These Green Deviled Eggs are SUPER adorable for any holiday, but something about making them for St. Patrick’s Day is just the perfect combination! I love me some deviled eggs, but for some reason, the green ones taste so much better! :) You certainly could change the food coloring to match your selected holiday! Now the recipe doesn’t exactly have measurements because you basically add as little or as much as you like for your taste in deviled eggs! ENJOY!
St Patricks Day Green Deviled Eggs recipe
- 1 dozen eggs
- cool water for hard boiling eggs, plus 2 c
- 2-3 tsp white vinegar
- green food coloring
- yellow mustard
- sweet relish
- onion, diced
- salt and pepper
- Hard boil eggs by placing eggs in a pot of cool water that covers the eggs completely.
- Once the water starts to boil, boil eggs for 10 minutes.
- After 10 minutes, turn off the burner and leave in water in pan until you can handle eggs to peel.
- Remove the shells from the hard boiled eggs and slice each egg in half.
- Next, remove the yolks from the egg halves and place in a bowl to set aside.
- In a small, shallow bowl, fill with 2 c of cold water.
- Add 3 drops of desired food coloring for every 2 tsp vinegar; depending on how dark you want you eggs, this can be adjusted.
- Place egg whites in the mugs and allow to sit in the food coloring until desired color is reached.
- Remove dyed whites and drain on a plate lined with paper towels.
- While eggs are drying, mix together egg yolks, mayo, mustard, relish, onion, salt, and pepper (all ingredients are to taste for your liking)
- Do start out with less mayo and add a little more at a time so you don’t have too much.
- Place eggs whites on a platter and spoon mixture into them in a heaping pile.
- Top with sprinkled paprika and refrigerate for at least 12 hours before serving.
