Add mayo, mustard and relish to the bowl of yolks and mix.

At this point taste the mixture and add salt and pepper to your liking.

You don’t want a soupy mixture so be mindful of how much relish and mayo you add. Mix yolk mixture well and place in fridge.

Once eggs whites have dried (10-15 mins) place on serving tray and fill cavities with a small amount of the egg halves with the egg yolk mixture with a pastry bag and lightly sprinkle on paprika.

Remove the yolks with a spoon and place in bowl.

Tips & Tricks For Best Results When Making Colored Deviled Eggs

  • Make sure you salt the water when you are boiling the eggs and immediately put them into an ice water bath to make it easier to peel your eggs.
  • The taste of the colored egg whites are not altered when dyeing them.
  • If the egg filling is too stiff add a little more relish juice. If you prefer a crunchy deviled egg, use sweet salad cubes in place of the sweet pickle relish.
  • If you are interested in reading how to use natural food dyes like avocado or beet juice for example to make these colored deviled eggs, you should read my guide on natural food dyes.
  • While I like to keep my deviled eggs pretty simple with just mayo, mustard and relish, you could really get pretty involved with different flavors. You can try them with bacon and fresh chives, honey mustard, truffle salt, radishes, smoked salmon, cucumber and much more.

What to Serve with Deviled Eggs?

Deviled eggs are the perfect appetizer that can be paired with a variety of different sides at Easter dinner. For example, you could serve them with a simple side of fresh fruit or vegetables.

Or you might prefer something a little heartier like ham and cheese croissants or bacon wrapped dates.

Whatever you choose, be sure to keep it light and fresh so it doesn’t overshadow the main attraction – the deviled eggs!
