Are you looking for a new idea for bok choy? When I use bok choy, I tend to get stuck in the stir fry rut.

Does this happen to you?

I received a big bag of bok choy today in my Farm Fresh to You farm box, and I really wanted to find a new way to enjoy it. (I am hopeful this recipe for deviled eggs with bacon will become one of your favorites.)

Often, it is hard to find certain organic vegetables in the stores. Grocery stores usually have the “popular” organic vegetables like lettuce and carrots, but if you want something more fun, like bok choy, it can be difficult to find it grown organically. (*If you love vegetable appetizers, consider these Gluten Free Riced Cauliflower Cheddar Pancakes or these Sweet Potato Cheesy Nachos!)

I instantly gravitated towards a deviled egg recipe with bok choy and bacon as the main ingredients.

When in doubt of a vegetable, bacon will always save the day! Bacon makes these the best deviled eggs because it hides the bok choy :-).

I turned to Chef Watson for a little inspiration. It was a little worrisome when CW told me to dig out my Asian fish sauce. Now that I look back, it makes perfect sense as bok choy is an Asian vegetable. Although CW tends to get a little carried away with ingredient quantities, his food pairings tend to be right on.

Boil six organic cage free eggs. Eggs are high in omega vitamins and have yolks that are a dark yellow, almost orange.

Farm Fresh to You Chopped Bok Choy http://fearlessdining.com

I used my chopper to chop up the bok choy into small pieces.

Here is the egg mixture. As a big time bacon lover, I think it is great that I could use bacon grease instead of mayonnaise in this recipe.

  1. I also took pause when I hit the part about Asian Fish Sauce – can’t wait to try these!

  2. Never would have thought to combine asian flavours with deviled eggs. Seems like such a strange combination but I guess it must taste great. You have definitely got me curious to know what these deviled eggs taste like!

  3. I think the bacon grease might be my favorite ingredient, I don’t think it gets used enough. Sounds like a very tasty dish.

  4. haha! I agree, BACON always saves the day when you have vegetables you might not be too sure of! I had fried rice with bacon and bok choy tonight, coincidence!! Your eggs recipe looks delicious, and the added crunch from the bok choy will be perfect. I will try this for sure!

  5. I really like deviled eggs and you can make great combinations as you have done here.

  6. What a fun and new twist on deviled eggs.

  7. Love the addition of bok choy to your deviled eggs..so creative, healthy and delicious!

  8. G’day These look absolutely delish!
    Cheers! Joanne

  9. These look so delicious! I could eat them all up right now! So hungry πŸ™‚

  10. I love deviled eggs and don’t have them enough. Your recipe looks fantastic!!

  11. Thank God for “kosher” bacon. I have kept kosher for 30 years now and these are the kinds of things that are hard to let go. We now have beef bacon which is obviously not the real deal… but comes close to it πŸ˜‰

  12. These are a perfect appetizer for holiday parties! I love serving things that anyone can eat and they don’t need to know it’s gluten-free.
