Red White & Blue Deviled Eggs
What’s better than deviled eggs at a 4th of July or Memorial Day cookout? Red White & Blue Deviled Eggs, that’s what! They’re the perfect patriotic side dish!
The 4th of July is almost here, and many of us are planning backyard bbqs, picnics, & cookouts. I don’t know about you, but for my family – deviled eggs are a staple for those.
What’s better than deviled eggs to go along with your cookout? Red, white, & blue deviled eggs – that’s what!
And they’re just as easy to make as any other kind of deviled eggs you make. I used my favorite recipe for the eggs themselves (which I refer to as the best ever) – and you can use my recipe, or you can use any other recipe you like.
A lot of y’all like my dishes, so here’s the link to the red, white, & blue platter pictured if you’re interested.
Obviously, the first step is to hard boil as many eggs as you want to make. I use a dandy little egg cooker for making my hard boiled eggs (omelets, soft boiled, etc too), it’s one of those appliances I never thought I needed until I actually bought one – now I don’t ever want to be without it.
Peel your eggs as you normally would. Once they’re peeled, pour some water in two separate bowls. Add red food coloring to one & blue to the other, enough to get the color you want, and whisk the water until combined.
Place the half of the peeled eggs in the red water & the other half in the blue water. Put the bowls in the fridge for 2 hours for the color to set in.
Place a layer of paper towels on the counter (or a plate) to absorb any color drippings. Using tongs, remove the eggs from the colored water & dry thoroughly.
Cut them in half, remove the yolk, & prepare your filling as you desire. You can get the recipe for Best Ever Deviled Eggs by clicking here.
Scoop or pipe the filling into the eggs. Sprinkle with paprika. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
