Dying Deviled Eggs

Written by Jen Sill

Full confession:  I’ve been saving this one for awhile.

This is perfect for Easter.

I used it WAY back in February for a Bronco’s Super Bowl treat.  (I also made Rocky Mtn Avalanche Bars.  They were also a hit.)  Also – thank YOU for the idea.  (I asked on our FB page and you guys were so great to give me ideas!!)

Anyway, I saved it because it is perfect for Easter- Dying the whites of the eggs AND the insides.   (Mine are supposed to be blue and orange…)

Anyway,  the whole process was kinda fun.

 

  • 10 hard boiled eggs
  • food coloring  (several drops)
  • 1 tsp vinegar for each color you are using
  • water
  • ½ cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip or half of each (I use do 1/2 and 1/2)
  1. Remove the shells from the hard boiled eggs and slice each egg in half.102_2701
  2. Remove the yolks from the egg halves and place in a bowl. Set the yolks aside.
  3. Get enough glasses or mugs for the number of colors you want to use. Fill the mugs or glasses ⅔ of the way full with cold water.102_2703
  4. Add 3 drops of desired food coloring along with 1 tsp vinegar to each mug or cup.  (Since I used more eggs, I had to use more food coloring per glass.  For some, it was up to 10 drops)
  5. Place egg whites in the mugs/glasses and allow to sit in the food coloring until desired color is reached. I could fit several egg whites in each of my mugs at a time.
  6. Remove whites from dye and drain on a plate.102_2704
  7. Take the reserved yolks and mash them with a fork. Then mix in the ½ cup mayonnaise with the mashed yolk.  Add food coloring until your mix is the color you want it.  (Remember you are STARTING with yellow.  Whatever you mix will have yellow in it.  SO… you can’t make blue…. you’ll make green…)
  8. Spoon the yolk mix into the colored egg whites. Makes 20 deviled egg halves.
  9. Enjoy!
