Beetroot deviled eggs with step-by-step recipe.
About this recipe
Deviled eggs, aka dressed eggs or stuffed eggs, are hard-boiled eggs that have been cut into half and filled with a creamy stuffing made with the yolk. Beetroot-dyed deviled eggs are a very vibrant variation of the classic deviled eggs where the hard-boiled eggs are first dyed in beetroot to give the egg whites a nice pink colour.
They are not only a great party appetiser but they are also a perfect healthy snack or great in the lunchbox too. My daughter loves eggs but when it comes to hard-boiled eggs, she doesn’t like the dry texture of the yolk. Making them this way is just perfect to fix that problem for her. You may skip dyeing the eggs and make simple and classic deviled eggs with the same recipe.
To make deviled eggs, it is important to hard-boil them perfectly. If they are underdone, you will not be able to crumble and mash them. Also, the intensity of the pink colour depends on how strong the dye is. So if you want a more intense colour, let the eggs sit in the dye for a longer period.
