Yield:
24 deviled egg halves

Ingredients

  • 12 eggs

  • green egg dye

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise

  • 2 small stalks celery from the heart, minced

  • 2 drops green food coloring, or as desired

  • 24 small fresh parsley leaves

Directions

  1. 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.

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

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

  4. 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.

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

  6. 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.

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