Bring on the eggs. One Easter tradition at our house usually includes dying the shell of hard boiled eggs, but why not dye the eggs out of their shell this year? It can be done and is a fun way to include deviled eggs, another Easter tradition, on your Easter menu.
- 10 hard-boiled eggs
- food coloring
- 1 teaspoon vinegar, for each color you are using
- 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise or 1⁄2 cup Miracle Whip
- Remove the shells from the hard boiled eggs and slice each egg in half.
- Remove the yolks from the egg halves and place in a bowl. Set the yolks aside.
- Get enough glasses or mugs for the number of colors you want to use. Fill the mugs or glasses 2/3 of the way full with cold water.
- Add 3 drops of desired food coloring along with 1 teaspoon vinegar to each mug or cup.
- Place egg whites in the mugs and allow to sit in the food coloring until desired color is reached. I could fit 3 egg whites in each of my mugs at a time.
- Remove whites from dye and drain on a place lined with a couple of paper towels.
- Take the reserved yolks and mashe them with a fork. Then mix in the 1/2 cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip with the mashed yolk. Season to your own taste.
- Pipe or spoon the yolk mix into the colored egg whites. Makes deviled 20 egg halves.
I found this recipe on Easter morning. Since I already had the eggs boiling to make deviled eggs, I decided to try this recipe. What a terrific idea this is! The platter looked so pretty. (I will post a picture when I get my camera phone back from repair). Thank you for posting this... just in time for the holiday. (Made for "New Kids on the Block" tag - Spring 2013)
