i was watching the kitchen on tv the other day and i saw the cutest way to make festive, marbled eggs that you can actually eat! obviously, being the chipper housewife that i am, i had to try to make an easy and appropriate easter appetizer: marbled deviled eggs.
to dye the eggs, you will need:
gloves [optional, but suggested]
step 1: hard boil your eggs.
step 2: cool [shelled] eggs off in a cold bath.
step 3: roll your eggs so they crack but do not pierce the flesh of the egg.
step 4: place each egg in a baggie and add in as much food colouring as desired. also add in some water, enough to cover the egg. shake [carefully].
step 5: tie the baggie up near the corner so the egg can soak in the colour bath. sit upright [i put mine back in the egg carton].
step 6: after 10-15 minutes, carefully remove the eggs from the baggies, rinse, and dry.
step 7: gently remove the egg shell and admire the marbled goodness!
as for the deviled eggs, you will need:
4 eggs [or as many as you’d like, just adjust the recipe accordingly]
3 tbsp reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 tsp vinegar
1 tsp mustard
salt & pepper to taste
how to make:
- carefully cut the hardboiled eggs length wise and scoop the yolks into a bowl.
- mix yolks, mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt & pepper until smooth.
- fill the egg whites with yolk filling and sprinkle with paprika.
wishing you a wonderful weekend with family & friends!
