I never met a deviled egg I didn’t love. They are the first thing I go for at parties, and I don’t mind making them for parties, EXCEPT I HATE peeling eggs! I have a bad tendency to under-cook hard boiled eggs to the point that they are cooked enough to be hard-boiled but almost impossible to peel. I must get it right sometimes, because I’ve already shared Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs and Creamy Horseradish Deviled Eggs.
Recently I found a recipe for Easy to Peel Eggs on The Pioneer Woman that calls for the eggs to be started in already boiling water. I always cold started them, but I decided to try it and it works! If there is a little hole in the shell you will lose some of the white in the water, but it hardens so fast that the egg is fine. They peeled much easier. I’ve only done it once this way, so I’ll have to see if it’s consistently easier.
Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs
For these Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs I used a full 8 ounces of smoked salmon, which means I could really taste it. That’s fine if you love smoked salmon, but if you want to lessen the taste, decrease the amount to 6 ounces to start, purée the assembled filling until no full pieces remain, taste, and then add more and purée again, if desired.

- 12 hard boiled eggs
- 6-8 ounces smoked salmon
- 4 ounces goat cheese cut up into pieces
- 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh dill
Carefully peel the eggs then slice each egg in half length-wise with a sharp knife. Remove the yolks by hold face down and pressing up lightly on the whites around the yolk, or work around the yolk with a butter knife until loose.
Place the yolks in a food processor or blender. Add the smoked salmon, goat cheese, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and dill. Purée until completely smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl if needed.
Fill the whites with the mixture, using a spoon or by filling a piping bag with a large decorating tip. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
Salmon can easily be adjusted to taste, starting with 6 ounces and increasing from there as desired.
