Deviled Easter Eggs - Perfect for #EasterWeek!


Welcome to day 7 of #EasterWeek hosted by Bernadette from Rants From My Crazy Kitchen
This week we are celebrating Easter and Bernadette’s blogging anniversary with all kinds of delicious recipes and a giveaway! From appetizers to ham recipes, we have everything you need for a great Easter dinner or brunch, and one lucky winner will receive a $200 Amazon gift card. 

These eggs can be edited for nearly any holiday. Well, Halloween and Easter in particular. To be honest, they're famous as my Halloween "alien eggs" where I mix the yolks with guacamole or just food coloring (depending on what I have on hand, and place them on my table.

But they work just as well as Easter eggs. Look at that gorgeous color! No food coloring here, just beet juice and vinegar, making for an almost pickled deviled egg.

These are so friggin delicious, I could eat a whole tray myself. The vinegar gives it a nice extra bit of flavor, and keeps it firm, so extracting the yolks doesn't ruin the egg. Enjoy!

  1. Ashley, what a great idea! I've got both red beets and golden beets from the farm share, and you've got my wheels turning thinking up the colors I could create.
    And that's not even considering the flavor of a pickled deviled egg, which sounds divine to me.

  2. These are so pretty!! And LOVE that they're naturally colored! WIN!

  3. I've never pickled eggs before, but they have such a beautiful color -- I think I need to try it!

  4. LOVE the idea of mixing the yolks with guacamole for cool Halloween eggs! I've only ever had normal deviled eggs. Can't wait to try these ones!

  5. I love using beets in deviled eggs - and have used them in the filling part but I so love how you used them with vinegar to color the eggs - these look gorgeous and I would so love to sink my teeth into one!

  6. I love how bright and festive these are! Next time I make deviled eggs I'll have to consider these :)

  7. I still can't get over this great place I recently visited! This isn't only a good place. It is also one of the best around here. There isn't a listing of the unique offerings, although there should be! These LA event venues were magnificent!
