Now I’m going to show you how to dye your own deviled eggs! It’s super easy, and doesn’t take that much extra time.

First, make yourself some egg dye. This is very simple- no need for any kits. Put some water in a glass, add a teaspoon or so of vinegar, and a few drops of food coloring. I promise, this isn’t rocket science. Also, the vinegar isn’t going to make the eggs taste bad. They’ll taste just as good as your favorite deviled egg recipe. ;-)

Go ahead and peel your eggs, cut them in half, put the yolks in a bowl, and rinse the white parts. Put the white halves in the dye, and then sink them with a spoon.

When they reach the desired shade (which will only take a minute or 2), carefully remove them with a slotted spoon, and place them on a paper towel to dry. (Let them dry face up, just like they’ll be served, so only the bottom gets ugly from sitting on the paper towel. No one will see that part.)

There are bound to be a few casualties, but don’t fret. Just use them as a little snack while you work. ;-)

The vast majority of your eggs will survive their color baths.

Now make the yolks into deviled egg filling. I make mine with a little salt, pepper, mayonaise (Duke’s brand, of course!), dry mustard powder, and sweet pickle relish. Yes, that’s right- sweet pickle relish will make them the most delicious deviled eggs you’ve ever tasted! And yes, dry mustard powder makes better deviled eggs than wet mustard, although the regular stuff will do in a pinch. Just add everything to taste. I also added some yellow food coloring to the yolks since we’re making them all Easter-ish.

(This is a little off topic, but I got this egg plate at the Dollar Tree… for $1!)

Stir it all up, and then fill the eggs with the deviled egg filling. I suppose you could be all fancy and pipe the filling in with a pastry bag of some kind, but I just spoon my yolk filling in. I skipped the sprinkling of paprika to keep them looking more pastel.

Btw, how do you like the peeps in our centerpiece from last year? Pretty cute, huh? :-) We also used the read-aloud Easter story napkin rings I made a few years back (that I strongly suggest you all print this year!)

    These are so adorable…I will definitely be trying them out. Deviled eggs (or stuffed eggs as we call them) is a standard favourite here. Thanks for the brilliant recipe!
