Christmas Tree Deviled Eggs
These savory deviled eggs are an impressive appetizer to bring to any holiday party. And while these deviled eggs look hard to make, they are really quite easy!
What I love, and what you are going to love, about these Christmas tree deviled eggs is their flavor and the fact that my standard for wholesome ingredients has not been compromised.
I used 100% natural food coloring to achieve my bright green Christmas tree--my family appreciated that I didn't play around with adding spinach or pesto to my deviled egg filling, as I originally intended--but pesto deviled eggs do sound quite tasty to me! But this food coloring is a great way to have some fun without adding chemicals to your food.
How to Make Christmas Deviled Eggs
Step One: Hard Boil Eggs
- Hands down, I prefer using my Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs, as it is the BEST way to hard boil eggs.
- If you don't have a pressure cooker, hard boil your eggs on the stove-top.
- Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with water.
- Add a teaspoon of baking soda (my mom taught me this helps with peeling the shells and I seem to think it does).
- Bring to a rapid boil and then cover the pan with a lid.
- Turn OFF the heat, and set the timer for 12 minutes.
- After the 12 minutes has passed, place eggs in cold water to stop the cooking process.
Step Two: Remove Yolks from Eggs
- Slice open eggs and scoop out the yolk into a large bowl.
- I find a melon baller a very helpful tool for this process.
Step Three: Make Deviled Egg Filling
- Mix together egg yolks with mayonnaise, yogurt, mustard, and seasonings until smooth.
- Take out 2 tablespoons of deviled egg filling and set aside.
- Add 3-4 drops of natural green food coloring to the remaining egg filling.
Step Four: Pipe the Tree Unto the Egg White
- Place the green filling into a sandwich bag and cut a corner off the side --or use a piping bag fitted with a medium circle.
- Fill the egg white cavity with the green filling. Once the cavity is filled, go back and forth over the egg to create a triangle shape that will become the Christmas tree.
Step Five: Add the Star to the Tree
- Place the reserved yellow mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star tip, or plastic bag fitted with a star tip, and add squeeze on the top of each tree, to create the star.
Step Six: Decorate the Christmas Tree
- To make ornaments, dollop out little dots of sriracha sauce.
- And for the base of the tree, use a half a kalamata olive as the trunk.
And there you have your Christmas Tree Deviled egg--a fun addition to any party.
