  • Cut hard-cooked eggs in half lengthwise and remove yolks; mash yolks in a bowl with creamy salad dressing, salt, black pepper, hot sauce, and dry mustard until smooth.

  • Place red, blue, and green food coloring into 3 different bowls and add about 1 cup water to each bowl. Steep 8 egg white halves in each bowl, tinting the egg whites pink, light blue, and green. If color is too pale, add more coloring to bowls. Drain colored egg whites on paper towels.

  • Pipe or spoon egg yolk filling into colored egg white halves; cover and chill before serving, at least 30 minutes.

I did add just a little Worcestershire sauce and some vinegar to the filling, but that's just a personal taste preference. This is a fun way to style up Easter Eggs and turn an ordinary deviled egg into one with more eye appeal. Good idea Nancy Clancy. Read More

I wanted to make this recipe mainly for the colored egg part; however, I did scale it down and follow the recipe exactly. I hated the boiling method because it was a pain to get the shells off. My tried and true method never fails me, whether the eggs are fresh or old. So I will stick to that. I scaled the recipe down to try the filling and my husband said, "Where's the pickle relish?" I didn't think it was anything special either, so I made the rest according to my usual recipe with pickle relish and mayo. I had to double the food coloring to get the shade I wanted and it took about 15 minutes of soaking time. I think the colored deviled eggs will be a fun addition to the Easter dinner menu, especially for the Grands. Read More

I've saved this recipe in my recipe box a while ago but I tried for the first time Saturday and boy am I glad I saved the recipe ~ The eggs came out so beautiful. I received a lot of rave over them ~ I thought this was a great idea from the start and now there will be other ladies in the church trying out this simple but great idea of a recipe ~ They're not just for Easter but can be used for gatherings such as baby showers, etc. Thank you Nancy Clancy for posting your recipe ~ Sincerely, Mrs. Robin Burns Read More

Very creative, and fun! :) I just recently found a way to hard-boil eggs without a water bath...STEAM them, instead! Start water up to boiling in a deep saucepot that has a steamer insert available (put the steamer insert in right away when you turn the stovetop on, as well as the lid for the pot). When the water is at a rapid boil, carefully (I use a long-handled spoon) place the raw eggs into the pot, cover with the lid, and steam for 6 minutes for soft-boiled, 12 minutes for hard boiled. The shells come off beautifully, even if the eggs are right from the henhouse that day! :) I also made sure to steep the whites in the food color bath for 15 minutes, and they turned out beautiful! We used some pastel liquid food coloring I had on hand...perfect for Easter! Read More

These came out so pretty on a little Easter chick plate. I subbed mayo for the salad dressing just for personal taste. It was much easier to make than i had expected. Thank you very much for sharing. I'm sure i'll have these next year too. Lol and follow Nancy's advice......put some white ones in there too the coloring is great but may not be for all of your guests. 8) Read More

These were a huge hit at Easter! I eliminated the mustard and hot sauce as these were made mainly for kids as an alternative to the other egg dishes I was serving for brunch. Not only did the kids eat them so did all of the adults. The visual display on the table made them a must have for everyone! Read More

It takes a couple minutes to allow the die to soak in but they come out great! I don't add hot sauce to the filling but I do cut up a couple pieces of bacon and add it!! Read More
