"I love the natural/freshness of Trader Joe's refrigerated blue cheese dressing and am always finding new ways to use it, since it tastes so good (it is also very thick, and heavy on the chunks of blue cheese). This is something I made up as a late night snack. I usually eat 2-3 deviled eggs, but scale this recipe to how many eggs you want to prepare. Note: time does not include prep time for cooking the eggs."

Step 1

Carefully spoon the yolks out of the eggs and into a bowl.

Step 2

Break the yolks up with the back of a fork. Add blue cheese dressing and combine well.

Step 3

Scoop filling back into eggs.

Step 4

I like using a whole tablespoon of blue cheese dressing per egg, so the blue cheese flavor really shines, but it does make the filling softer than a regular deviled egg. If you choose to add less to make it thicker, you might want to top the eggs with blue cheese crumbles to get the same flavor. Please keep in mind that I like to use Trader Joe's refrigerated blue cheese dressing, which is very thick and heavy on the chunks of blue cheese (I have tried Lighthouse and it does not have the same flavor/would not be worth using in this recipe).

NOTE: I have never heard of adding crunchy things to deviled eggs, but if that is your thing, go for it (per a couple of reviewers)

These were a stellar addition to a tray of deviled eggs and one I'll use often! I used the thicker blue cheese dressing, but also threw in an additional tbs of crumbled blue cheese for 6 eggs and sprinkled them lightly with dill weed. Thank you for sharing this keeper!

Based on the other reviewers I added a bit of crunch...bacon...who doesn't love bacon...although I don't care for blue cheese the hubby does...so I made this for him...he really enjoyed the flavor but thought the yolks were too runny...and I thought by using chunky blue cheese that wouldn't happen...next time I will decrease the dressing a bit...made for FYC tag game...

These were tasty but the yolk mixture turned out a bit loose. I will be making these again soon and I will add a bit of fresh crumbled blue cheese. Like the previous reviewer I also think this could use a bit of crunch, bacon bits would work great in this recipe. Thx for sharing this recipe here. :-)

I love blue cheese, and looked forward to trying this recipe. It is delicious! And so easy. I still found myself wanting a bit of crunch, and want to add something next time to provide it....maybe finely diced celery, finely diced red pepper or crisp bacon? Will have to experiment. Made for FYC tag. Thanks for sharing!
