festive marbled deviled eggs

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:
baggies
elastics
eggs
food colouring
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! IMG_7471

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
paprika [optional]

how to make:

  1. carefully cut the hardboiled eggs length wise and scoop the yolks into a bowl.
  2. mix yolks, mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt & pepper until smooth.
  3. fill the egg whites with yolk filling and sprinkle with paprika.

wishing you a wonderful weekend with family & friends!
