These Colored Easter Deviled Eggs are perfect for your holiday meal or any occasion you want to add a bit more color to. Fun recipe to make with the kids and delicious to eat.
I love deviled eggs. I could eat the whole tray in one sitting and not even feel guilty about it. I really am glad I only make them a few times a year for that reason!
As most of you know, my mom has moved in with us and she’s been a blessing to us in so many ways. I enlisted her help with this recipe and we had some fun with it. The egg dish is compliments of her talents from her ceramics class – perfect way to display these colored deviled eggs.
Dying hard boiled eggs is typically the thing to do around Easter, but dying the whites is even more fun, if you ask me. The dyed eggs are pretty to see in the Easter baskets or to hide for the kids, but these colored hard boiled egg whites are fun for adults (and kids) to do and yes, eat!
How to make hard boiled eggs
Dying hard boiled egg whites
Take your peeled hard boiled eggs and slice them lengthwise in half and scoop out the yellow yolks into a small bowl; set aside. Place the whites on a plate while you prepare the food color dyes.
I used the pastel food safe color dyes for this recipe. You can use whatever food coloring dyes you have, even check out some of the natural ways to color eggs too.
To dye the cooked whites, you prepare the food coloring dye the same way. You can omit the vinegar if you so choose to or add it into the water. I omit the vinegar and just use tap water. Gather a few glasses to use and add about one cup of tap water to each. In each glass of water, add a few drops of food coloring and mix.
You will need to let the egg whites soak in the colored water a bit longer than dying hard boiled eggs. The longer you leave then sit, the darker the color will be.
Once you have the egg whites the desired colors you want, gently remove them from the glasses and drain upside down on a rack or paper towel. Allow them to dry completely before filling with the deviled egg filling.
Making deviled eggs
Mash the yellow yolks with a fork and add the ingredients for the filling. Mix with fork or use a hand held mixer until smooth.
Fill a plastic bag with the filling and snip off a small piece of the corner of the bag. Pipe filling into each colored egg white. Chill and enjoy.
