Red, White and Blue Deviled Eggs!

Hey everyone! Planning for the Summer Holidays? Let's show our colors and WOW everyone at the Bar-B-Que with fancy deviled eggs! One of my most viewed posts is Dyed Deviled Eggs and I want to make sure everyone knows that dyes aren't just for Easter.
Directions:
  1. Standard Egg Dye: 1 tsp vinegar, 5-20 drops food coloring, 1 cup hot tap water (***see notes below).
  2. Hard boil eggs, peel 'em and dip them until you get the color you want. The easiest is white... oh yea, I do crack myself up:@)
  3. Cut in half and make your favorite Deviled Egg recipe.
Notes:
  • After you peel your eggs make sure you run them under cold water and get everything from the shell off. If anything is left on it will get darker then rub off leaving a white spot on your egg.
  • Peel, cut and pop the yolk out of all the white eggs you plan to use and keep them separate, they will pick up die from your fingers or touching the other eggs while they're wet. Keep red and blue separate too. I washed my hands between each color.
  • ***I didn't want these pastel, so I used 25 drops of red and 20 drops of blue with 1/2 tsp vinegar and only 1/2 cup of water. The blue was ready in about 4 minutes the red took about 8 minutes. I'm sure you can add more red to speed this up. (I made sure the cup I used would cover the egg by adding it before I peeled it and poured in 1/2 cup of water).
  • Roll on a paper towel, then let them sit for a bit so the dye dries. I'd keep all like colors grouped together. The white ones will pick up a little color where they touch the other eggs, I don't think it can be avoided.
  • Some of the white ones would look great with a flag toothpick!

  1. Deviled eggs are my favorite, although I usually put my egg mixture between bread slices! Cute and different dish to bring to a Memorial Day or 4th of July barbecue. xo,

  2. I did this after you had posted about it. You should have seen everyone trying to "peel the shell" off the egg! Haha! I definitely will be doing this again this summer.

I was never a great chef by any means.. Oh, I CAN follow a recipe.. but I can't help but feel a LITTLE flattered about the reaction over my deviled eggs! LOL!

  6. Ha, I am not feeling well and my brain isn't working as it should. I was trying to figure out how you got the eggs back into the little dyed half shells after you dyed the shells. Doh.
    Keep me away from the stove today.

  14. How cute is this?! I never in a million years would have thought to dye the actual cooked egg. I also like the ripple cut you were able to do.

    PS: Next time we go to Chicago my husband promises to take me to a Cub game :0)
