Deviled Easter Eggs

I once hosted a birthday brunch buffet for my 90-year-old uncle. Since the event took place near Easter, I wanted to prepare colored eggs but worried about the mess all of those broken egg shells would leave. That’s when I decided to color the eggs after they’d been shelled. I boiled and shelled the eggs before coloring them with coloring mixes. Once the color was set, I cut the eggs in half and prepared deviled eggs. The eggs were colored on the outside, yet appeared normal on the inside. Served on a plate of shredded lettuce, they were the hit of the party. —Carol Walters, Spokane, Washington
