Ingredients

Instructions

  • Halve the eggs. Remove the yolks into a bowl. Discard 24 of the halves (use in an egg salad!)
  • Fill drink glasses (we used rocks glasses) with water and add food coloring to each. You want the color to be pretty dark, even for the lighter colors.
  • Working in batches, gently lower eggs into the glasses (we put them on a spoon and lowered them into the water). Stir very gently and let set in the glass until they reach the desired color. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate and dry completely.
  • Mash yolks with a fork and add the mayonnaise, pickle relish, and mustard. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Fill egg halves with yolk mixture. It’s easier to use an icing piper or frosting bag, or if those aren’t available, put the mixture in a plastic baggie, cut off the tip, and use that to pipe the mixture.
  • Garnish with paprika and olives or pimentos, if desired.
  • Store covered in the fridge until ready to serve.
