Deviled Eggs with Smoked Salmon and Chives

Wishing You Health and Happiness in the New Year

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...Regardless of the season, deviled eggs are always a crowd pleaser, and while it may be shameless to admit it, I make them whenever I have a gang to feed or need a filler for the buffet table. We had what is euphemistically called a block brunch this weekend. In reality, it was an early cocktail party and all the neighbors were asked to contribute something to the bar or table. This version of the eggs was my contribution to the get-together. The recipe is fairly standard for deviled eggs, but the addition of smoked salmon makes it a bit more upscale and true to the regional tastes of the Pacific Northwest. If you need a last minute appetizer or an extra dish for your buffet table, you might want to give this recipe a try. I know you will be pleased. Here is how deviled eggs, Pacific Northwest-style, are made.

12 eggs
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup cream cheese, at room temperature
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/3 cup chopped chives, plus extra for garnish
2 ounces smoked salmon, finely chopped

1) Place eggs in a lidded pot and add enough water to cover eggs by 1 inch. Cover pan. Bring to a boil. Turn off heat and let stand 10 minutes. Remove to a bowl filled with ice water to cool completely.
2) Peel eggs. Halve eggs lengthwise. Remove yolks to a bowl. Place whites cut side up on a large platter.
3) Beat yolks, mayonnaise, cream cheese and Dijon mustard with a hand mixer until smooth. Stir in chives and salmon. Spoon some of the mixture into each egg white half. Garnish with chives. Yield: 12 servings.

  1. I wish you a very happy New Year Mary !

  2. Deviled eggs are a favorite dish here in the south. Several years ago I read s book in which the author boasts about the popularity of her deviled eggs. She includes room temperature butter in the yolk mixture. Of course I had to try it, and it does add a rich depth to the flavor and consistency. I don't have a recipe - something I have been preparing since I was about eight years old. I do make variations, and I know the salmon and chives would be a hit with my family.

  3. These eggs look delicious! Happy New Year Mary!

  4. You are so right. Deviled eggs are perfect no matter what the occasion. Happy New Year Mary.
