I'm a HUGE fan of deviled eggs: there are so many variations and flavor combinations to try, and nearly every option is low carb! Here's some of the deviled eggs I've made before:
- Cream Cheese and Bacon Deviled Eggs
- Jalapeño Popper Deviled Eggs
- Halloween Deviled Eggs
- Spicy Buffalo Deviled Eggs
- Huevos Rancheros Deviled Eggs
But these Easter deviled eggs are a little bit different: the focus is on the egg whites, not the filling. In fact I've made the filling as plain as it comes – just the egg yolks blended with mayo, salt, and black pepper.
These eggs *will* take a little while to make, but your guests will really appreciate your efforts. Think of it in four stages: hard boiling the eggs, dying the egg whites, making the filling, and finally piping the filling back into the eggs.
How to Make Easter Deviled Eggs
Dying the eggs was actually easier than I thought it would be. Once the eggs are hard boiled, cooled, sliced in half and the yolks removed, I dunked each egg white half into a bowl that contained water, a little vinegar, and a few drops of food dye.
I used a wire slotted spoon from a candy decorating set to turn the eggs around and remove them from the dye. The time spent for each egg to become colored differed a little, but it was around one minute – although I removed it frequently to check that it didn't turn too dark as I wanted soft pastel shades (as you'll see in the final photos I think the orange eggs were left in a little too long as they are much darker than the others). I used a mixture of liquid food dye and gels to get the colors that I wanted, and I found that the eggs in the liquid dye colored a lot quicker than those in the gel.
After all the eggs were colored, I made the filling by combining the egg yolks with mayonnaise, salt, and black pepper. Although traditionally you can mash them, I find that with this method I never get them as smooth as I would like, so I used the small food processor attachment on my stick blender.
Then I spooned the mixture into a piping bag with a star nozzle, and filled the cavities of each egg.
I don't think they need any other garnish – I just let the pretty colors speak for themselves!
