This is truly a fun Easter Egg Recipe. These deviled egg chicks are a little bit hilarious but they will be the talk of your kitchen! Traditional dressed eggs are fun, but this year come out of your shell (get it? ha ha) and turn them into chicks!!
Easter egg chicks are absolutely adorable. Adding the fresh parsley at the base gives them that “free range” feel that everyone is after. Chirp, chirp, chirp…
I love those recipes that we all grew up with, they are just too good to miss out on.
This is a tried and true recipe !! if you want to satisfy your sweet tooth, you cannot go wrong here. This is the way my Mother always made, jut give a shot it won’t fail you !
12 hard-boiled eggs, peeled
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 1/2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 dill pickle, finely chopped
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish, or to taste
1 teaspoon pickle juice
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 carrot, cut into rounds
12 slices canned black olives, or as needed
Slice through the top 1/3 of each egg, ensuring some of the yolk is included in the slice. Carefully remove the egg yolk from the bottom portion of the egg using a spoon and transfer to a bowl.
Mix egg yolks, mayonnaise, mustard, pickle, horseradish, pickle juice, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Fill a piping bag or a plastic bag with a corner snipped with the egg yolk mixture. Pipe egg yolk mixture into the hollowed egg whites creating the ‘chick’, ensuring there is enough filling to add ‘eyes’ and a ‘beak.’
Slice small wedges out of the carrot rounds creating 12 ‘beaks’. Add a ‘beak’ to each ‘chick’.
Slice olive pieces into small squares to be used as ‘eyes.’ Add 2 ‘eyes’ to each ‘chick.’ Place the egg tops onto each ‘chick’ to look like a chick peaking out of the egg.
