Makes 24 servings
Food coloring of your choice
1/2 cup water per color you want
12 hard boiled eggs
paprika for sprinkling
2 tsp. spicy mustard
1/3 cup fat free miracle whip
pinch kosher salt
pinch fresh ground black pepper
Peel, rinse and cut in half boiled eggs. In small bowl, add boiled egg yolks. In cup (or cups), add a few drops of food coloring to 1/2 cup water. Drop egg half in color mix and let sit for at least 2 minutes. Meanwhile in yolk bowl, add mustard, miracle whip, salt and pepper and whisk to creamy. Set aside.
Remove egg halves from water and shake off extra water, sitting upright on plate, ready to fill. Using a spoon or squeeze bottle (if you don’t have a squeeze bottle, you can use a sandwich bag with the corner clipped off like a pastry bag), fill colorful eggs with egg mixture. Sprinkle tops with paprika.
You can serve them right away, but I like to refrigerate mine for at least an hour to make them super cold. I think they taste better that way! Keeps for 2 days.
Need to cover your eggs but don’t want plastic wrap sticking to them? Poke toothpicks into center of eggs and it will hold the plastic up and out of the food! You can even stick an olive on the toothpick before serving or just take the toothpicks out!
