12 large eggs

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

7 slices deli ham (about 4 ounces)

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup relish

2 tablespoons Sriracha

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1/2 cup diced roasted red peppers

Microgreens, for garnish


  1. Place the eggs in a large wide pot and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium low and simmer 10 minutes. Drain and run under cold water until cool.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, add the ham and fry until browned on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove to a paper towel¿lined plate, then finely chop.
  3. Peel and halve the eggs. Carefully scoop out the yolks into a medium bowl and place the whites on a plate. Add the mayonnaise, relish and Sriracha to the bowl with the yolks; season with salt and pepper and mix and mash until smooth (or use a food processor to speed up this process). Stir in about three-quarters of the fried ham.
  4. Transfer the yolk mixture to a piping bag and pipe into the egg whites. Top with the roasted red peppers and the remaining fried ham. Garnish with microgreens.
