Welcome to today’s blog post!
Here is a fun little appetizer that I threw together for the last season premiere of Game of Thrones. I wanted to make something fun for the GoT’s viewing party I was planning to attend. So, what better than my signature Deviled Eggs with a dragon’s twist?!
What you’ll need:
Deviled Egg recipe
Qty of eggs called for in your recipe
Food coloring of choice
Pot for boiling eggs
Containers for food coloring water (One for each color you’re making)
First, put your eggs to boil. I used 18 because it is what I had on hand, but I usually use 24 which is recommended for best results using my recipe for the filling. I tend to overcook my eggs for this just to be sure the yolk cooks well enough for the filling.
While the eggs are cooking get your colors ready. Choose however many colors you want to make. I used red, blue and green. You will need one container of water for each color, make sure it is large enough for the number of eggs that you plan to put into each one. Then, add the food coloring to each container. I used 6 drops of each, but in hindsight, I should have used at the least 10 drops if not more. You want the color to be strong, so it really comes through on the eggs.
Once the eggs are done, drain the water out and refill the pot with cold water and some ice. This will stop the cooking process, and it makes it much easier to handle the eggs for this next step. Now we are going to roll the egg on the counter causing the shell to crack all around the sides and two ends. Be careful not to remove any chunks of the shell, just make sure to crack them well.
After you are pleased with the cracking in the shell gently place them into the colored water as you choose until they are all fully submerged in water. Let them sit for 3-4 hours.
I let them sit for four hours then peel to reveal the awesome colored lines.
Now we move onto the deviled eggs. Cut the eggs in half from top to bottom. Remove the yolks and put them all in a separate bowl to later make the filling. Set the egg whites aside on your serving tray. I have these trays with a lid which make it so easy to stack these in the fridge until I’m ready for them or to take them to an event (link below). You can use your favorite Deviled Egg’s recipe, or you can use mine. Once your filling is ready, use a piping tool for a fill effect. I use the Wilton Dessert Decorator Plus which is great for most anything and is very affordable (Link below). Fill each egg to your liking. Sprinkle a little paprika on top for some nice color and voila!
