Not just chick eggs, you can also prepare bunny-shaped eggs or enrich the yolk by working it with mayonnaise and capers for superlative stuffed and disguised eggs.

Let’s start with boiled bunny eggs: how to prepare them? There are various ways to create the desired shape and we will immediately describe some of them with the characteristic of being easy and fun.

  • The first way is to take the boiled and peeled eggs, “lay them” on a plate and create eyes and mouth with small pieces of black olives and carrot. At this point with a clean scissor make two cuts to make the ears and that’s it.
  • A second approach is to use two hard-boiled eggs for each rabbit instead. Cut the first egg in two lengthwise, with one side create the head and with the other the body. Then cut the second egg into 4 pieces : the first two will be used for the ears while the others for the legs (if you can also thinly cut a dome of the egg white to make the tail and for the nose let yourself be helped by your faithful black olives and some piece of carrot.

Now let’s move on to chicken-shaped stuffed hard-boiled eggs, a slightly tastier appetizer than the main recipe. Once you have cut the upper part of the egg white you have to extract the yolk from all the eggs , which must then be mashed with a fork. Add a little mayonnaise and a few capers to the yolk and fill each hard egg white with this mixture. Work the remaining yolk with mayonnaise to create the face of the chick. Make the eyes with the capers, the beak and legs with a small piece of carrot and cover the head with the egg white dome set aside.

Finally, for a spicy variant , mix a tablespoon of egg yolk, one of mayonnaise and a pinch of paprika to taste. Fill the egg using this filling and sprinkle some paprika on top as a garnish .

They will be perfect for your Easter appetizers in any case!
