Easter Deviled Eggs Chicks Recipe
These little beauties are sure eye-catching. They make the perfect dish during Easter and anytime you want to put a smile on someone's face.
In the recipe, I used standard brown eggs. However, you could use white eggs too if that's what you prefer. The only downside is that your children may have a hard time removing the shells when it's time to actually eat these deviled egg chicks. This takes the fun out of enjoying the dish and you may end up with children swallowing bits and pieces of egg shells!

- STep-by-step InSTRuctions
- 3 eggs
- 6 small raisins
- 3 tablespoons mustard
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
- 1 carrot
- Yellow easter grass
- Small colored, candied eggs
Prep time: 30 mins
Cook time: 10 mins
Total time: 40 mins
- Slice the carrot into 21 1/2-inch pieces. These will form the feet and noses.
- Put eggs into a medium-sized saucepan and cover with water. Make sure the water is at least 1 inch above the eggs. Add in a pinch of salt.
- Bring water to a rolling boil over medium heat. Next, cover the saucepan and remove from heat. Let the eggs cool for 10 minutes before running them under tap water.
- Peel off the egg shells and slice crosswise to remove the top 1/4 part of the eggs.
- Take the remaining 3/4 part of the eggs and slice the bottom rounded ends crosswise. This allows the eggs to stand in an upright position on a plate.
- Remove egg yolks into a small bowl. Add in mustard, mayonnaise, salt and pepper (to taste). Mix well.
- Stand the bigger 3/4 part of the eggs in an upright position on your serving plate. Fill them with the egg yolk mixture. Add in additional mayonnaise on top if needed to ensure an overflowing effect.
- Once that's done, cap the mixture with the smaller 1/4 part of the egg.
- Use two raisins for each egg to form eyes.
- Use the carrot pieces to form the feet.
- Use 1 piece of carrot to form the nose.
- Spread some Easter grass around the plate.
- Place small, colored, candied eggs around the egg chicks. If you find it hard to keep your eggs standing, you can use some candied eggs to prop them up.
