Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs is one of my most requested appetizer! They are simply delicious and a nice change from your basic deviled egg recipe. This recipe uses sour cream as the base binder however it was a little difficult to make them as chicks (peeps). If you want to make them that way I would switch the amounts for mayonnaise for sour cream and visa versa, and they likely will turn out perfect. Actually as I look at them, they kind of each have their own personality!
I am curious about how you make your hard-boiled eggs? I used to get so frustrated when they did not peel properly after boiling them. I think I tried every trick in the book. Now, the only way I make hard-boiled eggs is in my Instapot. It takes only 5 minutes on high manual setting and 1 cup of water. They come out perfect every single time. No more nasty looking eggs that don't peel right. The yolks are perfect, if you want to make a soft boiled egg just cook for 3 minutes instead of 5. Honestly it is worth getting an Instapot for this purpose alone, but of course it is a handy, time-saving piece of kitchen equipment for numerous things.
