Deviled Eggs Christmas Wreath

Deviled eggs is a easy appetizer that looks and tastes great. It can go with about any holiday or family gathering. I made this Christmas Wreath for the family and it was a win!

The recipe has all the traditional ingredients, and with some food coloring, it transforms the normal deviled eggs into a holiday treat.

Ingredients

  • Hard boiled eggs (homemade or store bought)
  • Red and Green food coloring
  • 2 cups of Water, divided
  • 2 bowls
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise (fat free for a more healthier meal)
  • 1 teaspoon of yellow or Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper
  • Paprika
  • Bow: Small red or yellow pepper and a cherry tomato (optional)

Recipe and plating

  • Cut the eggs in half (lengthwise) and scoop out the yolks into a bowl
  • Stir in mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper, set aside
  • To one bowl filled with 1 cup of water, add about 5 drops of red food coloring (more or less to get your desired color)
  • In another bowl of water, add about 5 (more or less) drops of green food coloring.
  • Place half of the egg whites into one of the bowls of colored water, and the other half in the other bowl (you may have to do this in stages) and allow to sit in the water until the eggs are the shade you like
  • Pat the eggs dry
  • Fill the egg whites with the egg mayonnaise mixture
  • Place a ring of greenery and place the eggs on top (in a circle)
  • Sprinkle paprika on top of each egg
  • For the bow, cut a slice from a small red pepper
  • Remove any seeds and cut part of the bottom of the slice off
  • Cut a small cherry tomato in half (vertically) and keep the bottom
  • Place the pepper slice at the bottom of the place and top it with the bottom part of the cherry tomato
  • Cover and refrigerate until your guests arrive (up to 24 hours)
