Deviled eggs – also known as stuffed eggs, Russian eggs, or dressed eggs – are hard-boiled eggs that have been shelled, cut in half, and filled with a paste made from the egg yolks mixed with other ingredients such as mayonnaise and mustard.
This Christmas twist on this classic dish is perfect for brightening up the kid’s table – or the adults’ table for that matter!
You will need
- eggs already boiled
- food dye
1) I didn’t have any Easter Egg dye from last year, but I did have food dye. If you want really specific or bright colors, you can hit up the food dye section at a craft store, but I just have regular old 4 pack primary kit from Target. I prepped the food dye by following the box, but it was 1 tsp white vinegar and a half cup of HOT water.
2) Cut your eggs in half and remove yokes. You can prep those anyway you like. I like mine with Hellmanns.
3) Add your already boiled egg whites into the dye mixture, leave for approx 3 minutes and then rotate up. Once your eggs have the desired color, remove and pat dry with napkin.
Now if you find that your dye isn’t the color you want, I have to tell you that you can put a little on your finger (or a clean paintbrush), rub on the outside of the boiled shell and sit it down for about a minute. Then rinse off any excess. That is how I got this REALLY bright color for photos.
Done! Check out my gorgeous Dyed Deviled eggs that are sure to WOW everyone at the holiday table.
