Mary learned to cook at her mother's knee and likes to share some of those old-fashioned recipes she still serves her family.

Instead of having plain deviled eggs for your dinner, make these adorable baby chicks. Everyone will think you are so clever because they are so cute!

Before I start this article, I just want to say: There are many different ways to cook hard-boiled eggs. My mother taught me, and I've always boiled eggs this way, and it works for me.

How to Boil Eggs: My Mother's Method

Don't use fresh eggs right from the store. It's better to use the ones that have been in your refrigerator for a few days.

  1. Place the eggs in cold water.
  2. Bring the water to a boil.
  3. Turn off the heat. Cover the eggs. Leave the eggs alone until they are cold.

1 hour

Serves 12 people

Ingredients

  • 12 eggs
  • About 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon mustard
  • 24 pieces of diced black olives, for eyes
  • 12 pieces of diced carrot, for beaks

Directions

  1. Hard boil the eggs. (See my mother's method above, or use your preferred method.)
  2. Cut off the top of the egg. Do not cut in half.
  3. Carefully remove the cooked yolk.
  4. Mash the yolk with the mayonnaise, salt, and mustard. Using the cake decorator, fill the bottom part of the cooked egg with this mixture.
  5. Carefully replace the top part of the boiled egg.
  6. Decorate the exposed egg yolk mixture with sliced black olives for the eyes and pieces of carrot for the beaks.
This is the cake decorator that I used to fill the eggs.

This is the cake decorator that I used to fill the eggs.

Use a Cake Decorator to Fill the Whites

I used a cake decorator to fill the bottom half of the boiled egg with the yolk mixture. Using a star-shaped tip, I pushed the mixture through into the egg white. This gives the chicks the look of having feathers.

I like pickle relish in deviled eggs, but this will plug up the cake decorator tip, so I omit the pickle relish.

These deviled eggs can be easily stored and transported in the egg carton.

Use an Empty Egg Carton to Store the Eggs

Save the empty egg carton to store and carry the deviled eggs. You can buy nice egg trays, but I don't have one. (I should hint to my family to give me one for my birthday or Christmas.) The egg carton serves as a covered carrier, and it makes it easy to store the finished eggs in the refrigerator.

Make These Eggs Anytime!

As you can see by my photos, I made this batch of deviled eggs that look like baby chicks at Eastertime. Now my family expects them at all our family dinners! So, don't make these only at Easter, but anytime for your dinners. Everyone will love your little baby chicks!

teaches12345, good morning! I have a new idea on deviled eggs. Martha Stewart soaks her boiled eggs in beet juice. That dyes the whites of the eggs a nice lavender color. Wouldn't that be pretty at Easter time??

Dianna Mendez on August 03, 2015:

Glad I stopped in to read this, Mary. I love deviled eggs. This would be such a nice way to serve a lunch side dish to my grandkids.

Mary Hyatt (author) from Florida on March 26, 2015:

Good Morning rebeccamealey This makes me so happy that you made these deviled eggs last year (hope you'll do that again). My family would be very disappointed if I didn't make these at all our family dinners.

I hope you have a wonderful Easter too, Mary
