When spring comes around, I start to dream of deviled eggs. This would be in complete contrast to my youth, when I found them completely boring, dusted with paprika and sitting on a deviled egg plate.

But now that I’m grown up, I’ve graduated to fancier versions. And it’s completely turned me around.

Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs?  Greek Deviled Eggs? Count me in! 

Plus, they’re great on a keto diet—a rarity in an appetizer! 

Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs?  Greek Deviled Eggs? Totally a fan! 

I alternated garnish–no caviar on the kids’ eggs!

Have you discovered pre-cooked, pre-peeled eggs yet? Well they’ve totally changed my life. I had tried every way of hard cooking eggs—steaming, baking, boiling. And experimented with older versus newer eggs. I finally concluded that brown eggs will never peel cleanly. 

So, I started out this recipe with the idea of using 6 eggs, which is the number in the package. But I ended up with leftover filling, so upped the number to 8. Someday, I’ll go back and adjust the quantities.

In either case, if you have any extra, the filling is also great on crackers. Just ask my husband, who polished off the leftovers. Plus 8 deviled eggs halves.

Yup, he thinks my keto is amazing!

deviled eggs are perfect for Easter or Mother’s Day brunch--or a summer picnic.

Ingredients

  • 8 eggs, hard-cooked & peeled
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh chopped dill or 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 ounces diced smoked salmon
  • Garnish with extra dill and caviar (optional)

Instructions

Slice the eggs in half lengthwise. Remove the yolks carefully. Place the yolks in a mixer bowl and reserve the whites

Add the remaining ingredients to the egg yolk bowl.   Beat on medium speed until fluffy. With a small spoon, fill the egg whites with the egg yolk mixture. Cover loosely and refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.

Garnish each egg with a small sprig of dill.  Add a dollop of caviar to half (not all since you want your 6-year-old nephew to try them!).

    I have never met a deviled egg that I didn’t love! Adding smoke salmon is a wonderful idea, and I’ve never even thought about buying pre-cooked eggs. In fact, I’ve never seen them… I’ll have to take a look around (after the self isolation).

      I found them right by the regular eggs. How surprising is that–I usually expect things to be somewhere that doesn’t make sense :). Yes, I am doing a lot of ad libbing. Now I realize how badly organized I am and how many grocery store trips I take!
