Savoury Egg Easter Chicks

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

These Savoury Egg Easter Chicks are so easy to make and will surely put a smile on many faces.


  • 4 large eggs, free range preferred
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon Djion mustard
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 pitted black olives
  • 1 carrot
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Hard boil the eggs and peel once they are cool.
  2. Cut a tiny slice from the bottom of the eggs, so they sit flat.
  3. Cut off the top third of the eggs and set them aside for later. Carefully remove the yolks and place them in a bowl. Be sure to keep the egg tops with their matching base; otherwise your chicks will look wonky!
  4. Make the filling in a bowl. Add mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper to the yolks and mash together with a fork until smooth. The mixture should be a little stiff, so you can build the yolk mixture up in a mound higher than the egg white base.
  5. Fill the base of the egg with the yolk mixture and loosely replace the egg white tops.
  6. Cut out round eye shapes from the olives. Thinly cut the carrot into slices, then cut into the shape of feet and small triangles for beaks and put in place.

How to hard boil eggs

Cooking a hard-boiled egg is very easy, but you can make it even easier by using an egg cooker.  These electric cookers will also do soft boiled eggs as well.

Quickest method to hard boil eggs

  • Take a saucepan, and half fill it with cold tap water.
  • Bring the water to a slow simmer and gently stir the eggs. This helps centre the yolks, which will help make your ‘chicks’ look more even.
  • Simmer the eggs for 8 minutes, then remove them with a slotted spoon.
  • Cool the eggs in ice water or run tap water over them to help prevent grey rings around the yolk.

Easiest way to hard boil eggs

  • Gently put the eggs in a medium-sized saucepan, big enough so all the eggs can lie on the bottom, with four centimetres of water above the eggs.
  • Bring the water to a boil, then turn off the heat immediately and put a lid on the saucepan. Let the eggs rest in the water for 20 minutes.  It doesn’t matter much if you leave them longer than 20 minutes too.
  • Pour cold tap water into the pot, and then drain the lot. Put some more cold water over the eggs and let them sit for two minutes. This makes the eggs easier to peel.

Tip: You can keep peeled eggs in the fridge for up to four days if they are covered with water.
