Molded Hard-Boiled Eggs

From my Lunchbox Wars linky, Erin from Making Memories with Your Kids shared a recipe for Hard Boiled Eggs Served with a Smile. I thought: what a great idea! And I, promptly, ordered some from amazon; I got the star, heart, bunny, bear, fish, and car.


So, for the first day of school, last week, I decided these would make a nice surprise. I gave them each one at breakfast to which Dylan asked, "WHY does my egg have a smile?" Then I figured the bear looked close enough to a wombat...so I included that in his lunch with a note that read: enjoy your wombat egg.

In hindsight, I should have been accurate and written: enjoy your wombat-shaped egg. Because my lil' wombat-phile was mortified that I might have possibly cooked a wombat fetus and tried to serve it to him. Oye.

When the egg came home untouched, I asked why. He told me, horrified. Riley laughed and said, "Silly goose, wombats don't lay eggs. They give birth to a live wombat baby!" Needless to say, I will be more careful with my lunchbox love notes.

How to...

Hard boil your eggs, cooking them in boiling water to ten minutes. Peel the egg while still hot. Place it in the mold, close it, and let it cool completely - overnight, if possible. Once chilled, unmold and enjoy.
