Deviled eggs are a huge hit at the ranch. Every time I bring out deviled eggs, they disappear in a flash. Even these super unusual chicken liver pate deviled eggs were gone in seconds! Deviled eggs are the least I can do for non-stop farm fresh egg supply from my MIL.

Speaking of farm fresh eggs, it’s almost that time of year when everyone exchanges tips and tricks on how to cook and peel perfectly perfect hard-boiled eggs. Right?

Some say to stock up on eggs couple weeks early.

Some say to add a bit of baking soda in the water.

I say, use a steamer! Yes, I always steam my eggs when I make deviled eggs. I’ve shared detailed tips and tricks on cooking and peeling the hard boiled eggs here and here. But let’s quickly go through the basics.

  1. I steam my farm fresh eggs for about 15 minutes, and then soak them in a cold water.
  2. I crack the egg shell all around by gently rolling the egg between my palm and a counter, then put it back in to a bowl with water while I work on rest of the eggs. This way water sips through the cracks between the egg white and thin layer under the shells, separating two layers.
  3. Then carefully peel the shells. If it’s still hard to peel the shells, then do it under a running tap water.

Sure, old eggs work better for deviled eggs, but if you’re stuck with fresh eggs, don’t sweat. There is hope! 🙂

Just look at those perfect hard-boiled peeled eggs. ????

I do admit though, there were couple of stubborn eggs in the bunch, but that’s exactly why I steam a few extra. Besides, who doesn’t love to snack on hard-boiled eggs sprinkled with salt and pepper?? Not I!

As you know, I just had a baby. And apparently when you’re pregnant, you’re not supposed to eat smoked salmon! Ugh, a rule-follower that I am, I had to give it up for 9 months! And guess what was the first thing I had on my grocery list after the baby? Yes, smoked salmon. So delicious and versatile!

I had it for like a week on everything! Including these adorable deviled eggs. This is actually my very first recipe I made for my blog after Grant was born! So you can imagine how easy they’re to make. If I could do it with a newborn, you can do it too! (Disclaimer: I had my mom helping me though. ????)

  1. Hi Shinee – Deb from #FoodieFriDIY.  I wanted to stop by and let you know I’m featuring your deviled eggs on the round-up this week. They look so creamy and I know topped with the smoked salmon they will be absolutely divine! I’ve done some extra sharing and as always, thank you for linking up!

  2. Oh my gosh this look amazing! I love smoked salmon and deviled eggs. great combo!

  3. I love this idea of smoked salmon on deviled eggs! It really steps them up a notch! I also appreciate the tips on peeling those fresh eggs. I’ll be trying that.

  4. I will try the steaming technique, for some reason our grocery store eggs tend to be super fresh and hard to peel (I guess not a bad thing!).

    I would love to chop some fresh dill into these beauties. I love it with salmon.

    Your pictures are fantastic, Shinee!

    • Oh my gosh, fresh dill would be fantastic! I had wished I had some of those fresh stuff on hand when I was making it. Thanks for the compliment on my photography, Mila!

  5. Too bad you’re stuck with fresh eggs…I’ll trade you my old store bought ones 😉

    This sounds delicious.  Deviled is pretty much the only way I like my eggs and these would be great for Easter brunch (I always think of Deviled Eggs for Easter)

  6. These look delicious! I love smoked salmon!

  7. These deviled eggs would make such a lovely brunch! Smoked salmon is so fancy 🙂
