"These are a great Fourth of July appetizer," says recipe creator Gremolata. "They're a bit fussy to make, but the colorful presentation is so fun, it's worth it. Spicy horseradish gives these deviled eggs a bit of a kick. This recipe scales easily; just be sure to go easy on the salt amount and season to your tastes."

Top Tips to Make Red, White, and Blue Deviled Eggs

  1. Gel food coloring will result in a more vivid color, while liquid food coloring will be more pastel.
  2. Be careful not to pierce the eggs too deeply with the toothpicks otherwise they'll break up when you cut them in half.
  3. After dyeing one end of the eggs, blot with a paper towel before flipping it over to dye the other end. This prevents drips of dye from ruining your white stripe in the middle.
  4. To speed up the dyeing, make multiple ramekins, bowls, or mini jars of dye so you can dye several eggs at once rather than one at a time.
