Print Recipe

Its that time of year again! Party after party every where you turn. Fourth of July is as big as Christmas in my neighborhood, everyone has something going on. From kids parties to street parties to back yard BBQ's there is always something and someone around for it!

I host every other year, take a turn to take care of the cleanup. On the off years I always try to make a dish to take over to the neighbors. I try to make an appetizer or some sort of dessert. This year I thought I would try a classic favorite with a bit of a patriotic twist.

You can't really go wrong with deviled eggs. They are super easy to make, a classic favorite everyone always goes for when filling up their party plate. This year with really limited time I decided to make these classic favorites with a little holiday twist!

Without any extra ingredients than I already had on hand, a little extra food coloring and BAM 4th of July deviled eggs! They look super cute and festive and taste just as amazingly good as any other plain old boring white egg. Try them out for this years 4th of July holiday party! Your guests will be asking for your trick and the recipe!

To make, hard boil as many eggs as you would like for about 20-30 minutes. Train the water and place in an ice water to soak and fully cool. Remove all the shells from the eggs and set aside. In a bowl of water add the peeled eggs and 10 drops food coloring (for darker add more). Allow the eggs to soak.

One set, allow the eggs to fully dry and cut open the centers removing the yolks.

Using a fork, mash the yolks up. If you like a chunkier consistency just chop up slightly.

Add in the Dijon, pickle juice, mayonnaise and food coloring and mix to blend well.

Spoon or using a piping bag, add the filling into your hollowed egg. Chill prior to serving.

ENJOY!
