The theme for this Don’t Just Pin It…Eat It meme is “Eggs.” Basically, find any recipe on your Pinterest boards that uses eggs as a main ingredient and make it. When you’re done, link up to Simply Stacie’s post so everyone can see your version of one of your Pinterest favorites. My recipe is pretty much as egg-based as you can get. I love deviled eggs, and thought these pretty pastel deviled eggs would be perfect for Easter.
How to Make Pastel Deviled Eggs
The directions are fairly simple, as long as you already know how to make regular deviled eggs. I don’t, but my mom does, so she actually did the majority of the hard work. This is how we did it:
Step 1: Hard-boil the eggs, let cool, then peel. When they fall apart and look like crap, chuck them back in the container, say “I plan to make egg salad later anyway,” go to the store and buy a bag of the precooked hard-boiled eggs. Cut them in half.
Step 2: Make your deviled egg stuffing stuff. There are so many different recipes and ways of doing this, but basically you mash the yolks together with mayo, mustard, and whatever spices you use.
Step 3: Dye the egg whites. Just put a few drops of food coloring into a cup along with 1/2 cup water and 1 tablespoon of vinegar. I used about 5 drops of coloring to reach my desired shade. Use less for really light-colored eggs, or more for darker ones.Drop the egg whites into the cups, let them sit until they’re the right color for you, then put them on a paper towel to dry.
Step 4. Add the deviled eggs mixture, arrange on a pretty plate, take 10,000 pictures to find one that properly portrays the prettiness of these eggs.This is my end result:
They turned out pretty awesome, didn’t they? Although this was inspired by an Easter-related recipe, it would also work great for baby showers. Or, play with the colors a bit and use them for wedding showers, using the colors of the wedding. You could pretty much use them for any type of party, really.
