Here’s a fast and fun recipe you can make using bread dough from a tube. Youngsters, and the young at heart, will really enjoy these!

Ingredients - bread dough, an egg and salt. If you have refrigerated breadsticks in a tube they would be perfect. I used a tube of dough I had on hand. If you want to be miss Betty-homemaker, you could also use made-from-scratch bread dough. I was not feeling the Betty-ness.


If you are using a piece of bread dough, roll into a log (or take out of tube) and cut into slices about 1-1/2 inches thick.


Roll slices into about a 12-inch long piece.


Fold in half, this forms the bottom of the bunny.


Lap the ends over each other once...


Then twice to form the body and ears.


Reserve a few pieces of dough to make the tail. Just pinch off a little ball and place it in the space created by the twists.


Separate the egg white from the yolk. Lightly beat egg white and then brush onto bread before putting into oven. Bake the bread according at 350 degrees until lightly browned.

Easter Egg Chick - Simple and So Cute!

I came across this recipe the other day and said “I can make that!” Not only was it super cute and simple, it fit into my very limited time schedule. Hooray.

So if I can make these, you can too. Or have your kids jump in and join in the fun!


Cut a zig zag pattern about a third of the way down. Blame the fuzzy photo on Captain Cavedweller, please.

Separate the top from the bottom.

Carefully remove the yolk. If you aren't careful, you'll end up with a mangled egg that looks like a fox has been in the henhouse. And you really don't want that. Nope. Not at all.

Mix up your filling.

Fill the bottom of the egg.

Ready for the top and the finishing touches.

Cute Little Egg Chick

Egg Chicks

12 hard-cooked eggs

1/2 cup mayonnaise (do not use salad dressing, repeat – do not use salad dressing)

1/4 cup Ranch dressing

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 stuffed olives

Peel eggs then cut a thin slice from the bottom of each one so it will stand upright. Cut a zigzag pattern about a third of the way down from the top of each egg. Carefully remove yolks. If you do not carefully remove yolks, your egg will appear mangled like mine. Please, don’t be like me.

Mash yolks in a bowl and add mayo, Ranch dressing and salt. Spoon into bottoms of egg, replace tops.

Cut olives into thin slices for eyes and use pimento pieces for beaks. Gently press into filling. Chill until ready to serve.


Happy Easter Entertaining!
