What I like Wednesday: Dyed deviled eggs

For Easter, I made deviled eggs. The cool thing about them? Elisabeth and I dyed the egg whites!

Put eggs in a bowl of cold ice water, peel eggs after 10 minutes. Then I dyed the eggs (after cutting them in half and scooping out the yolk). My dye mixture was water, vinegar, and food coloring (if I remember correctly it was 2 cups water, 1 or 2 teaspoons vinegar and multiple drops of food coloring). Egg whites stayed in for about 2 minutes.

Although I’m not a huge fan of deviled eggs, I LOVED making these and am definitely going to dye boiled eggs again. I’ll just find a different use for them this time! Perhaps in a salad?
