Fun twist on traditional Deviled Eggs.
First off take 8 eggs and throw em in a pot of water (Gently! We don’t want any eggy explosions!)
Turn your lovely egg bath onto medium and add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda.
(Fun fact: This helps with the shell removal!)
Once nice and bubbly, boil for 12 Minutes.
I found putting them in a bath of cold water for a minute or so and then peeling makes this much easier.
Then, Prepare the egg color bath…
First Off: This does NOT effect the taste of these little guys.
Make or buy some Beet Juice. (Homemade Beet Juice without a Juicer found HERE!)
Add a little water to your beet juice if needed, and drop em in!
I just dropped them in and took them right out. If you would like darker eggs leave them in a little longer!
(Also, parchment paper is a cutting board/counter saver here.)
Whip up/smash with a fork your filling ingredients. I used 8 yolks, 2 tablespoons of mayo (or greek yogurt!), 1 tablespoon relish (I used sweet), 1 teaspoon mustard, sprinkle of pepper, and a teaspoon of parsley. If it needs more moisture add in a bit more mayo or relish to your tastes!
To Fill: Use a pastry bag and tip, or in a pinch use a ziplock bag.
To Serve: Chop up some Cabbage if you so choose, maybe even throw in some green onion “grass” for fun! and fill your tasty little purplefied eggs.

Option B: Food Coloring
Fill a few bowls with about 3-8 drops of color depending how dark you want your eggs (Pastels are less drops and less soaking time.) Once they are peeled you may drop them in whole, or halved depending on the look you want. Then let them soak until they are the color you would like! (Only takes a couple minutes!) Pat Dry. Fill. Eat.
