Success - request sent close

3 tablespoons regular or low-fat sour cream

teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic

teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh chives

2 ounces ( cup) minced smoked salmon


3 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh chives

3 tablespoons finely minced red onion

1 tablespoon seasoned rice vinegar (optional)

Halve the eggs lengthwise and transfer the yolks to a mixing bowl. Set the egg white halves on a platter, cover, and refrigerate.

With a fork, mash the yolks to a smooth consistency. Add the mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard, garlic and salt; mix until smooth. (You can also do this using an electric mixer with a whip attachment.) Stir in the chives and salmon until evenly mixed in. Taste and season accordingly.

Spoon the mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a large plain tip, then pipe the mixture evenly into the egg white halves. Or fill the eggs with a spoon, dividing the filling evenly.

To make the topping, in a small bowl, mix the chives, onion and vinegar, if desired. Top each egg half with about teaspoon of the mixture.

Makes 24.

Cook's note: You can use either hard- or cold-smoked salmon in these elegant but surprisingly easy stuffed eggs. If you are using cold-smoked salmon or lox, a tiny piece on top of each egg adds extra flair. Pair with a fresh arugula and roasted beet salad for lunch.
