Deviled Easter Egg Notes
- Add about four to five drops of gel color to each disposable cup. You won’t need more than this, or else the color will be dark instead of a pastel-like hue.
- When peeling your eggs, be sure to remove the membrane. You can tell if it’s still on if the eggs feel rubbery. Your eggs should feel smooth to the touch. If you leave the membrane on, it will mess with the overall color of the eggs, and you don’t want that!
- When preparing the filling for your deviled eggs, you get creative and add other ingredients, such as relish in the mixture based on how you like to make your deviled eggs.
How Do I Make Hard-Boiled Eggs?
Need a refresher on how to make perfect hard-boiled eggs? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. Head on over to this post to learn all of my secrets.
Can I use Miracle Whip instead of mayo for the deviled egg filling?
Yes. If you typically prepare your deviled eggs with miracle whip instead of mayonnaise, you can do that with these Colorful Dyed Easter Eggs.
What’s the best way to add the filling to the hard-boiled eggs?
Using a piping bag makes adding the filling so simple. You can attach a star tip to your piping bag to give your eggs that special touch. If you don’t have a piping bag, simply use a Ziploc bag. You can add the filling into it, cut a corner off the bag, and then use it to squirt a generous amount of filling in each egg.
Do I serve the eggs immediately after preparing them?
It’s best to put your eggs in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes to allow them to get cold. You can make the eggs in advance, placing them in the fridge covered and allowing them to get cold enough before serving to friends and family.
