My father sent me a link on FB many years ago with this idea (Please forgive me for not knowing the original source). Deviled Egg Chicks have been a part of our Easter table ever since. These little guys are super easy and cute. I must admit I never knew what a caper was until I started making these guys. LOL
This recipe is to make 6 chicks. Adjust it according to serving size and taste. You can use any deviled egg recipe you like, I'm using my grandmother's recipe.
- 6 Eggs (The Larger the easier they are to make)
- 1/4 Cup Mayonnaise
- 1 tsp Mustard
- 1/8 tsp Salt
- 1/8 Cup Relish
- Matchstick Carrots
Hard Boil the eggs
Cool and peel all the eggs
Slice the eggs across the yoke. (See photo above). and cut off a small part of the bottom so the eggs can 'stand upright'
Remove all the yokes. In a bowl mix yokes, mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and relish.
Put mixture in a ziplock bag and snip off the corner.
Pipe the yoke mixture back into the large side of the egg; over fill it! The more egg mixture in the egg the bigger your chick will be.
Add capers as eyes...
I have always found it best to boil a few more eggs than you need. You inevitably end up with a few that just aren't shaped right. Out of the 6 eggs I boiled, 4 ended up perfect. The other two were yummy, just not pretty.
What do you like to put in your deviled eggs?
