Check out this Colour Cracked Deviled Eggs recipe for a fun kid-friendly holiday treat.

Growing up Easter was always filled with decorating hard-boiled eggs in all sorts of designs and colours. Filled with colourful stained hands and WAY too many eggs to eat! It was always a challenge to find new and exciting ways to eat those hard-boiled eggs.

Now that I have kids of my own, I wanted a fun and healthy food project to do with the little ones this holiday. I remembered all the fun I had decorating and trying to create the coolest egg I could. I want to pass on those beautiful experiences on to my children.

Here in Australia, dye kits are nowhere to be found, the stores are filled with chocolate eggs, bunnies and excessively priced $$$$ Kinder surprise eggs. Does this country not do hard-boiled eggs? Honestly, as a kid I don’t remember getting any chocolate eggs… Were my parents just healthy hippies or has this holiday turned into a chocolate mud bath?

I saw some cracked dyed eggs one day as I was scrolling through Pinterest – as you do. Don’t know who to credit for the original idea but I think it was for a Halloween snack? Thought I’d get my little guy to help and make some healthy Easter egg alternatives to all the chocolate he was eating!

Instructions
  1. Place your eggs in a pot of water and bring to a boil. Once eggs get to a full boil, turn off heat and cover and let sit for 15 minutes.
  2. Crack the shell of the hard boiled egg with a mallet or kid friendly hammer. Placed cracked eggs (with the shell still on!) into a zip-lock. Use one zip-lock for each colour you pick. Place 2-4 drops of selected food colouring on each egg and gently move around in the zip-lock. Let eggs sit for 10 minutes, then remove shells and rinse excess dye off the eggs.
  3. Slice eggs in half lengthwise. Gently scoop out the yolk and place into bowl. Mash yokes with a fork and mix in the mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper. If you want a very smooth consistency place ingredients in a blender for 10 seconds. Scoop yolk mixture back into the egg whites. Eat and enjoy!
