I made these edible fly agaric (or fly amanita) mushrooms quite often when I was a child. They are a beautiful appetizer or table decorations and also a good use of leftover Easter eggs.

These mushrooms are made from hard boiled eggs and tomatoes. For the white dots you can use mayonnaise, butter or cream cheese. For the green bed you can use any type of greens you like – lettuce, spinach, arugula, Italian parsley etc.
