Each year on Easter, we always have an abundance of boiled eggs! There are many things you can do with boiled eggs, but in our family, we love to transform them into deviled eggs. But, this year, you can make Easter that much more special by making Easter Deviled Eggs that are dyed all the pretty colors of the rainbow!
The first step is peeling the eggs. Peel the desired amount, and then rinse them under cold water to remove any small shell pieces. Next, you will cut the eggs in half, horizontally. After the eggs are cut in half, use a spoon to gently remove the yolks. Place the yolks in a bowl, and set aside for later.
Using as many colors as you like, in separate bowls, put a few drops of food coloring in about a cup of cold water. Mix until the food coloring is evenly distributed throughout the water.
Next, you simply place the egg whites into the dyed water, so they’re fully submerged. We used smal bowls here, but you can use whatever size bowl you have on hand. Leave the eggs submerged in the water for about 15 minutes. The longer they stay, the brighter the color becomes.
After 15 minutes, you can remove the eggs, and let them dry on a paper towel. While they dry, you can mix the egg yolks into your deviled egg mixture (every family is different, but for us, we use a ratio of 2:1 of Miracle Whip and yellow mustard to mix with the egg yolks) and whisk until smooth. Use a spoon (or if you’re feeling really fancy, and piping bag) to dollop a generous amount of the deviled egg mixture into each egg half. Viola! That’s it! Now you have adorably colored deviled eggs for Easter!
