Filled Eggs

dsc01195Easters in Estonian ” Lihavรตtted”. which mean in direct transaltion: take a meat, have a meat. Probably because after long winter was again possibility to eat some meat.

As probably everywhere we have tradition to paint eggs. My generations do not use synthetic colors, we paint eggs with onion skins or birch leaves.

And one more interesting fact. In Estonia we have day off only 14th of April.ย  We want to work so much..:)…

Filled Eggs can not miss from Estonian festive menu.

You can keep eggs simple, as in my picture. Or you can make them fancy, add some shrimps, caviar, fill eggsย  by using squirt.
