Easter Deviled Eggs

Toying with the technique of the Chinese Tea Eggs, I decided to make the same pattern on my Easter eggs. At first I was just gonna dye them and leave them like that but then I decided that that was a little dull and tasteless as well.

These bright colours probably scared my housemates because they looked at me with great uncertainty before reaching for one. |And I must admit, I wouldn't eat them either on a regular basis. But hey, it's Easter and you gotta have those colours!

Same procedure as you would with the Tea Eggs : Boil the eggs as you normally would. Then lightly crack the surface and  roll it on your counter, pressing gently with your palm so you get smaller crackers all over. Then drop them into a ziplock back filled with diluted food colouring. Squeeze out as much air as you can and set it in the fridge over night. 

12 egg yolks
1/2 cup mayo
2 tsp paprika
salt and pepper to taste

Fill a piping bag with the yolk mixture and pipe into egg whites. Enjoy!
