A cute way to present eggs at Easter.

Remember to wash your hands thoroughly!

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggsEaster Egg
  • 40g grated cheese
  • 1 lemon
  • Spoonful of mayonnaise
  • 4 coriander seeds/peppercorns
  • 1 carrot
  • Handful of fresh parsley

You will also need:

  • An apron
  • A chopping board
  • A sharp knife (to use with an adult)
  • A small bowl
  • Saucepan
  • Cheese grater
  • A spoon

Method:

  1. Hard boil 2 eggs. (Please ask for adult help.) Place the eggs in a saucepan
    and fill with cold water until the eggs are covered by the water. Bring the water to boil then turn off the heat. Put a lid on and leave the eggs in the water for 10/15 minutes. Chill the eggs in cold water to make them easy to peel. Then peel the shell off.
  2. Cut a thin slice from the bottom of the eggs so the eggs will stand up.
  3. Also cut the top third of the egg. Gently scoop out the yellow of the egg into a bowl and put the white of the egg to one side.
  4. Zest the lemon into the bowl, add the mayonnaise and mix together.Easter egg chicks
  5. Spoon the mixture back into the white of the egg and place the top third back on.
  6. Slice the carrot and with one of the slices cut into quarters. Have the rounded edge towards you and cut two v shapes out of the carrot, this will be the chicks feet.
  7. Place one of the v shapes that have been cut out onto the yellow egg at the top, this will be the chicks beak.
  8. Also place two coriander seeds for the eyes.
  9. Repeat this process for the other egg.
  10. Arrange on a plate and use the cheese as straw and the parsley as garnish and to decorate.
