Patriotic Deviled Eggs

Planning a Memorial Day Party?? Have the menu planned yet?? Here is a great idea..... Red, White and Blue deviled eggs. 

1 dozen hard boiled eggs + 2 eggs (to be chopped and added to yolk mixture)
¼ cup non fat plain yogurt (or desired amount)
1 tablespoon mayonnaise (I prefer Miracle Whip)
½ teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon finely minced onion (optional)
salt & pepper
Red and Blue Food Coloring
1 teaspoon white vinegar per color

Slice 12 eggs in half lengthwise
Remove yolks to a medium sized bowl with the 2 whole hard boiled eggs.
Use a fork to break up yolk until it's super fine. (you can also use a pastry blender)
Add yogurt, mayo, mustard, salt and pepper to taste
Mix until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Place mixture into piping bag fitted with a 2D tip or put in a small baggie and cut off the corner
To dye the egg white ....Mix 1 cup hot water and 1 teaspoon Americolor food coloring and 1 teaspoon vinegar.
Place egg whites into the colored water and let sit until desired color is achieved (I left mine in for about 2 minutes)
After desired color is reached, remove egg whites and place on paper towel to drain
Pipe the egg yolk mixture into the egg white halves

The white vinegar helps the color stay bright much like when you are dyeing Easter eggs.
