Cute Egg Chicks Recipe

These big-eyed chicks will steal the show at your Easter table or on a buffet! Our Test Kitchen staff took a little artistic license with a recipe shared by field editor Tami Escher of Dumont, Minnesota...and came up with these clever chicks.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 12 hard-boiled large eggs
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 pimiento-stuffed olives
  • 1 small sweet red pepper


  • 1. Cut a thin slice from the bottom of each egg so it sits flat. Cut a zigzag pattern a third down from the top of each egg. Carefully remove yolks and place in a small bowl; mash with a fork. Add the mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, onion, curry, mustard and pepper; stir until well blended. Spoon yolk mixture into the egg white bottoms; replace tops.
  • 2. Cut olives into slices for eyes. Cut 12 small triangles from red pepper for beaks. Gently press the eyes and beaks into egg yolk filling. Chill until serving. Yield: 1 dozen.

"These are adorable, however, this was very labor intensive. Also the eyes kept falling off. They came out very cute, but I probably wouldn't make them again. The flavor was average."

"I love this recipe. I made it a few years for members of my husband's family and my co-workers.

Everybody loved it and they were so happy if I made it again.
The chicks were so cute even it had a lot of work. Some year, I was lazy, I just cut the eggs in half instead of making the whole cute chicks.
I love it. You should try it, too."
