Now that spring is hitting, your kids are no doubt asking you when you are going to dye eggs. And while that is fun (even if a bit messy), you can wow them at dinner tonight with colored deviled eggs , a fun way to enjoy this Easter favorite for young and old alike!
Today I snuck in some of these while prepping all the materials for my daughter to dye her own eggs. Of course after having them on the counter a few hours, they are long gone. Hopefully they will be as big of a hit in your home as well!
How to Dye Deviled Eggs
You will need
- eggs already boiled
- Easter egg dye kit
1) Prep your dye in bowls the way the back of the box says. In this case I wanted a darker egg color, so I used the vinegar method. Now I thought the eggs soaked in the vinegar would change the flavor but it didn’t for me. You can also use lemon juice for more neutral colors or water for more pastel colors.
2) Prep your eggs by removing the shell, cutting down the middle and removing the yolk. Put yolk in bowl for addition later back into the deviled eggs.
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.
4) Now it is time to create your yolk mixture. I crush my yolks in a bowl and then add Hellmans and mustard until I have the desired consistency I want. Most people prep these different, but since my family adores mine, I have learned to eyeball it over the years.
You can also dust with some paprika if you want color.
