Eggxtreme Deviled Eggs Recipe

We’re so eggcited that Easter is almost here! That means lots of fun, celebrating, and of course eggs! This year we wanted to take our appetizer game up a notch and make these super fun and eggciting deviled eggs. Deviled eggs are always an eggcellent classic dish to take to a dinner, or family gathering, but sometimes classics need a little bit of spicing up! So we basically just used our normal deviled eggs recipe, but we dyed the whites to make them eggxtra fun. You can make these in any color you want, but we decided to go for cute spring colors.

Eggxtreme Deviled Eggs Recipe

To make these cuties here’s what you need (makes 12 eggs):

6 eggs – boiled
Food coloring
2 tsp. Smoked Paprika
1Tbsp. Chives
1/4 cup Mayo
1 tsp. Dijon Mustard

To start off, you want to boil your eggs in water until they’re hard-boiled, or about 8 minutes. Then let them cool. To save some time, you can also do this the night before, so they’ll be nice and cool before you get started on the actual dish. After your eggs are cool, you can peel off the shell, and then slice each egg in half, carefully. Separate the yolk from the egg halves. Put the yolks in a bowl, and set the whiles aside while you prepare to dye them.

To make your dye solution, put about 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 tsp. of vinegar in a cup (you can use disposable cups, or you can be really cool and use old random cups like we did) then add about 4-5 drops of dye. Make sure you have a cup for each color you want to have. Let the eggs sit for about 1 hr. to get some awesome pigment.

While your whites are dying, you can prepare your filling. Take the yolks, and crush them all up with a fork or in your food processor. You can make them as chunky or as smooth as you want.  Add in your mayo, Dijon mustard, chives, and smoked paprika. Mix together thoroughly, and let chill for the remainder of your dye time.

Once your dye time is over, you can take the eggs out and rinse and dry them. Be careful because the whites tend to be fragile. If they’re not perfect don’t worry about it too much, because they will be fine when you add the filling.

Once you have your whites prepped and ready to fill, fill them with your yolk mixture. You can do it with a piping bag, or you can just spoon it in like we did. Whichever method you choose, is totally up to you. After they’re stuffed, sprinkle some more of the smoked paprika on top. Chill, then serve!
