With Easter comes tons of boiled eggs and probably deviled eggs. If you use regular food coloring to dye your clean, boiled eggs, keep the dye and make some festive deviled eggs.
After the kids find all of the eggs, it becomes time to make something of them. Deviled eggs are a favorite and to make festive deviled eggs, carefully crack the eggs and remove the shells, rinse the eggs and place an egg in a jar or cup of dye and allow them to sit for a few minutes, checking for color saturation.
Adding food dye to food or food dyes in general is something I don’t usually recommend, however, occasionally, especially on holidays, I believe making things festive like this, adds to the magic.
When I dyed my eggs I used mason jars so they could be closed and kept in the refrigerator between the time of dyeing the eggs for Easter morning and again for dyeing the eggs to make deviled eggs. Remember that using clean, boiled eggs allows you to reuse the dye and the vinegar does not change or hurt the taste of the eggs, as many people even add it to their deviled egg recipe.
Once the eggs are dyed, set them out and allow them to dry for a few minutes. Slice 12 eggs in half lengthwise, and carefully remove yolks. Mash yolks with 1/4 cup mayonnaise, add 3 Tbsp relish, 4 tsp mustard, 1/4 tsp salt, and a dash of pepper; stir well. Spoon yolk mixture into egg halves. Garnish, if desired.
These will bring a smile to your guests face and might allow little ones to give them a try. To see more Easter ideas click here.
