Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs

We have a friend of a friend who has chickens, which means we have access to lots of eggs from happy chickens. With an average of 5 dozen eggs per week, I have been trying different egg recipes, and this one is hands down mine and my husbands favorite. This came from Alex Navarro’s new cookbook: Transforming Recipes The Ultra low Carb Edition

Serves 6

1 dozen eggs, hardboiled, shells removed, cut lengthwise

½ cup sour cream

2 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 tablespoon freshly-squeezed lemon juice

1 tablespoon fresh chives, minced

4 ounces smoked salmon minced

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon freshly-ground pepper

2 ounces salmon roe (optional)

         Remove yolks from eggs and place in large bowl

         Arrange whites on platter, cut side up, and sprinkle with salt and pepper

         Add sour cream, cream cheese, mayonnaise, lemon juice, chives, salmon, salt and pepper to bowl with yolks

         Using a hand or electric mixer, beat ingredients on medium speed until fluffy

         Loosely cover bowl with plastic wrap and store in refrigerator for 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend

         When ready to serve, spoon out mixture and gently fill each egg white half. Garnish with salmon roe and chives.
