  1. Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, remove from heat, and let eggs stand in hot water for 15 minutes. Drain hot water and fill saucepan with cold water; allow eggs to sit until cooled, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain water. Gently tap or roll eggs on the counter so the shell is cracked but still intact.
  2. Return eggs to saucepan and pour in enough water to cover eggs; add soy sauce, molasses, salt, and tea bags. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until eggs have absorbed color, about 30 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and leave eggs in water to cool to room temperature.
  3. Peel eggs and trim bottom of each egg so it will stand upright. Cut each egg lengthwise and scoop yolks into a bowl. Mix mayonnaise, red bell pepper, salt, and pepper into egg yolks until evenly combined.
  4. Spoon yolk mixture back into egg whites; smooth filling to be level with egg white. Put each egg back together.
  5. Pour salsa onto a plate and assemble eggs upright into the salsa.

These were great! I followed the recipe for the marbling of the eggs, but made my families traditional deviled eggs! They were a hit! Love that there is no food coloring involved.

Love the technique, a huge hit at my halloween dinner at home.

I missed the leave in water until cool for the color soaking, so my color was pale. I didn't try the actual seasoning, I was just going for the look. I read one review that soaked in cold colo...

All-in-all, this recipe worked pretty well... However, I feel like simmering them for 30min in that second round is a bit much. I'd suggest using a butter knife to tap and crack the eggs. Whe...

These looked really cool and were difficult to make.

These were a huge hit with my family at Halloween. I'll definitely make them again, but wish I could find a way for the yolks not to turn green from all the heat. Maybe not heat them up again ...
