Colorful deviled eggs two ways

8 servings; 15 min preparation time; 10 min cooking time.

Happy Easter, everyone! Today I made an Easter special – deviled eggs. We can’t have an Easter brunch without serving eggs, so I thought of putting my own spin on the traditional recipe. This recipe is not only suitable for Easter, but it could be used for any dinner party or other celebrations.

Deviled eggs are nothing else than a hard-boiled eggs that are filled with egg yolk-mayonnaise mixture. This time I didn’t use mayonnaise, because I wanted to make them healthier. I used Greek yoghurt instead. Because of its thickness, it didn’t make the filling runny and it was very light and delicious.

Furthermore, I decided to use some food coloring and make the eggs colorful and pretty. Food coloring is completely natural product (at least the one I found), so don’t be scared to use it. We use it in cakes after all.

Last but not least, I made two different versions of the filling – one vegetarian and one with Serrano ham. You can make endless variations just using the same base, so use your favorite products and imagination and create beautiful deviled eggs.


Ingredients

  • 4 eggs, hard-boiled

for the vegetarian version:

  • 2 egg yolks, hard-boiled
  • 1 tbsp Greek yoghurt 10%
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp fresh dill, minced
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper

for the ham version:

  • 2 egg yolks, hard-boiled
  • 1 tbsp Greek yoghurt 10%
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp black olives, minced
  • 1 tbsp Serrano ham, minced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper


Preparation

Put the eggs in a pan with cold water and salt. Bring the water to the boil. Boil for 8-10 min until hard-boiled. Transfer the eggs to a bowl with cold water. Then peel the eggs.

Cut the eggs in half. Remove the egg yolks using a spoon. Depending to the food coloring you are using, make dots with different colors on a piece of kitchen paper. Wrap the egg whites with the paper until the whites are colored. Be careful not to damage them. My food coloring was in small tubes, so I could make dots on the whites directly. Then I used kitchen paper to absorb the extra food coloring. Set aside on a plate to dry until you prepare the fillings.

Vegetarian version: Mix the ingredients in a small bowl. Mince the dill very fine. Use a fork to break the egg yolks and mix them with the rest of the ingredients. Transfer to a piping bag. Use any piping tip of your choice and pipe the mixture to the egg whites. Decorate with minced dill.

Ham version: Break the egg yolks using a fork. Add the rest of the ingredients. Add minced ham and minced black olives. Season according to your taste. Pipe the mixture to the remaining egg whites. Decorate with Serrano ham. Enjoy!

      1. It sure looks it must have. The family/friends gorging on them must have had even more fun. I did, I ate and ate and ate. I never do otherwise.
