We love using our Instant Pot to hard-boil the eggs, but you can easily bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil, and then gently lower the eggs in and cook them for 14 minutes, removing with a slotted spoon and cooling them in an ice bath.

Oh, eggs. 

How we love you so much.

Using pickled beet juice is a stunning way to add color to the eggs.  Using what nature provides us to make a dish even more beautiful is so much fun!

Look how vibrant these eggs are!

Gorgeous!

Of course, we had to start off with the traditional deviled egg.  Adding a few splashes of hot sauce is what gives these little devils there extra punch of flavor.

You can even add a little cayenne if you want a little more heat.

A light dusting of paprika on top is very traditional.  And very yummy.

We just love the combination of ham and cheddar cheese.  So, why not add them to an amazing stuffed egg!

Throw in some dill relish, brown mustard and a splash of vinegar, and you’ve got a flavor explosion on your hands.

We dare you to eat just one.  Or two. Or…well, good luck.

Okay, drum roll, please.  These Horseradish Beet Stuffed Eggs are bold and they are beautiful.

Of course, if you’re not a fan of horseradish, you can fill the beet-dyed eggs with the traditional filling or the ham & cheese filling.

But, we gotta tell you, the horseradish egg filling is something else.  We absolutely love it!
