Pickled Deviled Eggs

Written by chanie on February 14th, 2013

With Valentines Day here, it seems like all my foodie feeds are covered in hearts and pink desserts of all kinds. But what about us non-bakers? Isn’t there anything pretty and pink for us to make? Well it just so happens, there is. Beets are a great way to turn savory foods into pink or purple edible eye-candy that’s perfect for parties of any kind. Think pink pasta, purple pancakes or these gorgeous ombre deviled eggs!

So if you really want to up the ante at your next party or cozy Valentines dinner, do away with traditional (ie: boring) deviled eggs, and give these gorgeous little pickled ones a try. The pink ombre ring comes from brining the eggs in beet juice – a simple task with a huge wow factor. Ombre isn’t just for 7 layer dye-filled cakes anymore!

With Purim just around the corner, I love to plan my menu around interesting unexpected dishes to maximize on the Purim spirit. Last year, I made these salami chips. This year, these pickled deviled eggs will be making an entrance. Of course I also do a twist on traditional hamantaschen like these puff pastry ones, last year’s sushi onigiri, and this years…well, you’ll just have to wait on that one…the surprise is coming up next week!

  1. I never thought of pickling the eggs in borscht and I love the idea. It creates such a beautiful color without any effort. Nicely done!

    I think I will substitute horseradish for mustard and serve these at my Seder. They are beautiful and so much cuter than a plain hard boiled egg. (I’ll have both).

  3. I like the 12 hour approach – I do mine for three days – but you have a more delicate pinky tone and the white stays white in the center. Nicely done.

  4. Ombre is my favorite color this time of year! I love seeing it incorporated with all kinds of foods! This is beautiful!

  6. This sounds so amazing! I have been craving pickled eggs ever since I saw Yosef’s post but now with the idea of turing pickled eggs into deviled eggs? I am going to make them tomorrow for sure.

    What do you do with the borscht after the pickling is done?
