Happy Easter everyone!
This year I’m not at home with my family, and so I’m a little sad.
If I was home I’d be in Church with everyone. There would be a happy family lunch, and I’d most definitely get an Easter egg! (Mom called and told me mine has been bought and I’ll get it the next time I meet them :))
So I needed some joy. Some colour. Some happy way to celebrate Easter.
This is what happened.
Aren’t they the cutest darn things you’ve seen?
All you have to do is soak hard-boiled egg-white halves in any food colour you want.
I did four colours.
The yolks are mixed with yogurt and mustard. I decided to lay off mayonnaise just to be healthier. It tastes wonderfully creamy and the minced garlic gives it even more flavour.
I think I didn’t make quite enough. These things are so cute and so delicious, you can very easily eat a ton of them without realizing it. They’d make such adorable appetizers for a party too!
I had so much fun making these.
The next time you need a pick-me-up, a pop of colour, or just have an egg craving, make these. You’ll love them 🙂
Coloured devilled eggs
Prep time: 20 mins
Cook time: 12-15 mins
Makes: 8 pieces
red, purple, yellow, and green food colour
3-4 tbsp thick yogurt
1 tsp mustard paste
1/2 tsp minced garlic flakes
salt and pepper to taste
sliced black olives, optional
1. Boil the eggs for 12-15 minutes. You need them to be hard-boiled. Once cool, peel off the shells and slice the eggs in half. Remove the yolks and place in a bowl. Carefully rinse the whites, and place them on tissue to dry.
2. Mix 1 teaspoon of each food colour with about 50ml water in 4 separate bowls. Add 2 egg-white halves into each bowl, and leave for 10 minutes. Try to use small bowls so the eggs are completely submerged for an even colour.
3. Add the yogurt, mustard, garlic, and salt and pepper to the egg yolks and mix to a smooth paste. Place this mixture in a zip lock bag, pushing it to one corner. Tie it up tightly with a rubber band.
4. Remove the egg-white halves from the colour and dry on tissue. Once dry, snip the corner of the zip lock bag, and pipe the mixture into each egg-white half in a swirl. Top with a piece of black olive if you like, and serve.
Happy Easter! Have a wonderful day and stay blessed 🙂
