Easter Stuffed Eggs

I've had some questions on how I did the stuffed eggs.

They are very easy to do.  You start off with the hard boiled eggs (I boil mine for 15 minutes.  Then drain the hot water off, bounce them around in the pot to get the shells really cracked, and then place them in an ice water bath.  After about 10 minutes they are ready to peel.)

TIP:  Last few times I've boiled eggs I've added a 1/4 cup ish of baking soda to the water.  It seems to really help making the eggs easy to peel.  This last batch half were fresh eggs and none were hard to peel.

After you've peeled the eggs, split them in half and remove the yolks as you normally would.

Then you will need to gently was the white halves to remove all smudges of yolk.

Add food color to a bowl of water, adding until it get to the depth of color you desire.  Put the egg halves in, making sure they are completely under.  (The purple ones are how they should NOT be.  I pushed them under after the photo.)

Let them soak for about 10 minutes.

Remove from the dye bath and let drain on paper towels.  You might want to have gloves for this, or you will have dyed finger tips too!

Even the paper towels come out pretty!  ;-D
