Without fail, if I show up to a barbecue with deviled eggs they disappear within minutes. For July 4th, make your deviled eggs into red, white, and blue eggs that are really cool looking.
First, hard boil your eggs. As soon as they are done rinse them in cool water and tap the shells with the back of a spoon gently enough not to break them. I like to really bang them up so they have a great pattern.
Place the eggs in bowls with water and food coloring. Place them back in the fridge for 4 hours or so. Remove the shells carefully to reveal the colorful pattern underneath.
Slice eggs in half, scoop the yolks into a bowl and mix with desired amount of mayo. I divided mine in half and added blue cheese, or gorgonzola, to the filling for the red eggs and smoked paprika to the filling for the blue eggs.
These deviled eggs are fun, colorful, and make for great presentation. Enjoy!
