Children of all ages enjoy dyeing eggs during the Easter holidays, and the colorful ovals serve many fun purposes from eating to hiding. However, once you remove the outer shell of the egg, the inside of the egg is still plain, old white and yellow -- just like any other day of the year. Spice up your next Easter gathering with hard boiled eggs that are dyed on the inside, and let them add pizazz to your tabletop.
Things You'll Need
- Hard boiled eggs
- Food coloring
- Cutting board
- Paper towels
- Glass containers
Hard boil as many eggs as you would like to serve. Once the eggs are cooked, remove the shells and discard them.
Cut the eggs in half using the knife and cutting board. Scoop out the yolks and reserve them to eat or use in another recipe. You can also leave the eggs whole, if you desire.
Fill glass containers about half-full of water, and then add food coloring to each one to get the shades you desire. Adjust the amount of food coloring, depending on the intensity of the color you desire.
Place the eggs or egg halves in the water, making sure that the entire surface of each egg is covered. Let the eggs sit at least one hour until you achieve the desired effect.
Remove the eggs from the water and place them onto paper towels to dry. Once they are dry, use the eggs for other recipes or serve them they are.
