These Dragon Eggs look so hot, you would expect a dragon to hatch out of them. Thanks go to grandaughter Jamie for coming up with this idea. There are so many different ways to prepare Easter eggs and it is always fun to try something new.
Trivia: The Easter bunny reportedly was introduced to America by the German immigrants who brought over their stories of an egg-laying rabbit with them. The coloring and decoration of eggs is believed to date back to at least the 13th century.
Hard Boiled Eggs

Pour 1/2 cup of vinegar in small bowl. Gently roll the egg in the vinegar and remove. Do not dry egg but set it back into the egg carton or other holder.
Drop several drops of red food coloring on the top of the egg and and let it drip down the side. While still wet drip yellow food coloring in the spaces where the egg is still white. Let dry.
Use a little cooking oil on a paper towel to polish eggs.
