Really I could NOT believe the reaction I got from these. Everyone loved them!

I am also sharing with you how I make these healthier than traditional deviled eggs.

Deviled Eggs are a really popular item to serve at parties, BBQ’s, holidays, birthdays, Sunday dinners and more.

Here are some other all time favorite ways to make deviled eggs.

They taste so delicious, they fooled everyone into thinking they had the full-fat mayo in them. I just love when that happens, don’t you?

How to hard boil eggs:

Place a dozen eggs into a 4 qt pot. Cover eggs with an inch of water. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil uncovered. Once the water has come to a boil, turn the heat off, cover pot with lid and let the pot sit on another (cool) burner.

Time the eggs large 15 minutes, extra large 17 minutes, and jumbo eggs 19 minutes. Set a timer.


Once the timer has gone off, pour off the hot water and replace it with cold water covering the eggs and 2 cups of ice. Allow the eggs to cool for at least 15 minutes.

Gently smack the bottom of the egg (the wider part of the egg is on the bottom) on the counter and begin peeling eggs. The thin membrane has a gap between the egg and the shell at the bottom when the eggs are hard boiled and once you start to peel the eggs from the bottom the membrane will be broken and make it easier to peel them.

The membrane should come off with the eggshell. Some eggs are more difficult to peel than others. I’ve made hard boiled eggs with “fresher” eggs, older egg and sometimes I have trouble, but all in all I have the most success with this method.

Slice all the eggs in half lengthwise.

Before I get into the rest of the post about eggs, I thought I’d share with you my new favorite knife. I just love this Cook’s Utility Knife from Rada. Rada Knives are all Made in the USA and you won’t believe how reasonable they are. I have been using Rada Knives for over 15 years now and I just love that I can afford to add knives to my collection whenever I want and they won’t make me go broke.

Rada has a great knife sharpener works wonderfully.

I always have sharp knives and it’s really easy to use. It even sharpens their serrated knives.

I’m not being compensated by Rada, I just thought I’d share with you something I use every day in my kitchen with you.

They have a large selection of knives so if you are interested here is a link to the Rada Website.

I think I’m going to order knives for gifts, who wouldn’t want a new knife. I just wrote a list of gift ideas and this one is going to the top of the list.

remove the yolks to a medium bowl.

How to dye Deviled Eggs


Mix one cup hot water with one teaspoon Americolor food coloring (these are very concentrated gel colors that have a high pigment content that is what gives the eggs such a vibrant color, if you use unconcentrated colors the results will not be as vibrant often even if you use two or three times the amount of the coloring I use, test the color, leave the eggs in longer that may help) and a tablespoon white distilled vinegar, mix it up well so the eggs to get spots from unmixed color.

Place the egg white halves into the bowl with color and soak them for 1-2 minutes or until the desired color is reached.

use a pastry cutter for making deviled eggs smooth


Mix egg yolks with a pastry cutter until there are no lumps. A fork will work if you don’t have a pastry cutter, but a pastry cutter just makes it easier.

Then add all the ingredients in the recipe for this delicious “skinny” version of deviled eggs and whip it up nice and smooth with a spatula.



place mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 2D tip and pipe into the egg white halves.

perfectly cooked hard boiled eggs that are perfectly peeling instant pot


Instant Pot hard boiled eggs: place the eggs on the rack in the instant pot, with one cup of water, time eggs for 5 minutes. Allow the eggs to come down to normal pressure by themselves for 5 minutes after the cooking time is done, then quick release the total time will be about 15 minutes including the time it takes to come to pressure before cooking starts. Then place the eggs in an ice water bath to cool, then you’ll be able to easily peel the eggs.

How to make Red White and Blue Deviled Eggs

deviled eggs are decked out in fun color, great for any celebrating. Patriotic, red, white, and blue are fun for Memorial day and July4th, use other colors for other holiday celebrating.
Course: Appetizer, Egg
Cuisine: American


  • 1 dozen hard-boiled eggs
  • 1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt or desired amount
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise I prefer Hellman's/ Best Foods
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • salt & pepper


  • Cut eggs in half and take out yolks and place them in a medium bowl.
  • Use a pastry cutter or fork to break up yolk until it's super fine.
  • Add yogurt, mayo, mustard, s&p, and whip up with a spatula until smooth and creamy.
  • Place mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 2D tip.
  • Mix 1 cup hot water and 1 teaspoon Americolor food coloring and 1 tablespoon vinegar. The vinegar helps the color stay bright, I tried it both ways and the eggs with vinegar have a brighter color.
  • Place egg whites into the colored water and let sit until the desired color is achieved about 1-2 minutes.
  • Take out egg whites and place on a paper towel to allow the excess color to drip off.
  • Then arrange eggs on a platter.
  • Pipe the egg yolk mixture into the egg white halves.


I prefer Americolor Food Coloring, the colors are rich and vibrant and there is no taste. I used super-red (red-red is another option) and I used Navy Blue.



I even made some eggs to have all three colors on each.

They were a bit more time consuming, but so cute.

I wore plastic gloves so my fingers wouldn’t get stained by the color and took each egg and dipped each side into the colors. I switched gloves so there wasn’t any transfer of the colors.

    Oh I just love these! I love the healthier deviled egg recipe too! I’m a bit of a deviled egg addict.

  2. I was wondering how you got these so vibrant, now I know. Americolor is the reason! I loved adding greek yogurt to deviled eggs too, gives it a nice tang!

    1. Americolor really has the best colors and results in my opinion, it’s the only color I use 🙂

    2. It’s Americolor Navy Blue, I find it at Cake supply stores or order it online, the red is super-red. I love Americolor food colors they have a great selection and are gel based colors with no taste.

  3. Diane you are a total genius. I mean this is so over the top cool I’m almost speechless. And that never happens. I cannot get over how pretty these are. I wish I was throwing a 4th of July bash so I could impress everyone with your deviled eggs.

    1. Oh Kim, you made me blush! I have been thinking about doing red white and blue eggs for months, they were at the top of my list for July 4th, I’m so glad I did them, deviled eggs will never be the same over here!

    1. No they do not end up having the taste of vinegar at all, I was surprised. I tried them both with and without, the colors were much brighter with no vinegar taste.

  4. So that’s the trick to colored eggs! Love how you turned something so simple into something festive. I’ve been known to eat half a tray of deviled eggs….. lol

  5. 4 stars
    I made these yesterday for my 4th of July gathering – such a hit! The yolks were really runny though, if I make them again, I’d include less yogurt, but so creative and yummy nonetheless! Thanks for sharing. =)

  6. Hi! this is such a cool idea, i love it! i really want to make like this on my son’s birthday this coming sunday. i tried to search Americolor in some local store but seems its hard to find and i have no enough time to order it online, is there any substitute food color that you can recommend? Thank you!

    1. I find that Americolor is available at cake decorating/supply stores. That is the only color I use as others are either water based or often have an aftertaste when I use them in frosting/icings. I’m sure you would be able to find Wilton at a craft type store and they have strong colors that will work.

    1. No, they don’t dye your mouth (like over colored cupcake frosting does if that is what you are thinking) the egg absorbs the color and I’ve made many varieties and you don’t see it on peoples mouth. If someone eats about 5 of them, then maybe their tongue will get some color, but not noticeable on lips and teeth the way icing colors that area.The color is diluted in water not used full concentrate.

    2. Hi, no the coloring does not get on your fingers once the coloring has “dried” and they are refrigerated.

  7. wow! this was just linked to a post on foodiecrush, 4th of July recipes, I’ve never seen this before, love the adorable colors! thank you for this recipe!

  8. Thanks for the recipe and cute idea! I stumbled upon this post yesterday on Pinterest. Then today I saw it on facebook. Same recipe (copied and pasted) and then the person used your picture. She made it seem like it was her recipe. When I commented that she should credit your blog, she blocked me. Anyway, thanks for the great post!

    1. Well I’m happy you found my blog and it’s sad the reaction you got, but not surprising at all. People who aren’t honest will do anything to stop others from talking 🙂 Hope you find more recipes you’ll enjoy on my site, thanks for messaging me!

  9. Hi! Question…the narrative part of the post states a TABLESPOON of vinegar for dyeing the egg whites, whereas the actual recipe states a TEASPOON. Which is correct?

    1. I use a tablespoon, sorry about the typo. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

  10. Such a amazing post thanks I just love how colorful these are and they will be sure to impress the next time I make deviled eggs.

  11. I mean this is so over the top cool I’m almost speechless. And that never happens. I cannot get over how pretty these are. I wish I was throwing a 4th of July bash so I could impress everyone with your deviled eggs.

  12. I am grateful to the owner of this site which really shares this wonderful work of this site.That is actually great and useful information.I’m satisfied with just sharing this useful information with us. Please keep it up to date like this.Thank you for sharing..

  13. Thank you for all this info, it’s going to make it so easy for me to be the hit of parties all summer, these eggs are so pretty!

  14. I think this is one of the most significant information for me. And i’m glad reading your article. But should remark on some general things, The web site style is perfect, the articles is really great : D. Good job, cheers

  15. These eggs are really amazing, I made one batch already and will be making more next weekend. Love the colors!

  16. These are so pretty… I made them and everyone loved them, thanks for all the tips, they were delicious, looked great and I’ll be making them again for July 4th.

  17. I’m curious as to why two red colors. Are you saying either one will work or did you add both of these reds to the bowl of water and vinegar to achieve this red shade? I know a true deep red is HARD to achieve. I’ve had to deal with that both in doing ceramics years ago and now in cake decorating. A true black is just about as bad at times too. Just need to know whether I should use one color in the bowl or both. Thanks. At least in the area where I live I have rarely met anyone who doesn’t love deviled eggs. At the reception after a funeral, church dinner, family reunion, picnic, you name it, they’re one of the very first things to do and men especially seem to LOVE them. It may be an old fashioned food idea but its a real goodie and I for one am VERY glad they aren’t “out of fashion” so to speak as so many delicious things we used to make in my childhood have now become. The nice thing is the versatility. If someone wants to make their “secret family” recipe rather than this one with yogurt, these work just as fine. If entertaining a bunch of young women, you can be sure they’ll appreciate these lower fat versions.

    1. The food color I used is Super-Red from Americolor, there are other brands that make rich red colors now that didn’t use to be available. If you use a color that is “less” red, you’ll just need to add more. Some reds are hard to get vibrant, but the one I use I find very red.

  18. Wow, magical you have skills. I look forward to getting all your new emails. Your recipes are easy to follow and delicious. I’ve made so many already, from air fryer recipes to instant pot recipes and cakes and cookies. My family love all the recipes too.

  19. I love deviled eggs and I made these with my wife and they were fantastic, we like your recipes and have tried many of them, the kids really liked the fun colors.

  20. Great recipe and instructions, this is so wonderful and I made them and my family loved them and they can’t wait for me to make them again.

  21. I am a regular reader of your blog and it’s full of awesome recipes. The best thing about your recipes is that you always provide content that is helpful for both the newbie and experts.

  22. This is one of the best recipes for eggs, and I just love the colors… these are so pretty and I love making them for holdiays.

  23. I love everything about these deviled eggs, they taste great, look so pretty and everyone gobbles them up fast, so make plenty!

  24. Love this, I made them all summer long and everyone just couldn’t get over how fun they were and they tasted great. I liked all your tips on hard-boiled eggs. I also made your beet dyed eggs, so pretty. Love getting your emails of new recipes!

  25. These colored eggs are so fun, I saw the Christmas colors you did also and am going to be making them for the holidays, I made the red and blue colors for 4th of July and Labor day, they got rave reviews. Tasted great too!

  26. Thank you for the wonderful recipe, these eggs are always a huge hit when I make them. Great recipe and tips! Thanks

  27. these are the cutest ever, I made them and everyone just loved them, they taste delicious and look so fun, perfect for any celebrating. I can’t wait to make them again!

    Where has this been all my life. I love making cupcakes and always just swirl or spread on the frosting and this looked so pretty I wasn’t sure I could do it, but I did it and it looked so beautiful. I’m making lavender frosting next week on cupcakes for a party and can’t wait to use this. Great video, so quick and simple. Thanks.
