The Best Easter Deviled Eggs

These super cute Easter deviled eggs are so adorable and would be a great breakfast for your busy Easter morning before church or for that springtime potluck with all of your friends and family.  It would be a great dish to bring to work for your Easter get-together. If you have chickens at home use your older chicken or duck eggs to make the peeling of your eggs a little easier.  The fresher that they are the more difficult it can be to peel the eggs and not tear them apart when going to make your Easter deviled eggs.  This would be a really great way to use up all of those many dyed Easter eggs that you and the children worked on this year.  Don’t have any dyed eggs? Just boil up a batch of eggs just to use for this recipe and your children or grandchildren will think you are amazing!  These can be sent to school in a cooler type of lunchpail for a boost of protein for children or in your own lunch for work to give you some much-needed protein to finish your day strong.

What You Will Need To Make Boiled Egg Chicks

  • A pot 
  • A small bowl
  • A dish for serving
  • A fork
  • A cutting board
  • A sharp knife
  • A spoon
  • A cute apron
  • A mesh strainer or slotted spoon
  • Cold Water and Ice

Easter Deviled Eggs

Ingredients:

5 Free Range Eggs 
Ripe Olives
Carrot Cut Into Triangles
Himalayan Pink Salt
Dry Mustard Powder
Mayonaise
Pepper
 

Directions for Easter deviled eggs:

Bring a pot of water to a full boil on your stove. If desired you can pierce the eggs with a tack at the top of the biggest end of your eggs before putting them in the water. Some say this aids in easier peeling of the eggs once they are finished cooking. Pull the pot off of the burner and using a large spoon or metal mesh strainer (like for wontons) start adding your eggs into the boiling water. Removing the pot from the heat will help the eggs not crack. Do not overfill your pot. 

Boil on high for 30-60 seconds then, reduce the burner heat to a simmer and cover.  Let them simmer for 14 minutes. This will keep the eggs from wanting to crack while you are cooking them. 

Get out a bowl larger than your eggs and add ice and cold water and set it on the counter just before the eggs are done. When your timer goes off remove your pan from the heat and carefully drain the eggs. 

Using your large mixing spoon put the hot eggs into your ice water bath to cool the eggs. The quick transition from hot boiling water to ice cold will help the eggs to be easier to peel.  You can also just add the ice bath to the pan you used, but I have found that it melts my ice too quickly when I do this so I prefer the bowl method.  Let your eggs sit in the ice bath for 15 minutes to fully cool. 

After your eggs are fully cooled off peel them and slice off a little slice of the bottom so your chick can stand. It does not have to be much, just a teeny slice. Try to make sure it is straight.

Taking a sharp knife (so as not to tear up the egg white) cut the upper portion of the boiled egg off to make the cap on the little chick.  Set this aside.

Get out a little bowl to put your egg yolks in. 

Scoop out all of the yolks and put them into the bowl.  

Smash the yolks with a fork and add about 2 Tbsp of mayonnaise and a dash of dry mustard, some ground pepper, and Himalayan pink salt.

Take the yolk and spoon it into a quart zipper bag.  Taking a pair of scissors, trim off a bit of the corner of the bag and pipe into the whites.  Smooth out any lumps and bumps with a finger if necessary.  

Take a ripe olive and dice it up.  Place two diced pieces as the eyes of your chick.

Take a mini carrot and slice it into rounds and then use one triangle for your chick’s beak. Repeat for each egg and serve.  To get really fancy you can put these on a bed of lettuce leaves, kale leaves, fresh parsley sprigs, etc.  We like to use a long rectangular oil and vinegar dipping dish to hold them.  It is just wide enough to let them sit in it and it makes a really good display we think.
