Easter Fools

By Steph Hung

On April 1st treat your loved ones to a simple homemade breakfast.  There is nothing like a soft-boiled egg with a few pieces of bread to dip in the yolk.

Only this time there’s something a little special about the eggs:

Looks like the Easter Bunny decided to make an early delivery.

Materials you will need:  Eggs, powdered gelatin, egg cups (look for opaque cups or else the gig may be up), spoon, bowls, and a measuring cup.

Step 1:  Use the spoon to crack the bottom of the egg.

Step 2:  Carefully remove a small part of the shell, and empty contents into a bowl*.  Place the shell immediately into a bowl of hot soapy water.   After all the eggs are empty, thoroughly rinse the shells.

Step 3:  Prepare the gelatin – Mix each 85g box with just 1/2 cup of boiling water so the jelly will hold up when the eggshells are peeled.  Each box will fill 3-4 extra large eggs.

Step 4:  Allow jelly to set in the fridge for a few hours.  Take eggs out 20 minutes before serving so the temperature doesn’t give them away.

(*Make a quiche with the leftover eggs and you’ll REALLY impress your guests)

Happy April Fools Day!

    This is awesome, especially for little kids who don’t eat eggs, but who probably eat jello. Great idea:)

    Very clever! As a child I would have loved to have come across a Jello egg instead of a real one. It would have made my Easter utterly complete as I didn’t really have very much use for hard-boiled anything at the time.

    Quick question- is it just the 1/2 cup boiling water or do I add cold water as well?

    how about, for adults only, you add some alcohol and make tequila jelly eggs…not sure if they would make the best breakfast though !
