Dyed Cracked Easter Eggs
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • 6 to 12 Hardboiled Eggs
  • 1 Paper Towel Roll
  • Gel Food Coloring
  • Small Glass Bowls (I personally prefer lids too)
  • Boiling Water
  • Aluminum foil or plastic wrap (if using bowls or cups without lids)
  • Refrigerator
  • Large spoon
Instructions
  1. Hardboil your eggs
  2. Cover your prep area with paper towel
  3. Make up separate bowls with the gel food coloring of your choice to dye your eggs
  4. Once the eggs have cooled either roll them roll the eggs around on a hard surface to crack them or gently crack them by rolling them in your hands between a paper towel (develop a cracked look all over the egg but keep the shell on the egg)
  5. Place your cracked eggs in the bowls with the dyed water then place them in the refrigerator overnight or long enough for the dye to soak in the eggs.
  6. Remove them from the dyed water and peel the shells, you will then see the cracked affect
  7. Serve whole or as deviled eggs

  1. My grandma did something like this when I was a kid. I always wondered how she did it. What a fun twist on traditional Easter eggs.
