Color-dying eggs at Easter is most definitely a beloved holiday tradition. Eating eggs, is too. Combining the two into a recipe for a classic deviled eggs side dish with a splash of color, makes for the perfect prepared ahead of time addition to this Springtime meal. The pastel colors take only minutes to dye the whites of the eggs to make a bright and cheery element to your otherwise (typically) colorless dinner. This is an easy (I repeat E-A-S-Y!) recipe, that even the most inexperienced of chefs should be able to tackle.

Servings: 24
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15-20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 Dozen Eggs
  • Food Coloring, 4 colors (we used neon)
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise (or more if you prefer a creamier texture)

Equipment

  • Large pot
  • Piping bag

Method

  • In a large pot, place all of your eggs into it, and fill with luke warm water, enough so that the eggs are covered.
  • Heat the water + eggs on high. Once it comes to boil, turn the heat OFF, cover, and let it sit in the hot water for 12 minutes.
  • After the 12 minutes of cook time is complete, carefully remove the eggs from the hot water and transfer them into a cold water + ice bath (this will stop them from cooking any further).
  • When cool enough to handle, remove from ice bath, and peel.
  • Slice peeled eggs in half, and spoon out the yolks, setting each aside.
  • Using 4 different bowls partially filled with water, color dye each bowl's water with 10 drops of food dye in each, making 4 bowls of 4 different color choices. Place the egg white halves into them in even numbers and let soak for 5 minutes.
  • While the whites are soaking, take the egg yolk centers, and add to it paprika, salt, pepper & mayo and mix well until a nice creamy texture has formed. Scoop it into a piping bag with a frosting tip of choice.
  • Remove the egg whites from their dye water bath, and set on paper towels, blotting any excess water.
  • Pipe the yolk filling decoratively back into their egg white shells/boats, and keep chilled in the fridge until ready to serve.
