Putting it all together
 
Preparing deviled eggs on a cutting boardStep 1) Prepare Your Eggs - Using your favorite deviled egg recipe, set your eggs in water to hard boil being sure to cover the eggs completely with water. Allow to boil for about 15 minutes. While your eggs are boiling, set out all ingredients and supplies on your work station. Once your eggs are hard boiled, run them under cool water. Tip: Slightly crack all of our eggs and place them back in the cool water for about an hour. This will allow the cold water to get under your shells making your egg peels come right off come peeling time.
 
Step 2) Prep Your Ingredients - While your eggs are cooling, peel your carrots and cut them lengthwise and begin cutting them into small triangle pieces to create your bird beaks.  Tip: Cutting your carrot triangles so they are slightly curved will lend even more to the beak look. Set aside. Next, grab your black olives. We cut our olives into small square pieces to create the bird eyes. For your Angry Bird, cut two long, thick strips of olives for his eyebrows. Set aside.
 
Step 3) Start Peeling - Once your eggs are cool, begin to peel your eggs and remove the shells being careful not to break or knick your eggs. Once peeled, run your eggs under cool water to eliminate any lingering shells. Using a sharp knife and cutting board, slice a thin layer off the bottom of your eggs so that they will stand upright. Next, cut the tops off of your eggs a little less than halfway down the egg. Set the tops aside. These will be used for the tops of your hatching chicklings. Carefully remove the yolks from the bottoms of your eggs and place in a mixing bowl. Tip: Squeeze gently to remove the yolks or use a wooden skewer which works great to loosen stubborn eggs.
 
Step 4) Filling - Using your deviled egg recipe, mash your egg yolks and combine the remaining ingredients to make the deviled filling. Salt and pepper to taste. Set a small portion of your filling aside in a small bowl. This extra filling will be used to create your Angry Bird. Using a small spoon or piping bag, start to fill your eggs with your prepared deviled filling. Fill one of your eggs only halfway to use for your Angry Bird and set aside. Tip: Dessert spoons or baby spoons work great for filling the small opening if a piping bag is not available.
 
Angry Bird Hatching Deviled EggsStep 5) Add the Features - Grab the tops of your eggs you set aside in Step 3. Using a clean pair of scissors, begin cutting small triangles from the bottom to form the broken eggshell hats of your hatching chicklings. Place the trimmed egg hats on top of your filled shells. Next, grab the olives and carrots you prepared in Step 2. Begin placing two olive eyes and one carrot beak onto each of your filled eggs until you've created a face on all your eggs.
 
Step 6) That's One Angry Bird - To create your Angry Bird, grab the small portion of deviled filling and half-filled egg you set aside in Step 4. Add red food coloring to your filling and mix until it has the vibrant red color you are looking for. Next, grab your remaining egg. Begin spooning the red deviled filling onto the top of your egg pulling up slightly on the spoon to create spiked hair. Using a wooden skewer or tooth pick, add two fairly large dollops of mayonnaise to create the whites of the eye. Add your carrot beak. Next, place two olive eyes within the eye whites close to your beak to give this little guy his angry look. To finish, place the two olive strips you cut in Step 2 at a slight angle above your eye whites.
 
Arrange your finished hatching deviled chick-eggs on a serving platter. To vamp up the presentation, a bedding of green onion or parsley will take your appetizer to the next level and give your platter a grass-like look. Lastly, step back, admire your adorable appetizer, and serve to friends and family. They are going to love them!
