Note: I’ve edited this post from the original I posted from Easter 2013. Scroll the the end to see my husband and I much more well rested before kids with only fur babies to care for! Also I have short hair. It’s a fun flashback!

You know what the best part about this post is? I actually don’t love hard boiled eggs. I don’t eat deviled eggs. In fact, I’ve never liked them, but my whole family does. Somehow over the years, I became the official egg devil-er of the Timmer household. Apparently I’m good at it. So here’s how to make your deviled eggs even prettier than before!


  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Leftover Easter egg dye or water, a few tablespoons of vinegar and food coloring
  • Mayo
  • Relish {I use dill and sweet relish}
  • Salt 
  • Pepper
  • Seasoning salt


Go on an Easter egg hunt and gather up all the beautiful eggs you dyed on Easter Eve.    

What you didn’t dye eggs or go on an Easter egg hunt because you’re an adult? Lame. You should rethink that next year. All the cool kids are doing it.

But if you seriously don’t have any eggs, then boil your eggs and create your dye.

You can do this by taking a mug, filling it 3/4 with water, add about 3 tablespoons of vinegar and a few drops of food coloring. The more food coloring, the brighter the eggs. But let’s not over do it.

Peel your eggs, cut them in half long way, remove the yolk and set in separate bowl.  

Now it’s time for the fun part! Take your egg halves and put them into your different colored dyes. Let them sit for at least a minute. The longer you let them soak the brighter they turn out.

While the egg white are being dyed, you can make the insides. First mash up all of your yolk. Add some mayo. Sorry, I don’t have amounts. Just add enough to make the yolks wet.

Then add some relish, about 1-2 tablespoons and some of the pickle juice. This will make the mixture more wet without additional mayo. Add salt and pepper to taste.

At this point, a taste tester is required for me. You couldn’t pay me to eat that stuff, but apparently most people love it! Usually they say it’s awesome. If it’s a little dry, add some mayo!  

Remove your egg whites from the dye. Rinse under cold water. Put yolk mixture in the middle! You can spoon the mixture in or you can put it into a plastic baggie, cut off the corner and squeeze it on in!   

Then you end up with some pretty awesome eggs that look like this.

Don’t forget the family photos!

While you’re at it, go ahead and drive your brother nuts by taking way too many Easter pictures. Here are some of ours, enjoy!    

Family photos are always a must for any holiday with my family!

So what do y’all think about the dyed deviled Easter eggs? A fun spin on an Easter tradition if you ask me! I hope y’all are able to give it a try this year. Even if your kids don’t love deviled eggs, they’ll love getting to dye them and see all the pretty colors!

Happy Easter season y’all! Take a look at these other Easter ideas for the whole family to enjoy before you go!
