With Easter coming up this weekend, I’ve been seeing eggs and egg projects fly through my reader at an incredible pace! Personally, I LOVE me some eggs: decorated, deviled, scrambled, baked in a pie (or a quiche, as it were). Here are some fabulous options for your Easter or any egg-requiring celebration!
First of all make sure your hard boiled eggs – whether for coloring or deviling – are intact and delicious! Alton Brown, the man I consider a guru for everything food, says the following in an interview:
“I put however many eggs I want to cook into a pot of cold water. I bring it to a boil, I cover the pan, I remove the pan from the heat, and I wait eight minutes. Peel immediately under cold running water. That will give you a slightly soft yolk. If you want a really hard yolk, go with twelve minutes.”
DON’T ASK, JUST DO IT.
The good old classic Easter egg coloring event. Create your own egg dyes using vinegar and food coloring, or grab one of the myriad packages of dye, many of which include glitter, wax for blocking colors, stickers, etc! Fun for kids, but still fun for adults, too!
These totally incredible cross-stitched eggs have been all over the blogosphere, they’re that amazing!
My personal favorite, the deviled egg! This recipe is a classic, but there are literally thousands of variations! Like extra pickles? Why not! Need to add a little extra spice? Go for it!
What’s your favorite eggy creation?
