If making deviled eggs feels like too much work, you can still make an adorable chick out of boiled egg with just a baby carrot and a couple of cloves.

As with all the boiled egg animals, cut a razor thin slice off the bottom of the egg to give a flat base for it to sit on.

Slice a long thin piece off the carrot. Cut it into a rectangle about an inch long, and cut little triangles out to make the comb. Cut a slit into the top of the egg that goes slightly down the front.

Insert the comb into the top of the slit. Then put a little carrot triangle in the bottom of the slit for a beak, and two at the base for feet.

Cut a couple of ovals, with one pointy end, out of a piece of seaweed. Gently press them onto the sides of the egg for wings.

Wondering what to do with Easter eggs now that you're done with Easter? Turn them into these cute deviled egg chicks! We like a tiny bit of heat in our deviled eggs from the addition of Chinese mustard powder.
Servings: 6
Author: Diana Johnson
Ingredients
  • 6 boiled eggs
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon spicy hot Chinese mustard powder
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 1 baby carrot
Instructions
  1. Cut a very small slice off the bottom (flatter) end of each egg. This is the base of the chick.
  2. Then cut off the top (pointy) end, about a third of the way down. This pointy end piece is going to be the top of your chick.
  3. Scoop all the yolks out of each egg (Don't forget the tops!), and mix them with the mayonnaise, yellow mustard, mustard powder, and salt.
  4. Put the filling into a plastic bag with a corner end snipped off, and pipe it into your bottom eggs. Make sure the filling is at least half an inch taller than the top of the bottom egg white so you will have plenty of room to make a face.
  5. Place a top slice of egg white on each chick.
  6. Use a knife to slice your into thin pieces, then cut them into little triangles.
  7. Place 2 cloves and a piece of carrot into the yolk of each egg to make the face. You may find it easier to use tweezers for these tiny pieces.
  8. Arrange the eggs on your serving tray or plates, then add feet by slipping the remaining slices of carrot under their bodies. Again, tweezers can help with this step.
  9. Serve cold. Best served within 2 hours.
