Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs
Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs always disappear in a flash when I bring them to parties! This classic appetizer has smoked salmon, goat cheese, sour cream, lemon, and chives.
People seem to either love deviled eggs or not be on board at all. For me though, I only like deviled eggs when they’re dressed up. Meaning, I’m not a big fan of the “classic” deviled eggs that are basically just eggs with mayonnaise added to them. I need a bit more going on!
There are infinite flavor variations for deviled eggs on the internet, but smoked salmon has always been one of my favorite flavor combinations.
There’s a little bit of goat cheese, sour cream, lemon, chives, and smoked salmon…totally delicious! Everyone always loves these when I bring them to parties.
AND they have the bonus of being a cold item, so you can make them a little bit ahead of time and just grab them from the fridge before you head out the door. I always thank myself afterwards when I make a “grab and go” dish because I remember how stressed I get when I try to make something at the very last minute. These are so easy for company!
If peeling hard-boiled eggs is difficult for you, you have to try this method. So many people swear by it and it always works well for me.
Hard-boil 8 eggs, then remove all the yolks to a bowl:
Next add some finely chopped smoked salmon, sour cream, soft goat cheese, lemon juice, chives, salt, and pepper:
Mix it all together to combine:
Either pipe the filling into the eggs, or use one of these cookie scoops instead. In case you couldn’t tell, I think using the scoops is a whole lot easier:
Sprinkle some extra chives on top before serving:
Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs
Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs always disappear in a flash when I bring them to parties! This classic appetizer has smoked salmon, goat cheese, sour cream, a little lemon, and chives.
- 8 large eggs
- ½ cup soft, spreadable goat cheese (not the crumbly kind)
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives
- ⅓ cup minced smoked salmon (2.5oz)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Hard boil the eggs per these instructions. This is the best method I know of for easy-peel hard-boiled eggs.
Peel the eggs, cut each egg in half, and remove all the egg yolks to a bowl. Then add the goat cheese, sour cream, lemon juice, chives, salmon, salt, and pepper. Stir well and taste it to make sure it’s seasoned to your liking.
Use a piping bag or cookie scoop to fill the egg halves with the smoked salmon goat cheese filling. Keep chilled in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Enjoy!
