My Hubby loves eggs, especially deviled eggs.  Then I came across the idea, to dye the eggs found here: http://www.foodjimoto.com/2011/04/easter-eggs.html, so I just had to make them for a family BBQ this weekend.  So here is a colorful version of deviled eggs.  Let’s get started.

Step 1:

Thank you for explaining things so thoroughly. I appreciate knowing that my preferred dressing, Miracle Whip, is also a bit safer! I would have bought mayo to make my easter deviled eggs, but I'll stick with what I have now. I also wanted to leave you a tip. When you are cooling down your eggs, fast and cold is the way to go, give the eggs a bit of a wack to crack the shells in at least one place as soon as you can handle them. I usually just use a table knife or hit them on the side of the pan. As they cool quickly, they will draw in just enough moisture as they cool and contract that they will be a breeze to peel. I've been doing this for decades but never knew that was also why I haven't had the little green ring on the egg yolks either. Thanks for a great instructable!

Kind of like the idea but was wondering. This might be a stupid question. I know the eggs are dried but does the coloring come off or stain you fingers when you eat them?
