Ingredients for Perfect Deviled Eggs for Easter:

- 2-4 Tbs. Mayonnaise, Depending on your desired consistancy
- 1 Tbs. Dijon Mustard
- Salt and Pepper To Taste
- Dash of Hot Sauce (Optional)
- Food Coloring
- Toppings of your choice, such as: green olives, black olives, pickles and/or a sprinkle of Paprika
How to make Perfect Deviled Eggs for Easter:
- Fill several bowls about half way with water, and add desired color of food coloring to each bowl. Add it a few drops at a time and stir it until dissolved. Continue adding food coloring until desired color intensity is achieved. We even mixed our red and blue together in the same bowl to make a pretty purple.
- Gently scoop the yolks out of your hard boiled eggs with a small spoon and set them aside in a medium bowl. You will need them later.
- Put a few egg halves in each bowl of food coloring. Allow the eggs to sit, fully submerged, until they achieve the color you desire. This can take anywhere from 2-10 minutes, or more, depending on the color you are trying to achieve.
- When you remove the eggs from the food coloring, place them upside down on a paper towel so the excess food coloring can drain out. Let them dry for a few minutes while you are making your filling.
- For the filling, mash your yolks with a fork or a potato masher. Add in the mayonnaise, mustard, hot sauce, salt and pepper. Stir until smooth.
- Place a spoonful of filling in each egg. Top as desired and place on a pretty serving platter. Store lightly covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
How to make perfect hard boiled eggs:
Place 6 Eggs in a medium saucepan. Add cold water to covet the eggs by a couple of inches. Add a splash of white vinegar to the pan. The vinegar makes the eggs easier to peel. Place the pan on your stove over high heat and bring to a rolling boil. Let boil for 1 minute, turn off the heat, let the eggs sit on the stove in the hot water for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, they will be cooked perfectly and ready to peel.
