1. Classic Deviled Eggs
I’m including this one on my list of deviled egg recipes because knowing how to make the classic version makes it much simpler to execute the fancy ones that will follow. Be careful when you peel and fill the eggs because they’re much easier to eat if the whites stay as intact as possible.
6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled
3 tablespoons mayo
½ teaspoon mustard (use ground or liquid)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Cut each of the eggs in half and place the yolks in a bowl. Mash the yolks with a fork and add the mayo, mustard, salt, and pepper. Stir well to combine. Transfer the yolk mixture into the cavities of the whites. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
2. Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs
There’s something about the combination of eggs and salmon that is just so perfect. And it adds a level of decadence and deliciousness to a brunch item that you see all the time. Smoked salmon is easy to find at most supermarkets so don’t let it scare you off from giving this yummy recipe a try.

1 teaspoon salt

Add the sour cream, cream cheese, mayonnaise, lemon juice, chives, salmon, salt and pepper and beat until fluffy on medium speed. Use a spoon to transfer the yolk mixture into the whites. Cover and refrigerate for about a half hour. Garnish with chopped chives, salmon roe, salt, and pepper before serving.
