Step 5: Fill the Egg Whites

Once the egg whites are colored and dried, use a spoon or a piping bag to fill each egg white half with the yolk mixture. If you want to get fancy, you can use a star-shaped piping tip for a decorative touch.

Tips for Perfect Deviled Eggs

  • Peeling the Eggs: To make peeling easier, use eggs that are at least a week old. Fresh eggs can be more difficult to peel.
  • Smooth Filling: For an extra smooth filling, press the yolk mixture through a fine-mesh sieve before adding the other ingredients.
  • Coloring: Be careful with the food coloring. A few drops go a long way, and you can always add more to deepen the color.
