I love deviled eggs, and I love smoked salmon. So why not combine them? I found this recipe on Foodnetwork.com and had to try it out. The only change I made was to make the recipe half as big since it was only for Andy and me. And I still ended up eating most of it, since I loved them way more than Andy (he did agree that they were good, though).
- 4 extra large eggs
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1 ounce cream cheese, at room temperature
- 1 tablespoon mayo
- 1/2 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 tablespoons minced fresh chives, plus extra for garnish
- 2 ounces smoked salmon, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
On a lchf (low carb, high fat) diet you often end up eating a lot of eggs, simply because they contain hardly any carbs and are so easy to make. But I know I’ll get tired off only eating hard boiled or scrambled eggs, so I wanted to come up with some other options. This time I decided on a very simple egg salad made with whatever I already had in my fridge.
- 2 hard boiled eggs
- 6 slices of smoked ham
- 1 small green onion (about 2 tbsp) – chives would also work
- 2 tbsp. mayo
- Salt and pepper for seasoning
Boil and peal the eggs, let them cool while cutting up the ham and green onion.
Cut the eggs into squares and add everything to a bowl. Mix it well and eat as is or on a sandwich. I ate mine straight from the bowl and thought it was absolutely amazing! The smokey flavor of the ham was a perfect addition to the eggs and mayo, and I will definitely be making this again.
I use large eggs and boil them for 12 minutes. So all of this only took about 15 minutes.
