And, I’m not talking about chocolate.
I’m talking boiled eggs and soldiers. There’s something about this classic breakfast that always make me feel comforted.

Nothing beats a good boiled egg and soldiers – and I have perfected them myself thanks to these foolproof tips from Jamie Oliver – and it makes the perfect Easter breakfast.
Especially if you serve them in one of these cute egg cups. What will you chose a bunny or a chick?

They also make great gift boxes for last minute Easter treats – just fill with chocolate eggs, cakes or other treats and tie with some ribbon and tag. Easter gift done.
Or, for a completely different take how about serving pudding in the style of ‘egg and soilders’? How cool is this:
