Very flavourful stuffed egg recipe. I substituted fresh dill for the parsley as I wanted a more assertive herb (and dill works very well with all the other ingredients). Be prepared for a pink-stuffed egg. The beet turns the mayonnaise the wildest shade of pink and these eggs will definitely attract attention. I did add just a dash of sugar to the mayo too. BTW, the caper at the end is not just decorative, it provides a great burst of pungent saltiness.

How Yummy! Tonight we served these with a Greek themes dinner (for guests) and everyone loved it, even a guest who has never liked "devilled eggs." Not only are they very tasty--they are beautiful! The color combination of the red stuffing and the green capers is eye-catching. One caution. Make certain your hands are not "stained" by the beets when you handle the "whites" as you are stuffing them. The white stains easily; if they are NOT stained, the contast between the "white" cases and the bright pink stuffing is stunning. I made these ahead of time (in the AM) and served them at night. Very good, will make again and again, especially at Christmas as an appetizer (red/green color scheme).

Gorgeous version of stuffed eggs. Made for Zaar World Tour and my daughters' house-warming party. They disappeared quickly.

We love beets, we love eggs. We now love beets and eggs! I've often eaten beets with boiled eggs, but never thought to combine them as one. And with capers yet. What's not to like. This has so many good things going for it. Glad they all married well. Thnx for posting Sharon. Made for ZWT4.

I've always enjoyed pink eggs (usually pickled) so this was a welcome change for the family. I'd only made half the recipe but now realize I should have done the lot. I used a white wine vinegar and the results were very good. Made for ZWT4.
