Deviled Chicks

2 Posted by - April 7, 2012 - Easter, Food & Drink

I fall victim to the “oh my God that is so cute” sickness on Pinterest regularly. I’m pretty sure Easter is the best holiday for that. Bunnies and chicks are already so cute I want to die.

How, I ask you, could any human being with a real, beating heart resist this? Not I. Especially since deviled eggs are one of the things that I am usually capable of not fucking up. Usually is the key word there, apparently. Sigh. Can you see where this is going?

You guys, it doesn’t seem like it would make that much difference to cut open a boiled egg the long way rather than the short way. It does. That freaking yolk is never where you expect it to be. 9 eggs later, I had 6 mostly passable ones.

This pissed me off mightily. If there’s one thing I hate, it’s having to throw away perfectly good food. (I know. Blame it on years of hearing about starving children in China. I can’t help it. It explains a lot about me, actually.)

But I forged on, slopping deviled egg mixture into the sort of limp and broken whites. It’s damn hard to get yolks out when you slice them this way without the whole egg exploding in a fart-smelling hard-boiled egg bomb in your hand. Just trust me. (I don’t have a picture of that because I was too busy using the resurrected savior’s name in vain to get my camera.)

The result is less than perfect. But maybe I can serve the demented devil-chick eggs to the kids tomorrow and it won’t give them nightmares for more than a few weeks.

    I love that it looks like the perfect looking chicks went through some sort of torture device where they were sprayed with a high powered hose. I’m glad I won’t be attempting this one! It sounds like it was pretty painful.

    Blame it on those darned food designers! Yours sort of look like chicks that are going to war with little helmets on. =-/ Little boys would love them!

      OMG i just died laughing at the “war helmet” comment 🙂

    Oh, yours are gorgeous. They made me laugh. I like them better than the more perfect ones above. So, yay! you. the kids will love them.

    *snort* I’m so glad I’m not the only one with culinary ineptitude!

    I JUST saw something similar, but with sliced olives (the green type with a red center) as eyes. I can’t find it to link. Probably best. Now I know I will NOT be attempting this!

  • inkgrrl April 8, 2012 - 9:38 am Reply

    The original example look like snowmen-cum-easter chicks. Yours look like roller derby chicks. Therefore, yours are clearly superior. I mean c’mon, cutesy-pootsy for Zombie Jesus Day? I think not!

  • Candace April 8, 2012 - 3:24 pm Reply

    Yours look like muppet deviled chicks. i kinda love them.

    […] And, for Easter, our resurrected savior’s name was taken in vain during the creation of deviled chicks. […]

    Just wanted to say your chicks looked better than mine I gave up after only making 6. I then made the rest the normal way cut in half length wise… The outcome was no one wanted to eat them they were too cute. Well I can’t say no one I did the next day lol

  • Amy Young June 23, 2012 - 6:29 pm Reply

    I also tried this at Easter, had all of the same problems you did. I finally gave up and made regular old deviled eggs, just a few of them were cut differently. 😉

  • Chiao Kee Lim June 23, 2012 - 7:41 pm Reply

    Where does the yolk need to be? A good tip is to spin the egg gently sideways on a hard surface before you put it into hot boiling water to keep the yolk in the centre when it’s cook.

    • JamesWBowers July 11, 2012 - 5:28 am Reply

      Except that this only works if you’re already boiling the water which makes it substantially easier to overcook the yolks (which results in deviled eggs that taste like they’ve literally been to hell with all the sulfur flavor).  Scroll up for my tip on keeping yolks centered.  For hard boiling eggs, the best method is to put the eggs in a saucepan, cover with an inch of COLD water, then bring it to a boil on the stove, and once it’s boiling turn off the heat and slap a lid on it.  In 12 minutes the eggs will be perfect, and it’s nearly impossible to overcook the yolks this way.

    Those look like biker chicks lol

    My son made these (he’s 7) and they look EXACTLY like yours. LOL.

  • Mama Gringa June 24, 2012 - 9:33 pm Reply

    I seriously laughed out loud at your attempt to devil chickens. That’s a good thing – I am way too sick to enjoy humour today but now I can’t stop giggling. Will have to troll the rest of this site. I think I may be in love.

  • amanda June 24, 2012 - 10:27 pm Reply

    I made them this past easter. I used black writing icing for the eyes and I pipped the filling inside of mine.

  • Shelley June 24, 2012 - 11:06 pm Reply

    I have NEVER laughed so hard at a blog posting…that picture of your demented eggs sent me into a total fit…thank you so much your ‘attempt’ 🙂

  • Lindsey June 25, 2012 - 12:33 am Reply

    I love eating eggs so much! But something just throws me off about making eggs look like what they would have hatched out to be? I dunno, I’m just weird o.O

  • Deborah June 25, 2012 - 11:07 pm Reply

    I MUCH prefer the demented devil chicks… I want to eat them to get that evil inside of me. I’m too nice of a person…

  • Tina MacKinnon June 26, 2012 - 4:07 am Reply

    Those are drunken gangster chicks. I’d eat them. (and get your mind out of the gutter)

  • Karyn June 26, 2012 - 9:05 am Reply

    That is hilarious, they look like secret agent deviled eggs. The black holes for eyes are terrifying! Awesome attempt and thanks for posting!

  • Christina June 26, 2012 - 3:05 pm Reply

    Oh, these little deviled soldiers might be the funniest things I’ve ever seen. Ever. I laughed so hard I cried, and then I couldn’t stop crying but I was really laughing. My emotion wires got crossed. Anyways, helmuts? Hilarious!!!!!!

  • Lisa June 27, 2012 - 10:08 am Reply

    I have made these before and the yokes will stay in the center if you stir the eggs as they are being boiled.  Hope you don’t give up and try it again.  They look great!!!

    • KaitStr June 29, 2012 - 9:05 pm Reply

      They Look great????? Liar!

    • JamesWBowers July 11, 2012 - 5:24 am Reply

      There’s an easier way to get your yolks to center in hard-boiled eggs, but it requires preparation.  Take your carton of eggs, put a rubber band around it to hold it closed, then put it on it’s side in your fridge for a day or two before boiling.

     @JamesWBowers Waaaaaaay to complex to both with just to center a yolk. Seriously, you’re lucky I can boil water much less cook eggs in it.

    I recently came across your blog. Ive smiled. Ive nodded my head in agreement as I too have attempted countless pins… but this one….ThIS ONE officially had me gasping for breath, tears rolling, kids looking at me weird. That is, until the kids looked at the picture and couldnt stop laughing either. I will file this under “need not re-attempt” and take your word for it!

    No need to waste food, the eggs that you didn’t find the yolks, you can make into egg salad….

    I also tried these adorable chicks last Easter.  I got the same kind of results.  Maybe you have to use Giant eggs or something.  This was a very disappointing one for me too.

    And I mean this seriously when I ask but… didn’t the picture make it clear that you were supposed to cut the egg about halfway up and not just at the very top?

Reading your blog I’ve seen at least 98% proyects that are SO ease and you fail in them….I guess it’s not Pinterest fault, it’s just your lack of “crafty”, and also you make the things the way you want and DON’T follow the instructions!!!!!
