you like, just add the stuff in little by little until it’s the flavor that you want
-Once the filling is the desired taste put it into a small zip lock bag
-Cut the tip off one corner of the zip lock bag so that you can easily squeeze the filling into the egg whites
-Once all the filling is in each of the eggs garnish them with a little paprika & then refrigerate!
