7:00 am

Another Easter Recipe today in colours that are sure to delight the little ones (or scare them into NOT wanting to eat them, as my case may be!) In either case, they still taste delish! Who doesn't love a good snack in oddly unnatural bright colours - Share the fun!

What you will need:

Food Colouring
Pepper (+ any other ingredients you normally like in your devilled egg mix)


  • To make these coloured delights, you need hard boiled eggs. To make these, pop your eggs into a cold saucepan and fill with cold water
  • To the water, add a good sprinkle of salt. This is supposed to help stop the eggs from cracking during boiling
  • And next, add a splash of vinegar. This is supposed to keep the egg whites semi contained if they do end up cracking. But cracking is fine, we're going to end up peeling them anyway
  • Bring your saucepan and eggs up to the boil from cold. The slow adjustment of temperature helps to stop eggs cracking
  • Once in a rolling boil, pop on the lid, turn down the heat and allow to simmer away for 12 minutes or so
  • When your eggs are done boiling, immediately run cold water into the saucepan until the water is running cold. Quickly cooling the eggs will help to prevent the yolks from turning grey
  • Once cooled, peel your eggs and cut each egg in half
  • Into a separate bowl, spoon out the egg yolks 
  • Next, you'll need a glass or bowl for each colour of food colouring that you have
  • Into each glass, pour in some cold water, a tbsp of vinegar and a dash of food colouring into each
  • Into each colours, place in some of your egg white halves and move onto your filling while these soak up the colour
  • Using a fork, mash the yolks into a crumbly mixture
  • To this, add your mayonnaise and pepper to taste and any other additions that you might normally add to your mix like curry powder, or chives
  • Back to your coloured eggs and once the eggs have absorbed the food colouring to your liking, spoon them out and rest on a paper towel
  • Apart from eating them, the fun part for me is to spoon or pipe the devilled egg mixture into the yolk hollow
  • Arrange on your plate and chill before serving
  • Remember that once served, you don't want your eggs out of the fridge for any longer than two hours
