How To Color Deviled Eggs
hard boiled eggs
non fat plain yogurt or desired amount
mayonaise (Hellman's prefrred)
salt & pepper
Cut eggs in half and take out yolks and place them in a medium bowl.
Use a pastry cutter or fork to break up yolk until it's super fine.
Add yogurt, mayo, mustard, s&p and whip up with spatula until smooth and creamy.
Place mixture into piping bag fitted with a 2D tip.
Mix 1 cup hot water and 1 teaspoon Americolor food coloring and 1 teaspoon vinegar. The vinegar helps the color stay bright, I tried it both ways and the eggs with vinegar have a brighter color.
Place egg whites into the colored water and let sit until desired color is achieved about 1-2 minutes.
Take out egg whites and place on paper towel to allow excess color to drip off.
Then arrange eggs on platter.
Pipe the egg yolk mixture into the egg white halves.
I prefer Americolor Food Coloring, the colors are rich and vibrant and there is no taste. I used super-red, red-red and navy blue for these eggs.
