For the past few days we’ve been thinking up Easter activities to do at home. Since there are no children in our house, most of them have been dog related. I can’t wait to show you what we come with on Easter Day! We thought about decorating Easter eggs using some Easter egg decorating kits we ordered online. But the dogs weren’t into it (they prefer Easter activities that involve eating the food). Not wanting the kit (and fresh eggs!) to go to waste, I decided to make Easter Deviled eggs.
To be honest, I’m horrible at following directions. I always wing it in terms of ingredients. That’s why I don’t post too many recipes. So if you want an exact amount to follow, here is a great Classic Deviled Eggs recipe. If you’re following that recipe, simply dye the eggs white halves between steps 2 & 4.
If you’re like me, and you’re fine with just getting inspired by recipes and doing your own thing, here is what I used and how I created the eggs:
Easter Deviled Eggs RECIPE
- food coloring
- Boil eggs for 10 minutes
- Rinse with cold water
- Peel eggs
- Slice eggs in half
- Put yolks in bowl and mix with mayo, a little bit of mustard and salt, pepper and paprika
- Dip egg whites into food dye
- Scoop yolk mixture into egg white halves
- Sprinkle a little extra salt and paprika on top
It’s super easy to do! Here are some extra tips to help you as well:
Stick to three dyes
The kit we had for decorating Easter eggs had so many dyes included. But you really only need three: pink, yellow and blue. From those three you can create tons of colors: dip the egg into yellow then pink and you have orange. Dip the egg into yellow then blue and you have green!
Make it healthier
My stepdad loves mayo, so I stuck to the classic deviled eggs recipe. But if it was up to me, I would use vegan mayonnaise. I’ve made deviled eggs at home with vegan mayo and they’re just as delicious.
