Introduction: DINO EGGS
Hey guys! I basically took a standard deviled egg recipe and made it my own with food coloring. It was super easy and fun, because I love colors. They were for a double birthday on Easter this year. Dinosaur themed! They loved the eggs and I always love the colors. :) What you need -
6 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and cut lengthwise
¼ cup Light Mayonnaise or Salad Dressing
½ teaspoon mustard
½ teaspoon white vinegar
1/8 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
Paprika for garnish
2 big Ziploc bags
Egg Tray of some sort for display
Step 1: The Recipe!
I used the recipe here - http://www.deviledeggs.com/classic_deviled_eggs.html . Only difference is that I used normal mustard and everything came out fine. Here are some tips !
-20 minutes to boil eggs
-Try and mash the yolk until it's not lumpy
-use any food coloring that you want
-have fun with it
After you half the eggs and separate the yolk, you need to put the egg whites into a plastic bag *ziploc* and add the food coloring with some water to barely immerse them. Then let it sit in the fridge for 10-15 minutes and flip it so the eggs get an even color. You can store your yolk mixture in the fridge too, until your egg color is perfect.
To put the yolk mixture into the egg whites, I like to scoop it all into another big ziploc bag and cut the corner off and pipe it into the eggs because it looks nicer that plopping it in there.
Step 2: Display!
For my egg tray, I was able to recycle and feel good about being green! :) I went to the dollar store just a day before Easter and they had sold out of their Skittle Eggs. They were sold in these green trays, and they were just sitting on the shelf, so I asked to take them home and they let me have their trash.
I cleaned them up and used them to hold my DINO EGGS. I really loved this idea because they are bright, colorful, already "egg trays" and they were re-purposed. :)
Step 3: Enjoy!
The recipe was easy, the eggs are good, the colors are vibrant and you are more excited about them because you had fun making them, right? RIGHT. :) Thanks for checking out my instructable. Hope you had an awesome Easter. <3
