The next day, rinse the eggs in vinegar, and then gently remove the shells. The food coloring will have penetrated through the cracks, giving you a cool pattern.
Cut each egg in half, and remove the yolks. Place then in a small bowl, and combine with the filling ingredients. Mash together by hand, or use an immersion blender to speed the process along.
Using a star tip, pipe the green filling back into the egg whites. Sprinkle with paprika.
- 12 eggs
- Black & purple gel food coloring
- 4 tbsp mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp mustard
- 2 tsp worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 tsp Tabasco sauce
- Green gel food coloring
- Salt & pepper, to taste
- Place the eggs in a large pot. Cover with cold water by 1 inch. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil for 10 minutes.
- Drain, and then cool in cold water.
- Gently crack the shells by rolling on the counter, but don't remove any shell. Place the eggs in a ziplock bag.
- Add the black & purple food coloring and zip closed. Roll the eggs around until the are fully coated. Refrigerate overnight, for a total of 10-12 hours.
- The longer you leave the eggs, the more the color will penetrate. Leave them too long, and you'll get a splotchy mess rather than defined lines & patterns.
