Whole30: Beet Deviled Eggs

I love Deviled Eggs. To me they go hand in hand with Weekend, Summer Festivities. I will gravitate toward a tray at any Bar-b-que, then try and walk away before I devour the whole thing. Deviled Eggs are pretty simple to adapt for Whole30, just make sure you are using Whole30 mayo and mustard and don’t add any additional sugars.

Now, if you are on Whole30 you might find it difficult to attend parties and bar-b-ques because most of the people bringing a dish to pass are not going to be sharing your dietary restrictions and lets face it, most of the food at these parties are far from Whole30. I of course always bring a Whole30 dish to share so that I can be sure I have something I can eat, and I have a whole collection now of delicious side dishes for these occasions (that I will be posting soon). But some dishes are met with skepticism by Non-Whole30ers when I sub cauliflower for macaroni or say my Coleslaw is sugar free. These Beet Deviled Eggs however are sure to be the hit of the party AND be 100% Whole30.

Ingredients:

  • 6 hard boiled, cage free, eggs
  • 8 oz. Organic Beet Juice
  • ΒΌ cup Whole30 mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Organic spicy brown mustard
  • 1 tsp white distilled vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 3 slices of sugar free uncured bacon,
    cooked crisp and chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and sliced
  • scallions, chopped (for garnish)

Instructions:

1. After the eggs have been hard boiled and peeled,
place them in a container with beet juice. Make sure eggs
are 100% submerged. Place in fridge and let soak overnight.
2. Drain beet juice and rinse eggs under water.
3. Slice hard boiled eggs in half, lengthwise.
4. Remove the yokes and place them in a bowl for mixing
5. Mash the egg yolks with a fork
6. Add the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, salt & pepper and
stir until well combined
7. Put the egg mixture in a plastic sealable bag. Cut one of
the corners off the bag and pipe the mixture into each of the
egg halves.
8. Top each with a few pieces of bacon, chopped scallions
and 1 slice of jalapeno

I would consider this a half recipe given that 6 eggs goes very fast at a party. It is easy to double the recipe, however. The only thing that you perhaps don’t have to double is the Beet Juice. Beet juice is very powerful and effective at dyeing the eggs and you really only need enough to cover the eggs entirely, this will depend more on the size and shape of your container then the number of eggs you are using. When I made my batch I fit 10 eggs into a large mason jar and filled it with beet juice, because the eggs pushed up against the sides of the jar I had to make sure I gave them a gentle shake once or twice to ensure an even coating of the dye.
