Today is Earth Day and in today’s climate (ha) we truly need to observe this important holiday and spread its positive message. Our planet is currently facing so many environmental issues, many of which we have a direct impact on! We humans need to do our part to keep our Earth healthy and clean, in whatever way we can.
Of course – since this is a blog about eggs, the best way I knew how to celebrate today (besides recycling, using my reusable water bottle and turning off the water while I brush my teeth) was to make Deviled Eggs!
This recipe is especially great to do with kids or for an Earth Day party. The colors are fun and unique and they still have that great Deviled Egg taste that’s always a crowd pleaser.
- A dozen eggs
- 3 tablespoons light mayo
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- Blue food dye
- Green food dye
- Pink Himalayan salt
- Hardboil your eggs
- Once eggs are done, place in an ice bath and then peel
- Slice eggs into halves and place yolks into a separate bowl
- Cover bowl with yolks and place in fridge
- Submerge egg halves into a large bowl with water and liberally add drops of blue food dye. I probably did about 15 drops
- Let eggs sit in dye for about 2-3 hours
- Remove eggs from dye and pat dry and set aside
- Remove yolks from fridge and mix in light mayo and mustard
- Once mixed, add green food dye. Again, be liberal with the color here
- Put yolk mixture into a piping bag or plastic bag (DIY style) and pipe into egg halves
- Sprinkle tops of eggs with pepper, pink Himalayan salt and paprika
- Impress everyone!
