Last year for St. Patrick’s Day, I came up with these vivid green deviled eggs that were splattered with edible gold paint. Let me tell you, they were (and still are) one of my favorite recipes that I’ve come up with to date. They were different, eye catching and just straight up fun. With that in mind, I knew I had to do something fun and different for St. Patrick’s day this year. I didn’t want to just dye the egg green because not only have I already done that, but that look really has been done by every person to make a St. Patrick’s themed deviled egg. Ever. So this year, I think I came up with a fun and unique twist (this pun fully intended, as you will see) on the green and gold deviled eggs!
These eggs combine green and gold yolks to present a festive and springy take on deviled eggs. Topped with a little ground mustard, and these are definitely a crowd pleaser. They’re perfect to pair with green beer.
They are a little time consuming but I think i’ve narrowed down the best way to swirl the colors and cause minimal headaches. It also helps if you’re drinking the aforementioned green beer while making these. You know, to stay on theme.
- A dozen eggs (more if you have a larger party)
- 4 tbsp light mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp Mustard
- Green food coloring
- Ground mustard
- Plastic wrap
- Piping bag
- Piping tip
- Hard boil your eggs
- Once eggs are done, remove and put into an ice bath immediately
- Peel the eggs and divide the yolks evenly between two bowls
- In the first bowl, combine the yolks with 2 tbsps of mayonnaise and mustard. Mix until smooth and well combined
- In the second bowl, combine the yolks with the remaining 2 tbsps of mayonnaise. Add in green food coloring a drop at a time, mixing as you go. Add until you’ve reached your desired level of “greenness”
- Lay out your plastic wrap and spoon yellow mix onto it. Try to keep the mix contained in almost a line
- Spoon the green mix next to the yellow
- Roll the plastic wrap tight, trying not to mush it too much and combine the colors
- Slide wrapped plastic into a prepared piping bag
- Pipe into your eggs and sprinkle with ground mustard. Voila! You have pretty swirled deviled eggs!
