Easter Egg Hunt

What's that? A dinosaur egg? An experiment gone bad?

Those are 'Stain-glass Eggs'! Taken from the Chinese Tea Eggs preperation where you stain eggs using black tea. I've done this before where you hard boil eggs and then roll the egg around to crack the shell. Placing the egg in a container filled with black tea overnight allows the eggs to infuse with the color.

So ofcourse my sister and I had to try this for a Deviled Egg Easter Surprise when we went home to Wisconsin the past weekend with food coloring! And while they may not have turned out perfect, once you make these into Deviled Eggs they taste just as delicious....

Deviled Eggs
10 hard boiled eggs, shelled
1/2 cup mayo
2-3 tbsp stone ground mustard
1 tbsp hot sauce
salt & pepper to taste
Cut the eggs lengthwise and remove the yolks to a large bowl, placing the whites on a tray. Mix the remaining ingredients with the yolks until as creamy as you like.
Using a small spoon scoop the yolk mixture back into the whites. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
