Unless you’ve gone all summer without a scrap of news, you know this is finally the week that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them comes out in theaters!
To celebrate, we decided to make dragon deviled eggs. Not only does this get us excited for Fantastic Beasts, it’s also a great recipe for your Thanksgiving feast! (see what I did there 😉 )
You’ll need the following ingredients for your dragon deviled eggs:
To start, boil your eggs with whatever method you prefer. For my eggs, I started by submerging them in cold water and bringing them to a boil. I let them boil for 5 minutes, shut the heat off, and let them sit in the hot water for 12 or so minutes before replacing the hot water with cold water. Pro tip: the less “fresh” the egg, the easier they will peel later.
While your eggs are cooling, you can make your dragon egg dye. Mix 1 tablespoon of distilled white vinegar with a food dye color of your choice in a cup. Fill the rest of your cup with enough water to be able to submerge your egg.
Next, crack your egg shells. This will give the marbled effect to your dragon deviled eggs. Submerge your eggs in the dye mixture for about 5 minutes.
Carefully remove the shell. If you tear them off too quickly, your eggs will lose the marbled effect.
Cut your eggs in half lengthwise and remove the yolk. If you have a special way of making deviled eggs, go ahead and proceed with that way. For mine, I use ¼ cup of mayonnaise and 2 teaspoons of mustard. Mix thoroughly.
To jazz up your dragon deviled eggs, you can spoon the mixture into sandwich bags and add dye to your yolk mixture. Knead the dye into the yolk and cut a slit into your sandwich bag to add your yolk back into the whites.
Dragon deviled eggs! And you didn’t even have to out fly a Hungarian Horntail to get them 🙂
