▢1 tablespoon fresh snipped or chopped chives
▢1 teaspoon smoked paprika
▢2-3 slices cold smoked salmon, torn into small pieces
➤ Step-by-Step Guide to Making it :
Hard boil eggs using your preferred method. Plunge eggs into ice water bath to cool for at least 5 minutes.
Peel eggs, cut in half lengthwise and pop out or carefully spoon out egg yolks into a small bowl. Set aside egg white halves.
Mash egg yolks with fork. Add cream cheese, mayonnaise, dry mustard and salt and pepper to taste. Mix until well combined and creamy.
Stir in chopped chives. Taste for seasoning, add a little more mayonnaise if too thick.
Using one or two small spoons, mound egg yolk mixture into egg white halves. Alternately, you can pipe in the mixture.
Sprinkle eggs with smoked paprika and place small slices of smoked salmon on top. Chill until ready to serve.
➤ Recipe Notes:
- To make sure your eggs are easy to peel, use eggs that are a few days old rather than fresh eggs.
- If you want to make the eggs ahead of time, you can prepare the egg mixture and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a day. Fill the egg whites just before serving.
- If you don’t have smoked salmon, you can substitute with cooked bacon or ham.
