Deviled Eggs Can Be Chic

Starting to think about Easter- this is one of my all-time most popular posts!

Most people feel that using a piping bag for any reason is too much work, too fussy, or too difficult.  You might look at a recipe that calls for piping something like meringue or icing and decide to simply skip it.  Making something like these chick deviled eggs looks like it took a ton of time and effort.  Not so!  This is the coolest gadget ever:  It’s called the Squeeze It Decorator. It’s a plastic squeeze container that comes with different decorating tips that screw on.  It’s so easy to use that I am piping like a mad woman.  I promise I am not being paid by Tupperware or anyone else to blog about this thing.  You fill the container with your filling, slap on the tip and squeeze.  These chicks took me less than two minutes to pipe.  If I had used a spoon and tried to fill them and make them look nice it would have taken me at least 10 or 15 minutes.  All the pieces go in the dishwasher and then store inside the gadget itself.  What will they think of next!?

  • 10 hard-boiled eggs, peeled
  • 3 T. mayonnaise
  • 1/2 t. yellow mustard, I used French’s
  • 1/2 t/ mustard powder
  • 1 pinch, garlic powder
  • 2 t. lemon juice
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • carrot and chive garnish

Cut the eggs through the equator to make round cups instead of oblong.  Carefully scoop out the yolks.  Place the yolks and all other ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.  You may need to add a few drops of water if the mixture seems too thick.  Place the yolk mixture in a piping bag or Squeeze It Decorator 🙂 fitted with a star tip.  Pipe the mixture in a spiral into each white cup.  Garnish with carrot beaks and chive eyes.  I used a toothpick to insert the eyes more easily.  Chill.

    Leave it to Tupperware! That little pump is so much more convenient than anything I own. And you sure did put it to good use. Your little chicks are perfect for an Easter meal.
