Bill has a thing for deviled eggs. His eyes practically glaze over when our friend, Sally, brings a platter to our 4th of July party. I treated the hubby to a batch of Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs, being the nice wife that I am. He was thrilled!

At our house, I can’t get too crazy when it comes to deviled eggs. I kept the filling rather basic. If the color appeared “off” with the addition of spices, avocado or any of the numerous options, I’d get drilled on the exact ingredients before any tasting could begin.

So some mayo and Dijon were mixed into my grated yolks, then I checked the fridge for garnishes. Bacon came to mind, but I had some smoked salmon as well as jars and jars of caper berries on the door. The picky hubby could pull off the capers and he’d be set! I had a feeling he’d approve of these smoked salmon deviled eggs.

Well, as I predicted Bill removed the capers and dill, but happily devoured his share of barely garnished smoked salmon deviled eggs. Nick thought they were good enough for snacks and breakfast. He was curious about the garnishes but gobbled them right up.

He’s home for the summer before starting grad school and lets me know that he’s always hungry! No wonder I’m hitting the market every other day!

How to Cook Hard Boiled Eggs

Everyone wants to know the best technique for making hard boiled eggs. One where the shell comes off and there’s no green ring around the yolk. Here are a few tips for making hard boiled eggs.

  • Use older eggs. They peel more easily than fresh eggs. After you purchase your eggs, don’t cook them for at least a week.
  • Try this Krups Egg Cooker. I found my eggs peeled more easily using this gizmo.
  • To make hard boiled eggs, place the eggs in a saucepan and fill with cool water to an inch over eggs. Bring water to a rolling boil, cover the pan with a lid and remove from heat. Set timer for 10 minutes. While waiting for the eggs to cook, fill a bowl with water and ice. Set aside. When the timer goes off, remove the eggs and place in ice water. After the eggs cool for a minute, crack the shells a bit as this will help the peeling process.
  • Start peeling from the large end when eggs are chilled. Peel under running water to help clean the bits of shell off the egg.
  • Always store your cooked eggs in the refrigerator.
  • Find a ceramic egg crate to serve!

Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs

Do you have an Instant Pot? Mine stayed in its box until about a month ago. Over the holidays, I was having lunch with some girlfriends who extolled the advantages of cooking with an IP. The best chicken broth, the fastest ribs, and on and on.  I finally started experimenting.

One thing I’ve learned is that the Instant Pot makes perfect hard boiled eggs. And I mean perfect.

  • Put the rack in your IP along with 1 cup of water.
  • Add the rack and place your eggs on the rack.
  • Place the lid on and shut. Move the valve to seal.
  • Set to High Pressure for 5 minutes. It will take 5 minutes to come to pressure, then 5 minutes to cook.
  • When the 5 minute cook time is up, let the IP do a natural release for 5 minute.
  • After 5 minutes, carefully move the valve to release any leftover steam (wear an oven mitt).
  • Open the lid and carefully move the eggs to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking.
  • Peel when cool. You won’t believe how easily the shells release!!

Now you can make these wonderful Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs!

  9. mmm…smoked salmon…I love these deviled eggs!

  10. We love devilled eggs too, but I haven’t made them in a while. I like to get small eggs so that they are a little easier to eat. I didn’t know that aging the eggs makes them better to hard boil, thank you for that tip.

  11. Now this is a deviled egg I would eat! Truly I usually only like the middle! Have a great 4th, Liz!

  12. These eggs are beautiful Liz, they look like a piece of art, love the salmon caper combo! Happy fourth to you!

  13. I just finished making some deviled eggs to take to a party this afternoon . .. and I jazzed them up, too. I adapted a Taste of Home recipe for Bacon Bourbon Maple devlied eggs. After making the candied bacon, you add half of the crumbled stuff to the egg mixture, then garnish with the rest. I’ll let you know. Mr. Rosemary is like Bill — don’t mess with a a good thing. But bacon?!?!

  14. They look very delicious! I will prepare sometimes like this for today evening.

  15. I had no idea older egg peel better than fresh, thank you ma’am! My family would eat the capers and not the dill. Gottal love em!

  16. What a great recipe for summers dinners! I love as well the capers 😉

  17. Beautiful, Liz! Think I’m all set to hold an impromptu Independence Day picnic party!
