You have to understand that there is absolutely no artist in me. In fact, since I only make these little chicks once a year, I’m doing three for Rickey’s dinner tonight as a trial run! All you do is use your favorite deviled egg recipe or use my ingredients.
Eggs, boiled, shelled, and cold
Midget Sweet Pickles
Tiny Slivers Of Carrot, I use what’s in a salad mix.
Peppercorn, 2 per egg
You have to adjust the amount of these ingredients according to your taste and the number of chicks you are making.
Cut your eggs well above the half-way mark so that you have the look of a hat. Carefully take out all of the yolks and drop into a bowl.
Add Miracle Whip in small amounts and work in with a fork. Keep adding until you like the texture and taste. Put a tiny bit aside.
Cut your midets into teeny pieces and add to the yolk mixture.
Stuff the bottoms to the overfill, using a bit of the mixture with no pickles for the “face.”
(If you have a deviled egg tray, the cups should hold your eggs. I’m actually going to experiment with styrofoam and toothpicks this year, but I’ve left the plastic on the styrofoam and cleaned it well. I have a thought in mind that I will work out before Easter.)
Put the hats on, cocking them just a bit to the back.
Decorate the faces by using the carrot sliver for the beak and peppercorn for the eyes.
Get the camer out because you are going to be proud of yourself!
