  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 8 slices bread
  • 4 to 8 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 8 slices fully cooked ham
  • 8 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 pitted ripe olives


  • Place bread on an ungreased baking sheet. Spread each slice with mustard; top with ham. Using a 3-1/2-in. egg-shaped cutter, cut mozzarella cheese into egg shapes (discard trimmings or save for another use). Using a sharp knife, cut zigzags in the middle of each egg shape. Place on ham, leaving 1 in. of space between the two pieces.
  • For each chick, sprinkle cheddar cheese between the two egg pieces. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Cut olives into eight triangles for beaks and 16 small pieces for eyes. Arrange on chicks.
