Go the extra mile on those protein packed eggs by adding smoked hard wood flavoring. Lunch or Brunch on Easter, nothing hits the spot like a Traeger smoked egg salad.

Ingredients

Large Eggs12
Celery, trimmed and finely diced1 stalk
Chives or Green Onion, minced2 Tbsp. chives or 1 green onion
Mayonnaise1/2 to 3/4 cup, as needed
Fresh Lemon Juice2 tsp., or more to taste
Mustard2 tsp.
Coarse Salt (kosher)to taste
Black Pepper, freshly groundto taste
Smoked Paprikafor garnish
Bread or Crackersfor serving

Preparation

Put the eggs in a large saucepan and cover with water by 1 inch. Bring to a rolling boil over medium-high heat. Remove from the heat and cover with a tight-fitting lid. Let the eggs sit in the hot water for 8 minutes, then drain. Cover with ice water.

When cool enough to handle, peel the eggs under cold running water. When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 -5 minutes).

Arrange the peeled eggs on the grill grate and smoke for 30 minutes. (They will develop a light brown color from the smoke.) Transfer to a plate or bowl and let the eggs cool.

Dice the eggs and place in a mixing bowl. Add the celery, chives, mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard, and salt and pepper to taste. If the salad looks dry, add more mayonnaise.

Mound the egg salad in a serving bowl and lightly dust the top with the smoked paprika. Serve with bread or crackers.
