I am reposting this from last year. Some of my image links were broken and I looked and looked to find the original photos and couldn’t so I only have a photo of the final result rather than the step by step photos I had before, sorry!
So ya all know that I have fun finding ways to work beets into recipes. Here is a super fun way to use beets to dress up your deviled eggs. I have a feeling that there might be a lot of boiled eggs hanging around your house after yesterday. . . here is something you can do to really make your kids’ eyes pop!
1. Peel your hard boiled eggs, cut them in half and put the yolks in a separate small bowl (if you are lucky they will peel better than mine did oh MAN were they awful!!!)
2. Soak the egg white halves in beet juice (either reserved juice from boiling the beets, or just straight from a can of beets). I did mine for about 3-5 minutes. The longer they soak the darker pink they will be.
3. Lay them out to dry on a paper towel face down so that the extra juice can run off. If your counter is porous, put a cookie sheet under the paper towel unless you want to have a permanent memory of this project stained into your counter top :).
4. If you are pinched for time, you can dry the beet juice with a blow dryer. You get extra bonus points if your hair dryer matches your eggs!! (that last sentence was a lot funnier when I had a photo of my bright pink hair dryer to back it up with;) )
5. Arrange your eggs face up.
P.S. The beet juce adds little to no flavor to the deviled eggs!
