These Easter Deviled Eggs are a fun twist on traditional appetizers and a kid favorite! Colorful & delicious, they will brighten brighten your Easter feast!
It is a right of passage growing up that you will enjoy dyeing Easter Eggs with your Mom! At least it is in the United States! By the end of the dyeing session, of course, Mom has dye everywhere! And the kids’ fingers are dyed multi colored until a nice long bath can soak it off!
This is an easy project to get the kids involved in! You can get creative and dye the eggs different colors, or just crack the egg shells all the way around. Then dye the egg with the shell still on, to get a crackle effect on your eggs.
There are folks who would tell you to buy fresh eggs, because they peel easier. Having owned chickens for many, many years, I can tell you there is nothing further from the truth! Fresh eggs do not peel well. The reason for this is that the albumen, or egg white adheres to the shell when eggs are fresh. Here is a great article to explain a bit about it from PopSugar.
So this is one case where you do not want to search the expiration date on the package and find the newest eggs. My best advice is to purchase your eggs 10-14 days before making hard bolied eggs.
How to hard boil perfect eggs, every time
- Place cold eggs in saucepan and cover with cold water.
- Bring to boil over medium heat, uncovered.
- Once they boil, immediately remove the pot from heat and cover the pan.
- Let stand for 10 minutes.
- Place egg pan in sink and fill with cold water, until the water and the pan remain cold.
- Crack eggs and peel under running water, to help the membrane separate from the white.
- Dry thoroughly.
You only need 4 ingredients to make these delicious deviled eggs. They can be made a day ahead of time, but the presentation is better if made the same day. You can hard boil the eggs and peel them a couple days before. Store in tupperware container with lid so that the smell doesn’t contaminate your refrigerator.
How to make Easter deviled eggs
- Peel hard boiled eggs.
- Cut eggs in half lengthwise. Remove yolks into bowl.
- Mix Easter egg colors according to package directions. Place egg white in colors.
- Mash yolks with fork. Add mayonnaise, dry mustard and pepper.

- Dye eggs to desired shade and remove to wire rack to dry.
- Flip eggs over to thoroughly dry inside.

When eggs are totally dry, pipe filling into each egg white. Garnish with paprika, pepper and parsley, if desired.
Can you Freeze Deviled Eggs
The short answer is NO, you can’t freeze deviled eggs! The texture and appearance of the deviled eggs will suffer dramatically. The egg white will get hard and taste pasty.
