Eastered Eggs

We coloured normally white and boring Devilled Eggs with food colouring the same way you would dye Easter eggs, except out of the shell and I can’t bare to call these adorably colourful eggs “Devilled” as they are just too pretty. So I’ve renamed them “Eastered Eggs”. Have fun with your friends dyeing eggs and enjoying the fruits of your labours by eating them when you are done! This tasty treat was inspired by foodjimoto.com.

  • 12 eggs
  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Food Color
  1. Place eggs in a medium pot and fill with COLD water until the water is approximately 2 inches higher than the eggs.
  2. Add a pinch of salt and a tablespoon of vinegar to the water.
  3. Heat on high uncovered until water comes to a roiling boil.
  4. Turn heat down to medium and cook for 1 minute.
  5. Remove pot from heat, cover and let sit in hot water for 12 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, put cold water in a medium bowl and add ice.
  7. After the 12 minutes remove eggs from hot water and place into the ice water bowl and let cool for 5 minutes.
  8. Once cooled, crack the egg shells and peel the eggs.
  9. Slice the eggs in half lenthwise and remove the yolk into a separate bowl and set aside.
  10. Fill glasses with 1 cup water, 1 tsp apple cider vinegar and 3 drops of desired food colouring.
  11. Place egg halves into the dye and leave for 5-10 minutes until they are the colour you want.
  12. Remove from dye and place on paper towel.
  13. Meanwhile, mash egg yolks with a fork until crumbly.
  14. Mix in mayonnaise until creamy.
  15. Place mixture into a piping bag (or put in ziplock sandwich bag and cut off one corner) and fill eggs with the yolk mixture.
  16. Enjoy immediately or keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

NOTES: The vinegar in the boiling water makes eggs easier to peel and the vinegar in the dye makes the colours brighter. This will not alter the taste of the eggs and you will not taste the vinegar at all.
