Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, remove from heat, and let eggs stand in the hot water for 15 minutes. Remove from hot water and chill at least 30 minutes in a bowl of cold water or in the refrigerator, until eggs are cold.

  • Prepare egg dye according to package directions in a large metal or glass bowl.

  • Gently crack eggs but do not remove shells so that the egg dye can reach the egg whites.

  • Place the cracked hard-cooked eggs into the dye, working in batches if necessary, until dye seeps through the cracks and colors the eggs slightly, about 5 minutes per batch.

  • Rinse eggs and peel to expose the green marbled color; slice eggs in half lengthwise.

  • Scoop egg yolks into a bowl and mash with a fork and mix in the mayonnaise and celery; stir green food coloring into the yolk mixture.

  • Spoon the yolk mixture into the egg halves; top each egg half with a parsley leaf.

I made my egg dye using 1 cup warm water & 1/4 cup white vinegar green food color. My eggs must have had really thick membranes because even though I thoroughly cracked the shells the dye didn't soak through to the egg white except for in a couple of places. WARNING - if you want to pipe the filling into the eggs do not use a star tip - the celery plugged the tip - I pushed a little too hard to try and clear it and ended up with a green egg yolk explosion. As for the filling it needs to be kicked up a notch. Thanks for a fun idea - it just didn't work out too well for me. Read More

This is a fun idea! Everyone at our gathering loved it. I plan to repeat it for Easter with pastels. Easy to do if you plan ahead for the dye to adequately color the egg whites. I let them sit overnight. But next time I'll make the yolk filling more interesting this time with some of the traditional ideas for deviled eggs. Read More

Not as easy as stated! Getting the marbled effect for the whites was far from easy & required far more effort than these directions noted. I had to take cuticle scissors & cut through the membrane - following some of the broken shell marks - before soaking to get anything like what was pictured. Way way too much work. Read More
