Patriotic Deviled Eggs – CRAZY good deviled eggs. Eggs, mayonnaise, vinegar, salt, dry mustard, pepper, onion and paprika. Dye the hard boiled eggs red and blue for a fun patriotic snack!
Aren’t these Red, White and Blue deviled eggs cute?! I saw a few blog posts around Easter for dyed hard boiled eggs. I thought they were so cute. I decided to give them and try for the 4th of July. They looked and tasted great! These deviled eggs would be a great addition to your holiday BBQ next week.
The dying process is very simple and doesn’t require any vinegar. It requires only three ingredients – peeled hard boiled eggs, water and food coloring. I let the eggs sit in the dye for about 2 hours and then sliced them for deviled eggs. They had a great ring of color around the edge of the egg. I thought they looked great! The possibilities are endless! I am already planning on some orange and blue eggs for the upcoming football season. Have fun with it!
