Every year, we dye our eggs and take the time and effort to make them beautiful. How about this year we try to dye the actual egg and not the egg shell? We are all going to end up eating hardboiled eggs anyways, might as well make it fun and delicious. Cut the eggs in halves before you dye them and prepare a devilled egg mixture. This dish will look great on the table for Easter lunch.
