Pickled Deviled Eggs and “Egg Mice”

When dear fellow bloggers Jai and Bee announced the new event “CLICK”, I was very much excited. But the theme, i.e., EGGS made me think!! How can one get a creative idea out of eggs? An egg is an egg, white and oval, in what ever angle you try to take a picture of it 🙂
When I asked a dear friend of mine for an idea, the answer was, “I can’t think of anything except boiling it and cutting into half and swallowing :)”

Hmmm… tough, it was for me, becoz I am not good with camera, and I was whiling away the time drooling over the lovely entries sent by my fellow bloggers here.

When I put on the thinking cap, many ideas flashed… and I decided to go with this – Pickled Deviled Eggs!!!

How I did it:

  1. Boil the Beets and Cabbage in separate vessels, with all the ingredients.
  2. Simmer for 30 mins.
  3. Sieve them into 2 dry jars, and let them cool.
  4. Now add 2 eggs in each jar, cover and leave it in the fridge overnight.
  5. You get pink eggs (from beets) and blue eggs (from cabbage).
  6. For the Deviled eggs:
  7. Cut the eggs into half and scoop out the yolks.
  8. Mash the yolks with a fork or spoon, add Mayonnaise, Mustard, Pepper and salt and whisk till smooth.
  9. Fill the eggs with this and serve.

To Make Egg Mice:

  1. Take a peeled hard boiled egg and cut off a thin slice from one side.
  2. Cut out 2 “V” shapes for “Ears” from that slice.
  3. Make a cut on the top to insert the ears.
  4. Draw the eyes with tomato ketchup and the whiskers with mustard and pierce a clove at the back for the tail.

And the Verdict:

The platter looked so attractive and colorful. It is even ideal as a center piece on a dining table during dinners or parties.
Kids will with no doubt enjoy these!!
