SEC Wild Card

Good. Golly.

Gainesville. Home to the Florida Gators. The Swamp. Mascots, Albert & Alberta. And yes, of course, home to the ‘old ball coach’ himself, Heisman Trophy winner & sun visor topped icon, Steve Spurrier. The Gators have a football program rich in tradition– fans brimming with team spirit spiked in a dose of tauntilzing good humor. If you’ve ever been in the stands along side them, you know what it’s like. We’re the Gator Bait. Arms fully outstretched. Right over left. With a clear sweep top to bottom mimicking an alligator jaw… Chomp-Chomp. It’s a very bold move. On the other side of the football fanatic coin, there’s Mr. Two Bits who graced the stands for decades leading folks from each section in the old-school cheer with the same name in an orange & blue striped tie. Devil With A Blue Dress pays homage to a fan base filled with excitement for their team. A traditional bacon & blue cheese deviled egg recipe puts on a little face paint for a day of tailgating outside of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. A splashy dose of orange food coloring paste adds team pride to the devilish filling while the egg whites take a dip in the bright blue hue. Try the recipe using your team colors or omit the step altogether for this southern tailgating favorite gone wild.

makes 8 servings

Run The Option

Preparing the deviled eggs in this manner is a two step process so the intense colors do not blend. 

8 large eggs
2 Tbsp plus 1 tsp white vinegar
1/2 tsp royal blue food coloring paste
5 Tbsp mayonnaise
1/2 tsp orange food coloring paste
3 bacon slices, cooked & crumbled
2 Tbsp blue cheese crumbles
1 scallion, minced
A pinch ground red pepper
A pinch kosher salt

Place the eggs in a single layer in a 3-quart saucepan & cover with about 1-inch of water. Add 1 teaspoon of vinegar. Bring them to a rolling boil over High heat. Cover them with the lid, turn off the heat & let them stand 10 minutes. Remove the lid & drain in a colander. Let stand 5 minutes. Crack each egg on the countertop & peel under cool running water. Rinse off any tiny bits of cracked shells. Plunge them into an ice water bath to stop the cooking process.

Cut the eggs in half & remove the yolk; mash in a medium bowl. Set aside. Stir together the mayonnaise & the orange food coloring paste in a small bowl. Add to the egg yolks & whip with a fork until light & fluffy. Cover & chill overnight.

Carefully rinse each egg white under running water to remove any residue. Stir together 2 cups water, 2 Tbsp vinegar & the blue food paste until the color dissolves completely to avoid any splotchy marks. Place the egg whites in a bowl just large enough to submerge completely & pour the water over them. Let stand 10 minutes & tossle with a spoon occasionally. Drain the egg halves in a colander & rinse under water. Place on a paper towel-lined pan. Cover & chill overnight.

Fold the bacon, the blue cheese, the scallions, the ground red pepper & the kosher salt into the yolk mixture & place into a pastry bag. Pipe into the dyed egg shells. Cover & chill until ready to serve.

The Extra Point

Make casual Friday lunchtime a real game day conversation starter by preparing a recipe of egg salad using this same concept. Spread over sturdy whole wheat bread slices for a sandwich brimming with team spirit.

Dying team color eggs is just like preparing a batch for an Easter hunt.
The only difference is the intensity of the hue.

School colors lead the charge in a process that can be applied to any affiliation.
Follow my tips & advice to make a plate for your tailgating social.

Florida Gators Tailgating: How To Dye Team Color Deviled Eggs By Rebecca Gordon Buttermilk Lipstick TV cooking Personality Editor-in-Chief Southern Lifestyle Tailgating Brand Sports Entertaining Pastry Chef Author Writer Food Stylist Tide & Tigers Today Tailgate Host WBRC Fox 6 Birmingham Alabama Raycom News NetworkThe Technique

No. 1

The Soak

The vinegar helps set the color on the egg whites. It’s used to balance the pH levels in the food dye. 

Use a bowl that’s just large enough to contain the egg whites & the water solution. Submerge them completely & move them around a bit to avoid splotchy marks. The color will settle into any cracks, crevesses or remaining tidbits. They will not be perfect & this is normal.

The Rinse, The Stand & The Chill

Pour the egg whites & the water into a colander. Rinse them to remove any dye that didn’t set on the eggs. Place them over a stack of paper towels. Let them stand a bit, then place over a fresh stack before chilling as the eggs will continue to release a little water & dye. The dry environment from the refrigerator will help set the color further.

The Filling 

The filling will have a smoother consistencey if blended while the yolks are still a touch warm. Simply refrigerate the mixture & fold in the remaining ingredients when it’s time to pipe into the cooked egg whites. This will help keep the colors from blending, too.
