Deviled eggs are a signature side dish that no outdoor celebration can be without. They are made in several different ways and have been done for years. I wanted to put a little twist on them for this year’s Independence Day celebrations. They are the 4th of July deviled eggs!
4th of July Deviled Eggs
The fun-crackled design of these eggs can be done for any holiday. But they remind me of fireworks, making them a fantastic 4th of July tradition.
Because you can’t have a BBQ or potluck without deviled eggs.
I love watching my kid’s little fingers peel the egg shells off.
We used an all-natural egg dye kit for this recipe. You can also use our tutorial for using foods to dye eggs.

If you’re currently in the middle of figuring out what you’re going to bring to the potluck, save this pin and come back to it when you’re ready to cook.
Tips for making deviled eggs for the 4th of July
- We highly recommend using a natural food dye.
- These are perfect for any color scheme. You could even use them to teach about the colors of the rainbow!
- Make the perfect hard-boiled eggs by following the instructions in this collection of hard-boiled egg recipes.
- 1 Dozen Hard Boiled Eggs
- 1 pkg of Natural Food Dye
- 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon Yellow Mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- Pinch of Sugar
- Paprika for garnish
- Prepare the food dye according to the package directions.
- Gently crack your eggs all around.
- Place your cracked eggs into the food dye. I let mine sit for 5 minutes on either side.
- After the eggs have dried, peel off all of the shells. Child participation is not required but encouraged.
- You’re left with a fun-looking egg.
- Cut each egg in half length-wise. 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.
- Place the yolks into a bowl.
- Add the mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and sugar. Mix well.
- Carefully spoon the mixture back into the egg whites.
- Sprinkle with paprika.
