Mardi Gras Dyed Deviled Eggs

Have you heard there's this little party going on down south, I believe it's called Mardi Gras... I'm planning a themed dinner so I thought I'd add these Mardi Gras Dyed Deviled Eggs to the menu! Simply use food coloring and dip half of each peeled egg into green and the other half into purple, the gold kinda takes care of itself:@) Use your favorite deviled egg recipe and you're all set!
Pin It
I use 1 tsp vinegar, 1/2 C warm water and about 20 drops of food coloring for each color.
Dip them until you get the desired color. After each dipping I turned them upside down on a paper towel to drain.
I'll be honest and say purple isn't an easy color folks. For every 10 drops of red add 2-3 of blue. Mine kinda looked brown so I read to add a pinch of baking soda and did... figured it couldn't hurt.
For the best coloring, these eggs should be served the day they're made.

Have a happy day and laissez-les-bons-temps-rouler:@)
