Coleslaw Easter Eggs

Every year at Easter time I get so excited to dye my eggs. This was such a fun tradition growing up that I never out grew it. Well this year, I decided I was tired of the same 'ol dyed egg shells that you just peel and toss in the trash. I was also tired of the same 'ol recipe for making deviled eggs. So here's the new spin on an old favorite.

First I hard boiled my eggs as normal. Once cooled I peeled the eggs, cut them in half to remove the cooked yolks and using food safe Easter egg dye, I dyed the egg whites themselves then arranged them on an egg platter for filling.

Coleslaw Eggs
1 dozen eggs (hard boiled, cooled, peeled, halved, yolks removed & in this case egg whites dyed)
1/4 tsp. Old Bay seasoning
Black pepper (to taste)
1/4 tsp. Dehydrated minced onion
1/4 tsp. Garlic powder
Hidden Valley Ranch Coleslaw dressing
2 Tblsp. Bacon bits

To the reserved yolks that were previously removed from the hard boiled eggs, dd in dry seasonings. Stir to break up yolks. Add in enough Coleslaw dressing to moisten but not saturate the yolk mixture. Stir to mix well. Filling should be moist and smooth. Spoon into each egg half. Sprinkle with a dash of Old Bay atop filled eggs for decoration. Keep refrigerated.
