Beet-Pickled Deviled Eggs


The person developed the recipe for Deviled Eggs must have been a genius!

Who does not love Deviled eggs? We do!

Indeed, they are easy to make, diverse and so delicious. They are just a perfect appetizer for any occasion. Moreover, they are “a must” appetizer for almost any occasion, aren’t they?

I’ve been cooking Deviled Eggs for many years, and so far I’ve tried a number of options.

However, I haven’t tried much more options yet.


One of them were pickled Deviled eggs. I had wanted to dye them for a long time; however I wasn’t sure I would love the taste of marinated Deviled eggs.


Having been scrutinizing a number of recipes, I finally found out a solution – to drastically decrease the amount of vinegar suggested in most of the recipes. Thus, these Deviled eggs have an intense color with a very subtle taste of the marinade.

Just perfect!


In fact, we loved the way they tasted. So next time I am going to try another recipes to get more piquant aftertaste.

You can start practicing too.

Why not? It’s Easter around the corner, thus you may need to utilize some eggs.
