Google-Eye Eggs

You gotta eat, anyway, right? So you might as well have fun with it.

Our #2 Daughter keeps chickens, and her chickens are very happy chickens. They lay eggs like nobody’s business.

This being so, I sometimes hard-boil a half-dozen or so (eggs, not chickens) and make egg salad and other dishes calling for hard-boiled eggs. Sometimes I just like deviled eggs, but the other evening I got silly and made these.


  • googleeyeeggshard-boiled eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • blops of mayonnaise
  • paprika
  • olives

Peel the eggs and cut them in half. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, if desired. Blop a blop of mayonnaise on each half. Sprinkle with paprika (I like smoked paprika, my husband likes sweet paprika). Poke an olive into the middle of each mayonnaise blop. Serve two at a time, of course!

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write a story with a chicken in it.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
