SPD: Dyed Deviled Eggs


If you remember from yesterday's post, Pinterest and I recently took a little break from each other. I wasn't her, it was me. {We've all heard that one before right?} But seriously, I do want to get back onto tackling all my Pinterest project and slowly but surely I will. This week's project is actually a bit Easter related. While Easter has come and gone, it's still a fun project that could potentially be used at parties...baby showers, themed parties, so on and so forth.

Today I bring to you, Dyed Easter Deviled Eggs!





You know what the best part about this post is? I'm allergic to eggs. I don't eat deviled eggs. In fact, I didn't eat deviled eggs when I was younger when I could eat eggs. However, I am the official egg devil-er of the Timmer household. Apparently I'm good at it. So here's how to make your deviled eggs even prettier than before!

You need...

  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Leftover Easter egg dye or water, a few tablespoons of vinegar and food coloring
  • Mayo
  • Relish {I use dill and sweet relish}
  • Salt 
  • Pepper
  • Seasoning salt

Now here's what you do...
Go on an Easter egg hunt and gather up all the beautiful eggs you dyed on Easter Eve.




What you didn't dye eggs or go on an Easter egg hunt because you're an adult? Lame. You should rethink that next year. All the cool kids are doing it. {See above :) }

But if you seriously don't have any eggs, then boil your eggs and create your dye. You can do this by taking a mug, filling it 3/4 with water, add about 3 tablespoons of vinegar and a few drops of food coloring. The more food coloring, the brighter the eggs. But let's not over do it.

Peel your eggs, cut them in half long way {hot dog style if we're talking about folding paper in elementary school, anyone else call it that?}, remove the yolk and set in separate bowl.

Now it's time for the fun part! Take your egg halves and put them into your different colored dyes. Let them sit for at least a minute. The longer you let them soak the brighter they turn out. 

While the egg white are being dyed, you can make the insides. First mash up all of your yolk. Add some mayo. Sorry, I don't have amounts. Just add enough to make the yolks wet. Then add some relish, about 1-2 tablespoons and some of the pickle juice. This will make the mixture more wet without additional mayo. Add salt and pepper to taste. At this point, a taste tester is required for me. You couldn't pay me to eat that stuff, but apparently most people love that stuff! Usually they say it's awesome. If it's a little dry, add some mayo!

Remove your egg whites from the dye. Rinse under cold water. Put yolk mixture in the middle! You can spoon the mixture in or you can put it into a plastic baggie, cut off the corner and squeeze it on in! Magic :)




Then you end up with some pretty awesome eggs that look like this.




While you're at it, go ahead and drive your brother nuts by taking way too many Easter pictures. Here are some of ours, enjoy!





So bummed that Benny Boy is missing from our sibling picture :(
