Ingredients
  1. 10 eggs
  2. 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  3. 3 drops food coloring per color
  4. ½ cup olive oil based mayonnaise
  5. Mustard, chopped chives, ground pepper, bacon bits, to taste (optional)
  6. Pinch of paprika, for garnish
Instructions
  1. Put eggs in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, turn down the heat to low, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Drain water using a colander and cool the eggs with cold running water.
  2. Peel the eggs, and then cut them in half. Put the yolks in a separate bowl. Set aside.
  3. Fill drinking glasses (one glass per color) with around 6 ounces of water and add the food coloring. Add 1 teaspoonful of cider vinegar to each glass and mix.
  4. Place the eggs in each color and take them out after 1-2 minutes, or until desired color is achieved. Dry eggs on a paper towel.
  5. Mash the yolks with a fork until crumbs are a small, uniform size and add ½ cup mayonnaise.
  6. Add a little more mayonnaise if more creaminess is desired. Fill the eggs with the yolk mixture by hand using a teaspoon or use a food decorator. Fill the eggs, but not completely (so you don’t run out).
  7. Then, go back add a little more yolk mixture to the tops of each. Garnish with a pinch of paprika.

 Egg-cellent Ideas

Add some pizzazz to your deviled eggs with extras like mustard, minced chives, freshly ground pepper or bacon bits to taste (salt isn’t needed). You can also tie-dye the eggs by adding a few more drops of food coloring to the glass once the eggs are already in the water. Get creative!
