Deviled Easter Chick Eggs

It’s spring, and Easter is almost here. Today I’m trying another cute food presentation that I pinned years ago, Deviled Easter Chick Eggs.  Use your favorite deviled egg recipe or mine below and decorate the little eggs to look like chicks. It’s not hard to do, and it looks adorable for holiday get-togethers.

Start with week old eggs as fresh eggs are hard to shell. To prevent cracking, remove eggs from refrigeration about 30 minutes prior to boiling. Place eggs in cold water, bring to boil, turn off burner, and cover.  Let sit for 15 minutes. Let cool, and refrigerate at least two hours before cutting for best results. Serve using an egg holder, a saucer, bowl, or a platter  To use on a flat platter, with a sharp knife, slice off a very thin layer from the base of the egg to make it flat. You have the option to make feet but it’s not necessary.  Then cut 1/3  of the egg off the top. I cut straight across but later you can make ragged edges if desired.

  1. These look fantastic, I have never ever eaten a devilled egg but often see recipes for them on Pinterest. They look really easy to make and I bet they taste delicious. #MMBC

  2. So cute! Thanks for the tips on boiling the eggs, too. Now that we live in the country we get fresh eggs from our son’s chickens and we have noticed how hard it is to peel them when we hard boil them!

    1. It is easier with older eggs – a true fact – but I love your fresh eggs from your son’s chickens!

  3. They are so cute. I think they would definitely be a hit. Thank you for sharing on the Classy Flamingos Blog Party!

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
