How to cook a “Snack “Pigs””

Prepare all the ingredients. Pre-boil until tender one beet of medium size. Boil hard boiled eggs and cool.

Eggs clean the shell, being careful not to damage them.

Beets clean, cut into small pieces and put in a deep bowl.

Pour the beets with boiling water and dip in the same bowl of cleaned eggs, they must be completely covered. Leave the eggs at least 20-30 minutes. The longer you keep the eggs in the water, the more color it is.

Painted eggs, remove and drain. I kept them in water for about 2 hours and here’s the result.

With a knife carefully cut away the part of the egg.

With a spoon take out the yolk, being careful not to damage the protein.

Add to the yolks fried until cooked mushrooms with onions. Mushrooms can take any, I had frozen mushrooms.

Add the mayonnaise, salt and pepper to taste. Mix, rubbing the egg yolks until smooth.

Fill eggs prepared filling.

Flip the egg filling down. Of cut previously painted squirrel with a knife cut ears in shape of a triangle, noses and tails. The eyes make from pepper. Piglet, to hold, brush one side lightly with stuffing or mayonnaise. Ears and tail insert in the longitudinal hole made by the knife.

Appetizer of “Pigs” is ready. You can serve it to the table. Bon appetit!

Tip from the chef:

If you have leftover filling, you can spread it on crackers and garnish with greens and serve as one more self-sufficient and tasty snack for the holiday table.
