How to create your 4th of July Deviled Eggs

Prepare your Food Dye according to the package directions. Make sure you are using a natural food dye. I did try to create these using blueberries, but they did not turn out. The dye just wasn’t strong enough. The Color Kitchen Dye Kit worked perfectly!

Take your eggs and carefully crack them all around.

Place your cracked eggs into the food dye. I let mine sit for 5 minutes on either side.
I prepared other dishes while setting a timer for each half of the eggs. It takes a bit of time, but if you’re busy, it flys by.

After the eggs have dried, peel off all of the shells.  Child participation is not required but encouraged…

When cutting your eggs, pay attention to the design. You want to cut your eggs so that the design is on the sides. This way, you can see the fun cracked look while the eggs are sitting on a plate.

Take the yolks from all of the eggs and place them in a bowl.

Spoon the mixture back into the egg whites.

Top with Paprika.
