When one thinks of Easter, two things usually come to mind_ bunnies and eggs. When planning my recipes for this year's Easter brunch, I knew wanted to make something fun and which had a bit of whimsy for the kids. These Bacon, Egg and Cheese Bunnies fit the bill perfectly.
Just cook up some nice crispy bacon, boil a batch of eggs, and cut out triangles of your favorite cheddar cheese slices (you can even have your kids help you with this last step). The hardest part of the recipe is making the hard boiled eggs, which isn't very difficult. But if you personally don't find boiling eggs easy, this hard boiled egg recipe will show you how (I like using Safest Choice brand eggs because they are pasteurized, eliminating the risk of Salmonella).
As with all little bunnies, the ones in this recipe look totally cute, but they're also delicious to eat. You get the creaminess of the egg, the smoky taste of the bacon, and the sharp saltiness of the cheese in every bite. Easter never tasted so good and looked so cute!

Egg and Bacon Bunnies (Makes 12 egg bunnies)
- 6 hardboiled eggs
- 1 slice cooked bacon
- 6 chives
- 4 slices cheddar cheese
1. Peel the hardboiled eggs and slice them in half lengthwise.
2. Place the eggs, cut side down, on a serving platter.
3. Slice the cheddar cheese into small triangles.
4. Cut a slit in the top of the egg closest to the narrow side and slide in 2 cheddar cheese triangles to resemble bunny ears.
5. Finely dice the bacon and push 2 pieces into the narrow end of each egg to resemble eyes.
6. Chop the chives into 1 1/2 inch long pieces, and push 2 pieces into the egg just below each bacon eye to resemble whiskers.
