The Lilek Penguin

Recipe by COOKGIRl
READY IN: 32mins




  • Hard boil the eggs. Drain, set aside to cool then peel.
  • BODY: Cut a small slice off the wide end of each egg. (Cut the slice so that the penguin can stand up on its own.).
  • FLIPPERS: Slice three olives in quarters lengthwise. Cut a small slit down each side of the "body" of an egg and insert one olive piece on each side.
  • CHEST: Cut approximately 1/2" sliver of black olive lengthwise. Make a tiny slit down the middle of the hard boiled egg and carefully insert the olive sliver.
  • HEAD: Place one toothpick down the center of the top (narrow end) of each hard boiled egg. Attach the whole olive with the hole in the center of the penguin's face.
  • NOSE: cut six small triangular pieces of carrot or bell pepper-large enough so that it will fit snugly in the olive hole and not fall out. Place the carrot or bell pepper piece in the olive hole.
  • To serve, arrange the endangered penguins on an irregularly shaped piece of styrofoam.
