We’ve been really building up our deviled egg recipe collection over here.

Have you noticed all of the crazy recipes we’ve come up with over the last couple of years? A few of the recipes include avocado deviled eggs and deviled eggs with bacon. But there are loads more, if you poke around in the low carb snacks section of my website.

Today, though, I’m bringing you the recipe for my husband’s all time favorite deviled egg…and that’s saying something because the man knows his deviled eggs!

Chad, the husband, doesn’t do a whole lot of cooking for our family. It makes sense, because I enjoy it and I’m good at it.

But these eggs? He will ask me to add the ingredients to our grocery order and then make the eggs himself, because he loves them that much. I honestly think this might be the only food he’s ever made repeatedly, on his own, again and again. He LOVES them!

And really, what’s not to love about smoked salmon, cream cheese, and creamy deviled eggs? Nothing!

Easy Peel Boiled Eggs:

The easiest way to make boiled eggs that peel like a dream is to just use an Instant Pot! I’ve tested just about every other method and I can honestly say that this is the best!

We do the 5-5-5 method. Just place however many eggs you want in the Instant Pot, add 1 cup of water, and cook on high pressure for 5 minutes. Natural release for 5 minutes. Ice bath for 5 minutes. Easy peasy!

How long do deviled eggs last?

Stored in the refrigerator, deviled eggs are safe to keep for 2 days.

When we want deviled eggs all week, we boil enough eggs to make that happen and then just whip up a batch every couple days. Easy peasy!

What type of salmon?

We prefer these smoked salmon deviled eggs made with cold smoked salmon.

Cold smoked salmon is smoked at a lower temperature than hot smoked salmon and tends to be much more moist and smooth, while hot smoked salmon is more flaky and can be a bit drier.

Either cold or hot smoked salmon will work here, so just grab what you prefer!

Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

These keto deviled eggs are jam packed with smoked salmon to give them a smoky flavor. We also stir in cream cheese and then top them off with a bit of Old Bay.


  • 6 large hard boiled eggs
  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon, minced
  • Old Bay seasoning, for garnish


  1. Peel the hard boiled eggs and slice in half. Remove the yolks to a small bowl and set whites aside.
  2. Add the mayonnaise, cream cheese, dijon mustard, and salt to the bowl with the yolks and use a fork to mash it all together until smooth and creamy.
  3. Fold the smoked salmon into the mixture.
  4. Spoon the mixture evenly between the egg whites.
  5. Sprinkle with Old Bay just before serving.


You will likely have a bit of filling leftover. It's delicious eaten on it's own or on a low carb cracker.

We prefer cold smoked salmon in this recipe, but any smoked salmon will work.
