Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Spoon yolk mixture back into egg whites; smooth filling to be level with egg white. Put each egg back together.

  • Pour salsa onto a plate and assemble eggs upright into the salsa.

I have a different twist on this one. After boiling and cooling the eggs roll them on the counter to crack the shell all over but do not peel return the eggs to the cold water with just the tea and soy sauce in the water. Let them soak over night then peal the eggs. You will be delighted with wonderful individual patterns on each egg. Read More

I make Martha Stewart'a version of this (3 cups Earl Grey or other strong tea 1/4 cup soy sauce). After fully cooking the eggs shock in an ice bath then roll on the counter to lightly crack the shells. Submerge in the tea and soy sauce mixture but do NOT cook again. 30 minutes cook time is way too long. Let sit 3 days in the fridge in the tea and soy bath. No need to fill. Serve with black sesame seeds and kosher salt. Easier good flavor. Read More

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. Read More

I did a trial run this morning with only 2 eggs cause that is all I had....... and great recipe and technique. I can not stop chuckling over the remark of disgusting looking........ lol.... that is the point for Halloween. I will make these again soon...... after all it won't be long till Halloween and I am all for these cute recipes. I also do Martha Stewarts "Bat Wings" and they are black and creepy and wonderful tasting and I don't care for chicken that much. Read More

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. When I tried to roll the eggs - it created a few large cracks that resulted in an excess of the dying mixture leaking into the egg. One of my eggs had such a big crack from this method - enough liquid leaked in that the entire shell came off - dying the entire egg brown. Like other users have mentioned - this is mainly for aesthetics as opposed to taste. The one egg that got soaked in the mixture did have a noticeable taste difference however (IMO). Also like another reviewer mentioned I used my own deviled-egg recipe in place of the suggested one from above. Check photos for my results. Read More

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 colored water for 3 day in fridge I liked that variation to try.... It definately worked and was pretty cool. Mine needed the extra time to finish darkening but that was my fault. One of them did come out fully dark so I know it would have worked with the extra time. Read More
