Deviled eggs are simple and easy to snack on, but this recipe takes deviled eggs to another level. This can be a great appetizer to add for your Fourth of July barbeque cookout. I’ve heard deviled eggs can be tedious to make, but I notice they are gone within seconds at every gathering I go to that has them. Even though they can be a bit fussy to make with the dye, this gives The Fourth of July spread another twist. This tutorial by Allrecipes is so creative and goes by fast with the instructions. I like how it shows step-by-step with the ingredients listed on the screen. Overall, these red, white and blue deviled eggs look tasty.
- 3 drops red gel food coloring
- 2/3 cup water, or as needed
- 2 drops blue gel food coloring
- 1 box toothpicks
- 8 eaches hard-cooked eggs, peeled
- 2‚ tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon hot prepared horseradish
- 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
- 1/8 teaspoon salt, or to taste
- 1 pinch fresh-ground black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon smoked hot paprika
- 1 teaspoon snipped fresh chives
First, combine red food coloring and 1/3 cup water in a ramekin or small bowl; do the same with the blue food coloring in a separate ramekin. Gently insert 3 or 4 toothpicks about 1/4-inch deep through the center of an egg and balance it so that one end is dipped in one of the dyes. Follow the rest of the egg dying process by watching this tutorial by Allrecipes.
Next, mix mayonnaise, horseradish, rice vinegar, salt, and pepper into the boiled yolks and stir until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning based on preference. Transfer filling into a piping bag fitted with a large star tip. Fill the egg white half with the deviled egg filling.
I love how colorful and playful this red, white, and blue deviled eggs recipe is. I haven’t made deviled eggs ever or had them for a while. This recipe makes me crave and want them more.
