Tasty Tuesday Treats from Teeka
Deviled Easter Eggs
Helman's Real Mayonnaise
Salt and pepper
Easter egg coloring kit (or food coloring)
Set eggs to boil. Boil for 10-20 minutes.
Prepare Easter egg coloring according to directions. I usually nix the vinegar but you can try it either way.
Once eggs are done, shell and cut into halves. Empty the yoke into a medium sized mixing bowl and put the white in your egg tray.
Use fork to mash the yokes until they are a course, crumbly texture. Add salt and pepper. Stir lightly.
Add Mayonnaise a heaping table spoon at a time, mixing before each dollop. Add Mayonnaise until the mixture is smooth, mashing out all the lumps as you stir.
After your egg shells have cooled, dip them in the Easter Egg coloring until they are the desired intensity. (you may need to rinse before you dip them if there is yoke residue inside them.) Gently blot with paper towel before returning them to the egg tray.
Fill the colored eggs with the yoke mixture.
Sprinkle with paprika or garnish as you would any deviled egg.
Great to get kids involved. Kids LOVE this. VARIATION:use food coloring for your favorite holidays. Pinks, reds, or any "romantic" color for Valentine's Day. Greens for St. Patty's Day. Red, White, and Blue for patriotic holidays. Yellows, oranges, reds... warm colors for Thanksgiving. Green and Red for Christmas. Any color combinations you can make with food coloring and your own imagination. :)
