About this recipe: If you like to dying eggs at Easter, do it the natural way - with onion skins! It's a fun project to do with the children.


Serves: 4 

  • 4 white eggs
  • skins from 2 to 3 onions
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • mayonnaise

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Place the eggs and onion skins in a saucepan with cold water to cover, and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Remove the eggs; drain. Dip a cotton bud into vinegar, and draw designs on the egg with the cotton bud. The vinegar will remove the onion-skin dye, leaving the natural colour of the egg.
  3. Arrange the eggs in the centre of the Easter table, or place one in an egg cup at each place. Serve with a bit of mayonnaise.
