Colored Deviled Eggs

Recipe from FOODjimoto

10 eggs

1/2 c. mayonnaise

5-6 Tbsp vinegar

5-6 tsp cider vinegar (optional)

paprika (optional)

food coloring

Put eggs in  a pot and cover with water.

Bring to a boil,  turn heat down to low, cover, and let simmer for 15 minutes.








After 15 minutes, cool the eggs by running cold water in the pot.










Peel the eggs, then cut them in half.








Put the yolks in a separate bowl.







Depending on how many colors you’d like, take out glasses, and pour 3 drops of food coloring, 1 Tbsp vinegar, 1 tsp cider vinegar, and 1/2 c. room temperature water in each.

Place eggs in glasses.







Take eggs out when they have achieved the color you are looking for.

Dry on paper towels.








Crumble the egg yolks with a fork.










Add mayonnaise ( a little at a time until you’ve reached your desired creaminess) and add any additional flavorings if you’d like- mustard, pepper, chives, etc.

Scoop or pipe (with decorating bag and tip) mixture into each egg half, and sprinkle with paprika.








Place on a white dish so allow for the eggs to fully show their color.

    I will make these again next year… only (note to future self) – use REAL food coloring, the liquid, not the gel! Yours look amazing! (Why would I save the very first time making deviled eggs for the night before a super fancy brunch?! Stress-out city!)

    Does anyone know if the vinegar you use in the food coloring leaves a taste on the eggs? I usually use the vinegar when I am coloring the shells but I’ve never tried actually coloring the egg whites and I’m curious if it leaves a taste because it soaks into the egg itself. Also, why regular vinegar and apple cider vinegar (optional)? I actually have both so I’m wondering if the dye soaks in better if you use both types or if it’s to give it a little different flavor because you can taste the vinegar.

      When I made them, they didn’t have a vinegar taste, but if you’re concerned, you can go for lighter colored eggs and leave them in for just a little bit so the vinegar doesn’t soak in at all. I’m not 100% certain on why apple cider is optional, but my thought is that it could be to help with colors and to offset the white vinegar taste 🙂

        Oops! Didn’t read carefully the directions! Just put eggs in glass of water with food color……no vinegar! They turned out just fine!! Maybe no need for vinegar?? Thanks for the recipe! They are perfect!

    You have in the ingredients a Tbsp of vinegar, then apple cider vinegar. What kind of vinegar is the first?
