Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs
A taste of Alaska mixed into a holiday favorite recipe!
Yields: 24 deviled eggs
• 12 eggs
• 1/2c sour cream
• 2oz cream cheese softened
• 2T mayonnaise
• 1T fresh lemon juice
• 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
• 2T fresh chives, minced (plus extra for garnish)
• 4oz smoked salmon
• 1/2t pepper
• salt to taste
Hard cook or hard boil your eggs and submerge in a cold-water bath to cool. Peel the eggs cut them in half lengthwise, and very gently remove
the yolks to the bowl of a food processor. To the yolks, add the sour cream, cream cheese, mayonnaise, lemon juice, Worcestershire, chives, salmon, and pepper. Pulse in the food processor until smooth. Taste and season with salt as needed. *
Fill the egg whites with the salmon mixture (you can use a spoon, or a piping bag fitted with a tip to make it fancy, as pictured). Cover carefully with plastic wrap so as not to smash the filling and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Sprinkle
with minced chives and serve with lemon wedges.
Ham, Cheddar & Potato Frittata
Eggcellent way to start your Easter morning!
Yields: 6 slices
• 2T butter
• 2c russet potatoes, peeled and chopped in small, uniform cubes
• 1c diced ham
• 6 eggs
• 1/4c milk
• 1-1/2c cheddar cheese, grated
• 1/3c green onions, thinly sliced
• salt and pepper
Heat a 9-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat. Melt butter. Add potatoes and cook, frequently stirring, until translucent and tender (mine
took about 8 minutes, but it will depend on how small you cut them). Add diced ham to the potatoes and cook another 2 minutes.
In a bowl, whisk eggs, milk, 1c of cheese, green onions, and salt and pepper (ham adds a lot of salt so that you won't need much, maybe 1/4t). Pour into skillet, give a quick stir, cover, and reduce heat to low - 6 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat broiler. Remove lid from pan and top with remaining cheese. Transfer skillet to broiler and broil until eggs are set (no longer jiggling and firm to the touch), cheese is melted, and top begins to turn a nice golden brown. Garnish
with more green onion. Slice into six wedges and serve.
