Cook hard boiled eggs then peel. (see instructions in notes below)
Prepare two bowls with warm water, adding red food coloring to one and blue food coloring to the other.
Let eggs sit for at least 30 minutes, turning so all sides absorb color.
Cut eggs in half lengthwise and remove yolks to small bowl.
Mash yolks with fork then add mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper. Use enough mayonnaise so that the mixture is smooth and creamy. The amount of mustard you use will give it a tang so that can also be adjusted to your preferred tastes. Set aside.
Fill the egg halves with yolk mixture and garnish with a sprinkle or two of paprika.
How to cook hard boiled eggs:
Gently place raw eggs in a large saucepan and cover with water. The water should be about 1" above the eggs.
Cover and bring to a boil.
As soon as the water begins to boil, remove from the heat and let the eggs cook in the hot water.
Medium eggs take 12 minutes, large eggs take 15 minutes and extra large 18 minutes.
