This works really well -Slice a large onion in 1/2 inch wedges. Pick the largest outer rings of the onion and set aside the rest of the onion in a zip-lock bag to use for a later time. Put spray/oil/butter in pan and melt. Place the onion ring down in pan so that the widest part is facing up. Crack and drop egg into ring. Let cook until ready to flip (if that is your desired way to have your egg and then flip. If you want no runny egg once flipped poke the egg yolk and let cook and then flip again and cook to get desired egg type. You can also oil a baking pan – place onion slices down into pan and crack open eggs and place withing onion edges. Bake 350 for five to 8 minutes until desired egg type is achieved.
10 hard boiled eggs
1 tsp vinegar for each color you are using
½ cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip or half of each (I use Miracle Whip)
Remove the shells from the hard boiled eggs and slice each egg in half.
Remove the yolks from the egg halves and place in a bowl. Set the yolks aside.
Get enough glasses or mugs for the number of colors you want to use. Fill the mugs or glasses ⅔ of the way full with cold water.
Add 3 drops of desired food coloring along with 1 tsp vinegar to each mug or cup.
Place egg whites in the mugs and allow to sit in the food coloring until desired color is reached. I could fit 3 egg whites in each of my mugs at a time.
Remove whites from dye and drain on a plate lined with a couple of paper towels.
Take the reserved yolks and mash them with a fork. Then mix in the ½ cup mayonnaise with the mashed yolk.
Pipe or spoon the yolk mix into the colored egg whites. Makes 20 deviled egg halves.

1. Eggs are great for the eyes. According to a study, an egg a day may prevent macular degeneration due to the carotenoid content, specifically lutein and zeaxanthin.
2. Researchers found that people who eat eggs every day lower their risk of developing cataracts, also because of the lutein and zeaxanthin in eggs.
3. One egg contains 6 grams of high-quality protein and all 9 essential amino acids.
4. According to a study by the Harvard School of Public Health, regular consumption of eggs may help prevent blood clots, stroke, and heart attacks.
5. Eggs are a good source of choline. One egg yolk has about 300 micrograms of choline. Choline is an important nutrient that helps regulate the brain, nervous system, and cardiovascular system.
6. They contain the right kind of fat. One egg contains just 5 grams of fat and only 1.5 grams of that is saturated fat.
7. New research and recent studies have shown that regular consumption of two eggs per day does not affect a person’s lipid profile and may, in fact, improve it. Research suggests that it is saturated fat that raises cholesterol rather than dietary cholesterol.
8. Eggs are one of the only foods that contain naturally occurring vitamin D.
9. Eggs may prevent breast cancer. A study says, women who consumed at least 6 eggs per week lowered their risk of breast cancer by 44%.
10. Eggs promote healthy hair and nails because of their high sulfur content and wide array of vitamins and minerals. Many people find their hair growing faster after adding eggs to their diet, especially if they were previously deficient in foods containing sulfur or B12.
I am always amazed at simple and creative ideas I run across and this is one of them. Simply make your deviled eggs a little different and make them into little chicks hatching. Such a simple a creative idea that your children can help make. Don’t think of this as an Easter idea either, I’m sure a few laughs would come to the dinner table when your family and friends see these and if your child helps, it makes them feel special and incorporated into the dinner as well.
Makes about 20 piglets:
400 g (13 1/2 oz) all purpose flour
1 package instant dry yeast
2 dcl (7 oz) plain yogurt
1 dcl (3 1/2 oz) warm milk
a pinch of salt
Puffed or flaky dough:
150 g (5 1/2 oz)flour
100 g (3 1/2 oz)magarine (unsalted)
pinch of salt
As much as you like: cheese(she used Gouda), tomato (pizza) sauce, oregano;
or something else you would like for filling
Egg white to use as «adhesive»
Egg yolk and some milk to brush @ the end
First, make first dough by mixing all ingrediens, and let it rise in a warm place. In the meantime, make puff dough with second batch of ingredients, and then mix it into the risen dough (yes, mix’em together), and work it well on a floured surface. Roll the dough and with a round cookie cutter or something else cut out circles about 3 inches in diametar or desired size. Leave some dough for ears and noses 🙂
Make filling with cheese, tomato sauce (pizza sauce), and oregano. You can be creative and use different kinds of ingredients to make a filling of your own. You can also add ham, or salami, or vegetables.
Place half of circles onto baking sheet (aligned with parchment paper), brush edges with egg white wash. Put some filling in the middle, cover with other half of circles, and press the edges to assure nothing will come out while baking.
Remainder of the dough use to make smaller circles for nose, and for ears by cutting them into quarters. Use egg whites wash as «adhesive» for ears and nose. For nose make somewhat smaller circles. For eyes and nostrils use a toothpick to make little lines and then inside, put cumin, pepper or something similar.
Now that you have little piglets, let them rise again for a little while, and then brush them with a little bit of egg yolk wash mixed with a little bit of milk. Bake for about 20-25 min. @ about 385-405 F.
