Colorful Deviled Eggs for an Easter/Passover #SundaySupper

102_1854

My husband makes the best deviled eggs.  Period.  For years now his deviled eggs are always the thing our family and friends ask us to bring for Easter dinner.  Whether we’re having a formal, sit-down dinner, or an Easter Bar-B-Q, everyone wants the deviled eggs.  Now they even ask him to bring them to Thanksgiving dinner too.  They’re that good.

For Easter it has become a tradition to dye the deviled eggs.  It adds nothing to the taste, just makes them more fun.  This year I found a fun idea/recipe in Rachel Ray Everyday Magazine about how to dye eggs and tryed it in addition to the way we usually do them.  What a fun way to have deviled eggs for Easter this year!

Here’s what the “cracked” look eggs came out like:

For the plain eggs we just boiled and peeled eggs, halved them, and immersed them in a water/gel food coloring solution.  We made yellow, green, blue, purple and orange ones.

Then we made the yolk filling by combining the yolks with miracle whip, mayonaisse and mustard.  There are no specific measurements for these, you just use equal amounts of miracle whip and mayonaisse until the yolk becomes smooth.  Add mustard to taste. To fill the whites, fill a zip top bag with the yolk mixture and snip off a small corner to pipe the yolk into the whites.

When you finish filling all of the whites with yolk filling, sprinkle dill weed on top.

Serves: 24
Ingredients
  • 1 dozen eggs
  • dye(s) of choice (see notes)
  • miracle whip (as needed to obtain proper consistency)
  • mayonaisse (as needed to obtain proper consistency)
  • mustard (to taste)
  • dill weed
Instructions
For "cracked" look eggs
  1. Place eggs in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat, cover, and allow to cook (off heat) for 20 minutes. Drain water and immediately fully immerse eggs in ice water and allow to cool.
  2. Crack eggs with a knife or by tapping on a hard surface, but DO NOT PEEL.
  3. Place cracked eggs in a large pot and cover with water.
  4. Add desired dye (see notes for possibilities) and bring to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer for 20 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and allow to cool fully. Place in the refrigerator and allow to steep for 3 hours to overnight.
  7. Drain eggs and peel carefully.
  8. Slice eggs in half and remove yolks to a medium bowl.
  9. Continue with deviled eggs as directed below.
For "plain" colored look eggs
  1. Place eggs in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat, cover, and allow to cook (off heat) for 20 minutes. Drain water and immediately fully immerse eggs in ice water and allow to cool.
  2. Once eggs are completely cooled, drain and dry. Crack and peel eggs carefully.
  3. Cut eggs in half and remove yolks to a medium bowl.
  4. In a small bowl (or bowls if making more than one color) place cool water and 4-5 drops gel food coloring.
  5. Place egg white halves in colored water and allow to sit for about 30 seconds or until they are colored to the desired intensity (you may turn eggs over, if needed, to ensure that the entire yolk gets colored).
  6. Remove whites to a paper towel covered plate to dry.
  7. Continue until all whites are colored.
  8. Continue with deviled eggs as directed below.
To make deviled eggs:
  1. Mash yolks well with a fork.
  2. Combine yolks with mirecle whip, mayonaisse and mustard.
  3. Divide yolks evenly among whites and place yolk mixture into the cavity of the whites (you may do this with a spoon, or you may pipe with a decorating bag or zip top bag with a corner snipped, if you prefer).
  4. Sprinkle with dill weed (this is meant to look like Easter grass).
  5. Chill until ready to serve.
Notes
For "cracked" look eggs you can use a variety of things to color the water that you will steep the eggs in. Everyday with Rachel Ray suggests tea bags (2). Rosehip tea would make a nice pink color according to them. They also mention blueberry concentrate for blue. I used gel food coloring for the "cracked" look eggs I made, that way I could use the same gel food coloring for both the "cracked" look eggs and the "plain" color look eggs. The amount you will need will vary based on the amount of water you need to cover your eggs and how vibrant you want your eggs to be colored.
For "plain" color look eggs just use the gel food color of your choice and add it to a small amount of water. Add enough food coloring to the water to make the eggs as vibrant as you desire.
