Directions

  1. Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, remove from heat, and let eggs stand in hot water for 15 minutes. Drain hot water and fill saucepan with cold water; allow eggs to sit until cooled, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain water. Gently tap or roll eggs on the counter so the shell is cracked but still intact.
  2. Return eggs to saucepan and pour in enough water to cover eggs; add soy sauce, molasses, salt, and tea bags. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until eggs have absorbed color, about 30 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and leave eggs in water to cool to room temperature.
  3. Peel eggs and trim bottom of each egg so it will stand upright. Cut each egg lengthwise and scoop yolks into a bowl. Mix mayonnaise, red bell pepper, salt, and pepper into egg yolks until evenly combined.
  4. Spoon yolk mixture back into egg whites; smooth filling to be level with egg white. Put each egg back together.
  5. Pour salsa onto a plate and assemble eggs upright into the salsa.

I have a different twist on this one. After boiling and cooling the eggs, roll them on the counter to crack the shell all over but do not peel, return the eggs to the cold water with just the tea and soy sauce in the water. Let them soak over night, then peal the eggs. You will be delighted with wonderful individual patterns on each egg.

These were great! I followed the recipe for the marbling of the eggs, but made my families traditional deviled eggs! They were a hit! Love that there is no food coloring involved.

I did a trial run this morning with only 2 eggs, cause that is all I had....... and great recipe and technique. I can not stop chuckling over the remark of disgusting looking........ lol.... that is the point for Halloween. I will make these again soon...... after all it won't be long till Halloween and I am all for these cute recipes. I also do Martha Stewarts "Bat Wings" and they are black and creepy and wonderful tasting and I don't care for chicken that much.
