Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Slice through the top 1/3 of each egg, ensuring some of the yolk is included in the slice. Carefully remove the egg yolk from the bottom portion of the egg using a spoon and transfer to a bowl.

  • Mix egg yolks, mayonnaise, mustard, pickle, horseradish, pickle juice, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Fill a piping bag or a plastic bag with a corner snipped with the egg yolk mixture. Pipe egg yolk mixture into the hollowed egg whites creating the 'chick', ensuring there is enough filling to add 'eyes' and a 'beak.'

  • Slice small wedges out of the carrot rounds creating 12 'beaks'. Add a 'beak' to each 'chick'.

  • Slice olive pieces into small squares to be used as 'eyes.' Add 2 'eyes' to each 'chick.' Place the egg tops onto each 'chick' to look like a chick peaking out of the egg.

Cook's Note:

Feel free to use the ingredients in different amounts depending on taste or desired consistency. We often like more pickle and horseradish.

It's easier to break up the yolk a bit to get it out without tearing the egg white 'shell'.

The yellow stuff in the middle was too runny probably too much liquid. The top squished it. Also need to be very careful scooping the yolk out that you break the white bottom. Read More

was fun to make and very whimsical... a crowd pleaser... I did have to add an extra 2 dry yolks; the filling was originally too thin to hold the weight of the top egg half, and the "chick" swooshed out of the sides... but once thickened this was a great idea Read More

The idea is so cute! Put them in my egg tray and filled the bottom of it with olives and cherry tomatoes for fun easy snacks. Thanks for the great idea:) Read More

These were awesome. I omitted the horseradish only because I was taking them to my nieces and nephew. They are 9, 6 & 3. Wow...they LOVED them. They had 2 EACH - couldn't believe it. I didn't even get one lol They don't transport well. Ours got mushy and looked funny but we strategically placed them to make them look like some were drunk and fell down. Was hilarious. We made a little bottle out of cucumber! We don't like olives so used Pickles and we did not have dill so used sweet pickles and they were super yummy (from the bite I had before my family ate them all) Next time would do for people coming to my place so they don't get mushy but they rock!

I wish I had looked at the pictures before making as my chicks were very top heavy and caved in. That said, I believe it is because we like a creamier deviled egg. I prepared the filling as directed (except cut the horseradish to 1/2 tablespoon because kids are eating) and although it tasted good, it was too stiff for us. I added 2 more tablespoons of mayo and 1 more teaspoon of pickle juice to get it to the consistency we like. We did like the base recipe though and will have again. Read More
