Make the hard boiled eggs:Gently place the eggs in a single layer at the bottom of a medium pot. Fill with cold water to cover eggs by 1-2 inches. Heat the pot on high and bring the water to a rolling boil. Once it starts boiling, turn off the heat, remove the pan from the burner, cover, and let sit for 12 minutes.Using a slotted spoon, transfer the eggs to a large bowl of ice water and let cool until just slightly warm, about 4-5 minutes. (This will cool them quickly and prevent further cooking, plus make them easier to peel.)When the eggs are cool to the touch, peel by gently tapping the eggs on the countertop so they’re crackled all over, rolling eggs between your hands to loosen the shell. Holding the egg under cold running water, start peeling at the large end where the air pocket is.
Slice the eggs in half lengthwise. Carefully remove the yolks from the eggs and place them into a medium mixing bowl. Using a fork, mash the yolks until it resembles very fine crumbs. Add in the mayonnaise, mustard, pickle relish (if using), salt, pepper, and cayenne, and mix well until it’s completely smooth. Spoon mixture into a plastic ziploc bag, drawing the mixture toward one corner. Set aside.
Divide the water and vinegar into two cups. In one cup, add 10-15 drops of the blue food coloring and add 20-25 drops of the red food coloring, and stir them well. Drop 4 egg halves into each cup of dye and allow them to sit until they reach your desired color, about 1 minute. Remove them to a plate lined with paper towels. Repeat this with 4 more eggs in each color - you should have 8 red and 8 blue, and 8 white that weren't colored.
Cut off a small piece of the corner of the ziploc bag with the creamy egg yolk mixture, and evenly pipe into each egg white half and colored egg white halves.
Garnish with a sprinkle of smoked paprika, if desired. Serve and enjoy!
